What happens during a Blood Moon?
The Moon normally reflects the light of the Sun and so we always see it as white or yellowish color. When this light changes an eclipse appears, as the Earth interferes the rays reflected by the Moon are no longer the same.
When there is a total lunar eclipse, the Moon passes through the Earth's shadow and at this moment the green and blue light is dispersed and only a reddish light comes out of our atmosphere. The dispersal of light makes the Moon look red.
Seeing the Moon turn red is very impressive and can scare people into thinking something bad is about to happen. Seeing this unique event is more associated with good luck and fortune than anything negative.
Astrologist Susan Taylor's interesting fact:
The brightness of the Red Moon appears depends pollution levels, atmospheric debris and cloud cover. If an eclipse takes place after a volcanic eruption for example, the Moon will look darker than usual.
