A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth casts a complete shadow over the Moon called the umbra. Shadow of the Earth It is classified into two parts: umbra, the inner part of the shadow where direct sunlight is completely blocked, and penumbra, the outer part of the shadow Where light is partially blocked.

During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon and the Sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. Many people wonder why a lunar eclipse doesn’t happen every month since the moon orbits the Earth once every 27 days, NASA explains.

The reason is the moon’s orbit The Earth is tilted relative to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. So the Moon usually passes above or below the Earth’s shadow. A lunar eclipse is only possible when the orbits are aligned so that the Moon is directly behind the Earth relative to the Sun.
