Another Blood Moon?

Posted by Devin on

Hey everyone, Devin here,

Recently we all witnessed an awe-inspiring and stunning cosmic event: a Blood Moon!  This rare occurrence happens during a total lunar eclipse when the Earth lines up perfectly between the sun and the moon, blocking most of the light that normally reaches the moon.  A minor amount of light from the sun passes through the Earth's atmosphere before reaching the moon, resulting in a moon that appears red or brown.  

Well folks, as crazy as it seems, we here at have discovered another Blood Moon occurrence coming soon- Franklin's Blood Moon Popcorn Balls!
