Blood Moons in astronomy. The full moon nearly always appears coppery red during a total lunar eclipse. That’s because the dispersed light from all the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets falls on the face of the moon at mid-eclipse. Thus the term blood moon can be and probably is applied to any and all total lunar eclipses. It’s only in years where volcanic activity is pronounced that the moon’s face during a total lunar eclipse might appear more brownish or gray in color. Usually, the moon looks red. We astronomy writers often say it looks blood red. Why? Because it sounds dramatic, and a lunar eclipse is a dramatic natural event.

What’s more, in folklore, all the full moons have names. The names typically coincide with months of the year, or seasons. One of the most famous moon names is the Hunter’s Moon. It is the the full moon immediately following the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon occurring most closely to the autumnal equinox.
The Hunter’s Moon, in skylore, is also sometimes called the Blood Moon. Why? Probably because it’s a characteristic of these autumn full moons that they appear nearly full – and rise soon after sunset – for several evenings in a row. Many people see them when they are low in the sky, shortly after they’ve risen, at which time there’s more atmosphere between you and the moon than when the moon is overhead. When you see the moon low in the sky, the extra air between you and the moon makes the moon look reddish. Voila. Blood moon.

[sidebar: BLOOD RITUAL METZITZAH B'PEH of course was the perfect match of GOTROCKS KING OF PAEDOPHILA U$A STANDARD OIL MONARCHY! The so called CHOSEN 'JEWS' were sick and the sickest of the Homo Sapiens decided to be worse than any demonic curse set into motion by some superstition called RELIGION.
RELIGION YOKE HOAX/ES.
ROCKEFELLERS purchased the First Baptist Church, BOSTON. Now we know the people there haven't evolved any higher in consciousness than have the ideologies of the Middle Eastern superstitions. Beheading continues to this day, torture and hanging people too -- ask George W. Bush "Jr." a senior member now of Paedophiliaic Global Cult U$A. Look to Clinton HILLARY for other BLOOD RITUALS, Lybia and then Blood Sacrifice Stevens "What Does IT Really Matter" !!!]
