Looming Blood Moon

This Sunday, star gazers can expect to see a rare blood moon in the sky.

The lunar phenomenon will be visible in the eastern sky around 8 p.m. on Sunday night, and will last until right before noon on Monday morning.

This blood moon is part of a serious of four, tied to the lunar eclipse we saw in April 2014.

Edwin Faughn of the Rainwater Observatory in French Camp explains that a blood moon is created by a lunar eclipse. This is when the sun, earth, and moon are directly in line and the suns rays hit the earth’s atmosphere projecting that color, which is usually red, onto the moon.

Faughn said that it is doubtful that the moon will be a very deep red this year but you should be able to see it as long as your have a view of the eastern sky that evening.
