Why does the moon appear red?
You may be wondering why the moon looks red on the eclipse; In fact, when the earth comes between the sun and the moon during the lunar eclipse, then the sun’s ray will stop. Due to the atmosphere of the Earth, light turns to the moon and this is why the moon is red. Let me tell you that when a full moon ascendant happens then blood moon happens.
