What is a red moon? When the moon is fully eclipsed by the earth, the shadow blocks out most of the solar light except for a little bit. This little bit only represents part of the solar spectrum, and reflects back into the eyes of humans as red. The end result is that when looking up at the sky, the moon appears to be a coppery red or rust color.

When do red moon occur? Typically during a total lunar eclipse which is when the sun, moon, and earth align, which occurs every couple of years. There will be a total lunar eclipse on Dec 21, 2010.

Does the red moon have an effect on werewolves? Well, some say it does, although this is a hotly debated topic. Those who say it does claim it makes the werewolf’s senses stronger and more powerful.
