Dr. Rabab Helal، Professor of Solar and Space science at the National Institute of Astronomy، said the lunar eclipse is not as bloody as some believe.
She added that tonight eclipse is the second one.
It came after the eclipse took place in January،she said.

Dr Helal made clear that the moon disc will appear some reddish because of the reflection of the sun rays from the Earth to the moon.
She pointed out that when the reflection occurs، all the colors of the spectrum disappear except red and orange to the moon and appears as reddish.

It is worth mentioning that tonight lunar eclipse is the longest in the present century
