The Earth's shadow appears red because of its atmosphere. Because the Earth passes between the sun and the moon during this cosmic event, the light of the sun has to pass through our planet's atmosphere, casting a shadow on the moon.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon takes on its ghostly red pallor because of the Earth's shadow.

"The moon is not always in flawless alignment with the sun and the Earth, so that is why we do not get a lunar eclipse every lunar cycle", Brad Tucker, an astronomer with the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, said in a statement. This is the same reason sunsets appear pink or red. The Moon will rise in a totally-eclipsed state and we will see about three quarters of the total phase of the eclipse. The eclipse will already have started by the time the Moon rises over the United Kingdom and Western Europe.
