What is a Lunar Eclipse?
Lunar Eclipses occur when the sun and the earth align, while the moon slips into the Earth’s shadow. Furthermore, Partial Lunar Eclipses are more common than a Total Eclipse, which is also known as a Blood Moon because the eclipsed moon appears to be Dark Red.
However, this has nothing to do with the moon, but rather the earth’s atmosphere as only sunlight reaching the moon passes through the Earth’s atmosphere. “The more dust or clouds on Earth’s atmosphere, the redder the moon will appear.” NASA explained.
