When Is The Next Blood Moon? The Dates For 2022

A Blood Moon is a very rare event, involving a total lunar eclipse which takes a reddish color. This lunar phenomenon is very rare, although, unlike in other years, 2022 will see 2 Blood Moons in May and November. This sensation is also known as a Red Moon, and is often associated with negative happenings, and bad news. However, in reality, its meaning is very simple and a marvel that shouldn't be missed out on. Susan Taylor reveals the dates, as well as what you need to know about this thrilling event, plus how to prepare for it.

What is a Blood Moon?

A Blood Moon is a member of a lunar tetrad set; composed of four total lunar eclipses in a row. Said eclipses are each separated by six lunar months, which is why there are so few of them. This phenomenon occurs when the Moon is in a total eclipse and then proceeds to light up the sky with a reddish color.

What happens during this lunar phenomenon?

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

Astrologist Susan Taylor's interesting fact:

The brightness of the Red Moon appears depends on 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.

How often do these events occur?

A Blood Moon usually occurs every two or three years. The number of total eclipses varies on a yearly basis, but in general there are up to three a year. In a single year, the maximum number of solar eclipses is four, as well as three lunar eclipses.
