Here is an incredible photo of the most recent blood moon taken by @halland71.
Did you know a lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind earth and into its shadow? This can occur only when the sun, earth, and the moon are aligned.
During a total lunar eclipse, earth completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the moon. The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by earth's atmosphere. This light appears reddish for the same reason that a sunset or sunrise does: the rayleigh scattering of bluer light. Due to this reddish color, a totally eclipsed Moon is sometimes called a blood moon.
