The News Minute | October 8, 2014 | 02:40 pm IST As you read this somewhere in India or across the world, the sun, moon and the earth are doing what they do best - go round and round and create magic as we go about our daily lives. This day, however, calls for special mention because of the occurence of the rarely occuring Blood Moon sighting across the globe.  Only the second time to happen this year, the total lunar eclipse will make the moon glow like a rusty, red ball known as the 'Blood moon'. For those who cannot watch the breathtaking views of the moon glow fiery red, NASA put out a live stream for people to have a better view of the astronomical delight.  Cloudy outside? Daylight? We have a live stream view of the #eclipse http://t.co/5frjTxM9a9 #bloodmoon #lunareclipse pic.twitter.com/6jXHKYBhO1 — NASA (@NASA) October 8, 2014 NASA put out a video explaining the science behind how a total lunar eclipse occurs.
