Blood Moon is to occur on May 26, 2021:
- A Blood Moon occurs when the Moon of the Earth is on a total lunar Eclipse. During this time, the moon looks red or ruddy brown. Thus it is called Blood Moon.
- The next Blood Moon is to occur on May 26, 2021. The last Blood Moon occurred on January 20-21, 2019.
- Lunar Eclipses happen only during a full moon. During this time, the moon is completely under the Earth’s shadow.
- At this time, a little bit of the sunlight that reaches the earth during sunrise and sunset falls on the moon.
- It can be noted that the sky is red in colour during sunrise and sunset.
- This means during this time out of all the seven VIBGYOR colours in the white light, only red reaches the earth.
- This red colour light is reflected on the moon and thus the moon turned into a Blood Moon.
