In October 2021, there is a blood moon that coincides with a total Solar Eclipse. The blood moon is a red lunar eclipse. So, basically, it’s a fancy word for a blood moon.


People in Australia, parts of the western US, western South America, or in South-East Asia, saw the Super Flower Full Moon totally eclipsed and turn a shade of red for about 14 minutes during this total lunar eclipse. (Source: www.timeanddate.com

The eclipse took place just a few hours after the Moon reached perigee, the closest point to Earth on its orbit, making it a Super Flower Blood Moon.

Areas with lighter shadings right (East) of the center will experience the eclipse until moonset/sunrise. Actual eclipse visibility depends on weather conditions and line of sight to the Moon.

Lunar eclipses can be visible from everywhere on the night side of the Earth, if the sky is clear. From some places the entire eclipse will be visible, while in other areas the Moon will rise or set during the eclipse. (Source: www.timeanddate.com What is a Super Moon?

The Moon was below the horizon during this eclipse, so it was not possible to view it in Lahore. (Source: www.timeanddate.com)A total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a Blood Moon, because of the reddish tinge the Full Moon takes on when fully eclipsed. The term is also frequently used to describe four total lunar eclipses that occur in a row. (Source: www.timeanddate.com)

Blood Moon is not a scientific term, though in recent times it is being widely used to refer to a total lunar eclipse because a fully eclipsed Moon often takes on a reddish color—like in the image below, which was taken during the total lunar eclipse in September 2015. (Source: www.timeanddate.com

A total lunar eclipse happens when the Moon travels through the Earth's umbra and blocks all direct sunlight from illuminating the Moon's surface. However, some sunlight still reaches the lunar surface indirectly, via the Earth's atmosphere, bathing the Moon in a reddish, yellow, or orange glow. (Source: www.timeanddate.com)So, why does the Moon turn red? (Source:www.timeanddate.com))

Depending on the composition of the atmosphere, different parts of the light spectrum are filtered out, so the Moon may also look yellow, orange, or brown during a total lunar eclipse. (Source: www.timeanddate.com As the Sun's rays pass through the atmosphere, some colors in the light spectrum—those towards the violet spectrum—are filtered out by a phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering. This is the same mechanism that causes colorful sunrises and sunsets. Red wavelengths are least affected by this effect, so the light reaching the Moon's surface has a reddish hue, causing the fully eclipsed Moon to take on a red color. (Source:www.timeanddate.com))

The 2014–2015 lunar tetrad gathered a lot of attention because of claims by some religious organizations that the eclipses in the tetrad were a sign of the end times. Some even called the eclipses Blood Moons after a statement in the Book of Joel in the Hebrew Bible, that referred to the Sun turning dark and the Moon turning red before the second coming of Jesus. (Source: www.timeanddate.com The term Blood Moon is also sometimes used to refer to four total lunar eclipses that happen in the span of two years, a phenomenon astronomers call a lunar tetrad. The eclipses in a tetrad occur about six months apart with five uneclipsed Full Moons between them. (Source:www.timeanddate.com))

The Full Moon in the month of October is also sometimes called a Blood Moon in many North American cultures. This name comes from the fact that October is usually when hunters spend time hunting game and preparing meat for the coming winter. The October Full Moon is also known as Hunter's Moon or Harvest Moon. (Source: www.timeanddate.com)

The title of "Blood Moon" is normally reserved for total lunar eclipses. Though not a total eclipse, because, according to NASA, 99.1 percent of the moon will be within the darkest part of Earth's shadow, this partial eclipse is almost total enough to be considered a Blood Moon. (Source: www.newsweek.com On Thursday an almost complete lunar eclipse will turn November's full moon, the Beaver Moon, a blood-red color. The partial eclipse will be the longest eclipse for 580 years, according to Space.com, lasting 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds. (Source:www.newsweek.com wA lunar eclipse happens when the moon, the sun, and the Earth align, with the Earth in between the moon and the sun. This leads to the shadow of the Earth falling on the moon. When the moon is completely in the darkest part of Earth's shadow, the umbra, it is a total eclipse. (Source:ww.newsweek.com)))

Asteroid the Size of the Great Pyramid To Pass Earth During Full Moon (Source: www.newsweek.com Partial lunar eclipses happen because the moon, the sun, and our planet aren't always perfectly aligned, meaning that sometimes only part the moon falls within Earth's shadow. Or it falls in the less dark part of Earth's shadow, the penumbra, in something called a penumbral eclipse. (Source:www.newsweek.com))

A diagram showing a lunar eclipse. November's eclipse won't be total, but as 99.1 percent of the moon will be in Earth's shadow, it is considered "almost total." NASA (Source: www.newsweek.com The peak of the eclipse will happen at 4:03 a.m., the best time to see the Beaver Moon as a "Blood Moon" as this will be the point when the red coloration is most visible. (Source:www.newsweek.com wBecause Blood Moons are usually associated with total lunar eclipses, we can easily predict how many Blood Moons Earth will experience each year For instance, in 2022 the Earth will see two total lunar eclipses, one on May 15, the other on November 7.

(Source:This is actually below the average of lunar eclipses for a year, which is three. Lunar eclipses only happen when the moon is full. This means though it only takes 29.5 days to orbit Earth and complete a full cycle from full moon to full moon, because the moon's orbit is angled at five degrees, it often slips above or below Earth's shadow.

Astronomers don't really like the term "Blood Moon" to describe lunar eclipses. This is because the moon is, of course, not actually "turning red." Nothing is actually happening to the moon, it's just the effect of our atmosphere. (Source: www.newsweek.com In the case of a lunar eclipse, because the Earth is in between the sun and the moon, photons from the sun have to traverse Earth's atmosphere to hit the moon and be reflected. This means there is more opportunity for red photons to be scattered. (Source:www.newsweek.com))

Also, how "red" the moon will appear depends strongly on how many clouds and how much dust is in the Earth's atmosphere. That means that the "Blood Moon" effect is often very subtle and barely noticeable. (Source: www.newsweek.com That doesn't mean the partial eclipse on November 19 won't be worth watching, however. The almost total eclipse of the Beaver Moon, which takes its name from the fact beavers prepare for winter as it occurs, will be visible in various regions of the globe, including North America, eastern Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.
