Super Blood Moon To Appear On Sept. 27th

For only the sixth time since the year 1900, a “total lunar” eclipse will take place this Sunday, September 27th. “Blood Moon”, a term coined for the deep red portrayed from the Moon, occurs when the Earth’s atmosphere refracts the sun’s rays. This occurrence invariably illuminates the Moon because only a certain amount of light (the Earth’s Penumbra) is now hitting the Moon from a rare angle.

Unfortunately, the full lapse Blood Moon will only be visible for about half-of the U.S. (midwest-east coast).
