What is a lunar eclipse?
Specialists point out that the color and the feeling that the moon seems to be bleeding is due to the incidence of light on the surface of the moon. This phenomenon occurs when the Earth stands between the Sun and the Moon, which results in a few partial or total eclipses, depending on the light that illuminates the natural satellite.
In this case a shadow is generated on the moon. Celestial bodies interact with each other, and give that red color product of the sun’s radiation; that is why the moon turns red and is called Lunar Eclipse or Blood Moon.
But, in case science is not enough to describe this phenomenon, our ancestors also had one or another meaning to make spiritual predictions, that make this astronomical event even more interesting.
