The phenomenon will be visible from January 20 both from the American continent, as well as from Western Europe and Africa, has reported the site RT. The eclipse of the blood superlative & # 39; It is actually three astronomical phenomena at the same time: a total lunar eclipse, a "blood moon" and a & # 39; superluna & # 39 ;.
It is said that the moon is dyed with blood because of the red color that it acquires moments before the total ecplipes. At this time the Earth satellite is located in the darkest part of Earth's shadow.
In addition, the eclipse will occur during the perigee of the Moon, that is, the point where his orbit is closer to the Earth. Here's the superluna name.
