A Total Lunar Eclipse occurs in the orbital position where the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon and the Moon is completely under the shadow of the Earth. Since the Sun's rays are prevented from reaching the Moon in this location, the Moon is illuminated only by the light reflected from the Earth's atmosphere through a blue filter, thus taking on a red appearance. Astronomers call this state of the Moon "Blood Moon".
