Total Lunar Eclipse or Blood Moon will occur on 27-28 July 2018 with Moon transiting in Uttarashada-Sravana constellations of Makara Rasi (Capricorn) according to Vedic Astrology. This lunar eclipse 27-28 July 2018 will be visible throughout the globe, except in North America.
Complete lunar eclipse can be seen from Indian subcontinent, East Africa, parts of Russia and Middle-East countries.
As the eclipse begins, Earth’s shadow first darkens the Moon slightly. Then, the shadow begins to “cover” part of the Moon, turning it a dark red-brown color (typically – the color can vary based on atmospheric conditions). The Moon appears to be reddish because of Rayleigh scattering (the same effect that causes sunsets to appear reddish) and the refraction of that light by Earth’s atmosphere into its umbra.
