The super blood moon coincides with the total lunar eclipse seen in the world – fr


The moon put on a rare sight in many parts of the world on Wednesday, with the first total lunar eclipse in more than two years having coincided with a super moon.
The eclipse began at 1:46 a.m. PT on Wednesday, with the moon entering the darkest part of Earth’s shadow at 2:45 a.m., according to NASA. Part of the moon was in shadow until 5:53 a.m.

The flaming orange moon dazzled as it hovered over the Pacific sky as well as over the western half of North America, parts of South America and eastern Asia. The red-orange color of the “blood” super moon results from all sunrises and sunsets in the Earth’s atmosphere projected onto the surface of the eclipsed moon.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or shadow. During this type of eclipse, the moon gradually darkens, taking on a rusty or blood red color. The color is so striking that lunar eclipses are sometimes called blood moons.
