Total Lunar Tetrad’s First “Blood Moon” Expected on Monday Night

In United States, it will be a total bust when residents of east of the Mississippi River experience total lunar eclipse. This extraordinary feature is expected to appear on Monday, April 14th night while leaving a very big contrast in the country. Residents of central and western United States will get a fine view of the “blood moon.” Whoever expected to see the lunar eclipse from within the mentioned boundary, it will be a great shock since the blood moon is set to appear in all its brilliance.

According to Fox News, other parts likely to experience the total lunar eclipse include; Alaska, Hawaii, South America and across North America. Alongside being the first lunar eclipse for 2014, the feature attracts the attention of many scientists and residents in the US. You need to stay alert to capture it passing live although this depends on your location. The feature begins late in the night of Monday proceeding into wee hours of Tuesday. Just pray hard for Mother Nature to take its course for see the total lunar eclipse.

In terms of exact time to expect the blood moons, you can stay alert from 12.53a.m EDT to about 6a.m translating to 0453 to 1000, GMT. There are several ways of noticing the appearance of heavenly bodies including eclipses. On Monday night, there is expected to be a considerable cloudiness situation to much of eastern-third of United States. This will be brought about by a slow-moving cold front that stretches from western New York State all the way to south-southwest and spreading into the central Gulf of Mexico. For residents of Sault Ste-Marie, Mich. to Paducah, Ky. to Baton Rouge, and La., they are likely to experience poor sky conditions.

Generally, this means that there will be a fleeting glimpse of the darkening moon more especially during Tuesday’s predawn hours. In giving a glimpse of hope, people living in inland sections of central and south Florida might be in a position to see the total lunar eclipse. This is courtesy of a thin cloud layer that will enhance visibility of the shady lunar drama. In terms of weather conditions, rain is expected in parts of Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys due to showers and scattered thunderstorms. For snow, it is expected to fall over parts of northwest Ohio and Michigan.

Occurrence of Lunar Eclipse

According to many researchers and scientists, lunar eclipse is believed to occur when a full moon appears between the sun and the earth. At the instance when the moon passes through part or all of the Earth’s shadow, the moon’s bright glow darkens. It then means that the moon is entirely immersed in Earth shadow hence causing scattering of sunlight through the edges of Earth’s atmosphere. Scenarios like this produces moons specially known as “blood moons.” Looking at a lunar eclipse tetrad which scientists have predicted to occur between April 2014 and September 2015, Monday’s appearance becomes the first of four consecutive total eclipses of the moon.
