The phenomenon takes place when the planet Earth, the Sun and the Moon are lined up in a linear position. When the Moon enters Earth’s shadow it creates a lunar eclipse. So when the lunar eclipse happens, the entire Moon is consumed in the umbra. Umbra is basically the region of Earth’s shadow that is the darkest. The Moon turns into crimson colour when it slides inside the umbra. Due to this phenomenon, they are frequently mentioned as Blood Moons.
This Blood Moon is the last one and the following similar incident will take place on March 14, 2025.
