The first of two lunar eclipses is scheduled to take place approximately next Monday. According to RT, this lunar eclipse will begin at 21:20 GMT.

“A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon align, causing the Earth’s shadow to fall on the moon, darkening it. The crimson color the moon takes on during an eclipse comes about because of the refraction of sunlight through the Earth’s atmosphere. This, incidentally, is the very same effect that causes sunsets to appear red. ” – RT Report
