Eclipses aren't just red. Eclipses change different shades depending on the Earths' atmosphere. Some of the colors are orange,gold, and red. Sometimes dust and volcanoes causes it to be dark.
You shouldn't look at an eclipse without protective glasses because they can fry your naked eye. The light exposure of the eclipse can damage the cells of the retina. However, a person who suffered eye damage doesn't know until several hours after an eclipse.
During a Hybrid Solar Eclipse, the earth's curvature brings sections of the eclipse path to the moons umbra. Hybrid eclipses happen rarely because they happen at least once a decade.Another reason they happen rarely is because the moon and suns distance have to be just right.
