Q. Will it be a Blood Moon?
This year’s Lunar Eclipse will also be known as Blood Moon as the reddish tint on its surface gives it a unique appearance. This phenomenon is due to rayleigh scattering. The Lunar Eclipse 2022 also coincides with Buddha Purnima and commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha. The date of Buddha Purnima varies depending upon the lunar calendar in use in the particular country or region.
