How does a lunar eclipse happen?
As the Moon orbits, the Earth and the Earth orbits the Sun, sometimes, the Earth moves in between the Sun and the Moon, which is what we refer to as a lunar eclipse. When that happens, the Earth partially or completely blocks sunlight from reaching the Moon. This causes a shadow on the Moon’s surface.
What is a total lunar eclipse?
There are two kinds of lunar eclipses—total and partial. A partial lunar eclipse happens a part of the Moon enters the Earth’s shadow. During partial eclipses, Earth’s shadow usually appears very dark on the side of the Moon. But what people see from Earth depends on how the Sun, Earth and Moon align.
A total lunar eclipse, on the other hand, happens when the Sun and Moon are on exactly opposite sides of our planet. But even though the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow, some sunlight still reaches the Moon, making it appear red. The moon appears red during a full lunar eclipse for the same reason why the sky appears blue to us. The sun’s light passes through the Earth’s atmosphere, where the blue light is scattered in all directions due to its short wavelength. This allows redder light to pass through and reflect off the Moon.
