Lunar Eclipse is a natural phenomenon that takes place when the earth comes in between the sun and the moon and blocks the light of the sun from reaching the moon. The moon passes through the earth’s shadow, making the mood reddish brown or blood red in colour. In simpler words, when the moon is left dark, the lunar eclipse occurs. Mythological stories suggest that lunar eclipse takes place when “paap grah” or Rahu or Ketu grasps hold of the moon and stops the reflection of the moon’s light.
This is also going to be the second and last eclipse of this year. NASA is calling it an almost total lunar eclipse. The reason behind this is that only 99.1 per cent of the moon will pass into Earth’s umbra.
It is advised that you shouldn’t be watching it with your naked eyes. You should use a binocular to watch it instead. According to astrologers, this eclipse will have its effect on people with Taurus sun sign. They will have to take care of their health and finances.
