While the colors of ‘The Circle of Light’ Festival paint the city of Moscow this weekend, Muscovites and people from all around the world will have the opportunity to see a real cosmic show in the sky – the last one until the year 2033. A Blood Moon is a total lunar eclipse, when its colour goes a dull red or copper colour as it passes into the Earth’s shadow, as the Sun’s light is refracted and scattered forward through our atmosphere and onto the Moon’s surface. On the evening of September 27/28 the moon will be at its closest point to Earth for the first time in 32 years. In Moscow, the visible changes will start at 5 am on September the 28th. You won’t need special glasses to view it, so it will be worth staying up and waiting for clear skies.
