So this is coming up and unless it is poring rain, I fully expect to be out and watching this. You have four solar eclipses in the next year, so collect all four and get the kids outside too! Plus this is happening on tax day, so a ‘blood moon’ may feel apropos.
The upcoming ‘blood moon’ has undoubtedly excited many astronomers and amateur stargazers alike and the event is just one of four ‘blood moons’ expected to happen over the next year and a half. As detailed in an April 2 report from DesignNTrend, in just two weeks, on Tuesday April 15, a total lunar eclipse will occur, a phenomenon that occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon.
The following text further explains the ‘blood moon‘ phenomenon.
“As the Earth begins to cast its shadow on the moon, the moon will partially disappear from view. Then the moon begins to appear brighter with a red or orange hue thanks to Earth’s atmosphere bending toward the moon,” DesignNTrend writes.
Too cool. More here!
