What is a Blood Moon? 

A “blood moon” is a term used to describe a total lunar eclipse when the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow on the lunar surface. During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon can take on a reddish or coppery hue, hence the term “blood moon.” This reddish coloration is caused by the Earth’s atmosphere scattering sunlight as it passes through, filtering out the blue wavelengths and allowing the longer red wavelengths to reach the Moon, creating the characteristic color. The intensity of the red color can vary depending on atmospheric conditions, such as the amount of dust and clouds present. Lunar eclipses, including blood moons, are safe to observe with the naked eye and are fascinating celestial events enjoyed by astronomers and skywatchers alike.

In this podcast, Branden Talks about how blood moon experience from his photography shoot.
