How is a lunar eclipse formed?

Lunar eclipses occur when the Earth is placed in the middle of the Moon and the Sun and heThe three celestial bodies are aligned. Also, they only occur in the full moon phase.

The earth blocks sun rays that reach the moon and form a cone of shadow that darkens it. In turn, the atmosphere acts as a “light filter” and prevents the projection of blue colors. All these circumstances makeand the moon can be seen with reddish toneswhat is known as “blood Moon”.

The partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon does not completely block sunlight, so that a bright crescent Moon is perceived from Earth.
