Earth to Witness Blood Moon on April 4th
The observatories on earth will witness Red Moon or Blood Moon on 4th April, 2015, Third time in a span of year and a half.
Red Moon is observed when there is a Total Lunar Eclipse which goes through an Earth's shadow known as the amber core.
The action begins at 10:16 PM Pakistan Standard Time on the morning of April 4th when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow. For the next hour and 45 minutes, Earth's shadow will move across the lunar disk, ultimately swallowing the entire Moon at 11:58 PM Pakistan Standard Time.
The total eclipse of April 4, 2015, is the third of four total lunar eclipses separated by approximately 6 months, a phenomenon astronomers call a "tetrad." Such a closely-spaced succession of eclipses is a fairly rare occurrence. The complete list of dates is April 15th, 2014; Oct. 8th, 2014; April 4th, 2015; and Sept. 28th, 2015.
