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 ePopcorn.com have discovered another Blood Moon occurrence coming soon- Franklin's Blood Moon Popcorn Balls!
