What is Total Lunar Eclipse?

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up perfectly, casting Earth's shadow on the moon. Patient spectators may also catch a glimpse of the Blood Moon, caused by the little moonlight that gets refracted due to earth's atmosphere. It will gradually become darker and glow progressively redder over the next hour and a half. The first one called the Super Blue Blood Moon took place on January 31.

This is what gives the phenomenon the name "blood moon", though Mark Bailey of the Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland said the colour can vary greatly.

The eclipse of the moon will not be visible from North America or most of the Pacific.

When Mars happened to be closest to the Sun in its orbit, which occurred within a few weeks of opposition, a "perihelic opposition" resulted, and Mars appeared even bigger and brighter. It will be preceded and followed by partial eclipses lasting for more than an hour. This happens every 26 months.
