Why Sometimes The Moon Becomes Red?
The exciting color (Orange to Red) of the moon sometimes looks like a horror movie moon scene, but we often wonder why this happens.
This Reddish Colored Moon arises due to the light reflection of the sun from the surface of the moon. When the moon passes through the Umbra of the Earth, some of the sunlight is reflected from the Earth’s atmosphere before hitting the moon.
Shorter wavelength colors scatter more easily than longer wavelength colors, which include Red and Orange. The greater the clouds or specks of dust particles are present in the Earth’s atmosphere during the Lunar Eclipse, the reddish color moon will appear.
