Moscow time, a partial eclipse of the Moon occurred from 9:00 pm to 9:20 pm and lasted for about two hours. He was given great importance not only by astronomers and astrologers, but also ordinary people. Many looked forward to this event, which allowed a different look at all life aspects.
Lunar eclipse of august 7
On the evening of August 7, the night star passed its apogee — the point of its orbit, the most distant from Earth. During the eclipse, the Moon plunged to a quarter of its disk in the earth’s shadow and acquired a burgundy shade, for which it received its name — «Bloody Moon». This is truly a fascinating, frightening and unique spectacle.
The powerful influence of the moon on the human body has not yet been studied. However, the fact that the night star, especially during the eclipse, leaves an imprint on our behavior, desire and feelings is a long-established fact.
