In countries where the eclipse is visible, the moon will turn red.
Why Moon turns Red?
Due to the Rayleigh scattering. It is because blue light has a shorter wavelength, red light has a longer wavelength. Thus, it can travel more directly through the atmosphere.
And since the earth is blocking the sun’s path towards the moon, sunlight has to travel through our planet’s atmosphere to reach it.
Hence, only red light is able to reach the moon, that is why it takes on a reddish hue. It will be a treat for sky gazers today. So, don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to praise mother nature.
