During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colourful appearance from bright orange to blood red and more rarely dark brown to very dark gray, depending upon the part of the Earth's shadow it would be passing through.
"Whenever, the Sun, Earth and Moon come in a ideal straight line, as the Sun's rays falls on the Earth, the Earth's shadow falls onto a patch of space, and only when, the Moon enters that patch of shadow, we see a lunar eclipse", he said. This means that the Earth will obstruct direct sunlight from reaching the satellite's surface. The moon appears 75 times larger, at 1,800 arc seconds, by comparison.
Will moon actually turn red during Blood Moon?
Why red, you might ask? During the summer months, Earth also swings out to its furthest distance from the sun, allowing it to cast a particularly long shadow. Though concealed by the sun, the moon is still flecked with a few stray particles of light filtered through Earth's atmosphere. The air around Earth scatters more of the short-wave light, like green and blue, than the longer wavelength light, which is on the red end of the spectrum. Including phases where the moon is partially masked, the event will last almost four hours total.
