A blood moon is simply the name given for the color that the moon turns during a total lunar eclipse, when the sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere bends around the planet and scatters the shorter wavelength light (blues and greens) and leaves the redder end of the spectrum to fall onto the moon's surface.
"It's the first full moon of 2019 and the first lunar eclipse of 2019". The Earth will come between the Sun and the Moon in just the right way so that the Earth's shadow is cast entirely across its moon.
The Sun appears as a disk or in a crescent shape during a partial solar eclipse and its nature may differ according to the location ton Earth and the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and the Earth. The eclipse is called a Super Blood Wolf Moon and will give sky gazers alluring views over parts of the Earth.
While solar eclipses must be viewed with special equipment to protect the eyes, lunar eclipses won't hurt your eyesight.
