This phenomenon will be visible from January 20, both from the American continent, and from Western Europe and Africa, according to the RT website. The eclipse of the “bloody moon” is actually three astronomical phenomena at the same time: the total lunar eclipse, the “blood moon” and the “moon of the moon”.
It is said that the moon is stained with blood because of the red color that it acquires a few seconds before a total eclipse. At that time, the Earth satellite is in the darkest region of the shadow on Earth.
In addition, an eclipse will occur during the perigee of the moon, that is, the point at which its orbit is closest to Earth. Hence the name Supermon.
