Bloody Red Moon?

The Chinese news below said that the moon would appear in bloody red this evening from 7.23pm to 8.24pm.

新明日报报道,地球上将可看到“血月亮”?

专家说,月亮将在明天傍晚变成血一样的红色,过程长达90分钟。这样的现象甚至被称为“血月蚀”!

原来,月亮将在明天走进地球的影子,它只会被折射的太阳光线照亮,而且大部分是红光和黄光,所以月球将“变成”有如血一样的暗红色。

据了解,月亮最红的时刻将于傍晚6时37分出现,不过在本地却无法看见。只有从晚上7时23分至8时24分进入半蚀阶段时,才有可能看到红月亮。

就算如此,月亮也已经可能过了红色的阶段,看起来将呈灰色。

Since, I can’t see it anyway, I should perhaps imagine it!

I’m probably too stressed tonight.
