This phenomenon is also called blood moon because the moon appears slightly reddish-orange in it. Significantly, for the first time after 21 January 2019, a full lunar eclipse is going to happen.A full lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, causing the Sun's rays to not reach the Moon directly. Conversely, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the Earth and the Sun and casts shadows on the Earth by blocking the Sun's rays.This year's first full lunar eclipse is rare in many ways. It will be called a supermoon on the eclipse day and will be of blood red color. These two coincidences occur once in many years. According to scientists, this is called a super lunar event. Because it will also be a supermoon, there will be an eclipse and the moon will look bloody red.According to science, when the moon is completely covered behind the Earth, there is no light of the sun on it. It goes into darkness. But the moon is never completely black. It starts to look red. Therefore, a full lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon.The lunar eclipse is an astronomical event. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon and when the Moon comes out of the Earth's shadow. When the Earth stops the sun's rays completely, it is called a full lunar eclipse but when only a part of the moon is hidden it is called a partial lunar eclipse.The lunar eclipse always occurs on the full moon night. A lunar eclipse occurs only when the moon passes through the shadow of the earth maximum three times in a year.Partial eclipse will be seen on 26 May in some cities of India. These cities include Agartala, Aizawl, Kolkata, Cherrapunji, Cooch Behar, Diamond Harbor, Digha, Guwahati, Imphal, Itanagar, Kohima, Lumding, Malda, North Lakhimpur, Puri, Silchar.
