As the earth moved between the moon and the sun on Wednesday night, earthlings witnessed the phenomenum that is a rare sight for South Australians as the moon turned red in a lunar eclipse. Camera buffs and star gazers were treated to an hour long spectacle across the south east.
It is rare for South Australians to witness the full eclipse, making this event even more spectacular.
Millicent’s Boyd and Helen Groeneveld told wattlerangenow they enjoyed a front row view of the hour long ‘blood moon’ eclipse as they travelled down the Coorong on their way home from Adelaide Wednesday night.
