"The Blood Moon"
Lunar eclipses are very rare and really exciting to see!
Shockingly, the moon turns marronish brown in a lunar eclipse. It's not something you see every day! There are many other eclipses in this world. It's very unique that only two to four times a year a full moon is just in the right position for its orbit to go through Earth's shadow so we can see a lunar eclipse from earth.

The Beautiful Blood Moon
A total lunar eclipse could actually last up to 1 hour and 45 minutes! To have a lunar eclipse the moon has to be in its full moon phase. What causes the moon to turn marronish brown in a lunar eclipse is for the same reason that the sun looks red when it rises and sets. It's because of the dust and other pollutions that are in Earth's air.
