The lunar eclipse on May 26 will be a special astronomical event as there will be a supermoon, lunar eclipse and red blood moon in one go. When the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, a lunar eclipse occurs. Due to this situation, the shadow of the Earth covers the entire light of the moon. In this case, when the light of the sun collides with the earth’s atmosphere, the moon becomes bright when the light falls on the moon. When the moon slowly reaches behind the earth, its color becomes darker and starts to look like copper color ie dark red. Due to this color, it is called Blood Moon
