ARE YOU READY FOR THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE THIS YEAR ?


Are you ready for one hour of darkness today ? At exactly  6:25am EST (11.25am BST) time the moon will pass into Earth’s shadow, making it appear red which will last about an hour and, owing to the moon’s position in its orbit, will be 5.3 per cent larger than the previous blood moon on 15 April.

 

This total lunar eclipse will occur on October 8, 2014. It will be visible from North America, parts of Australia, China and Japan. Parts of South Asia, and Eastern Europe will see a partial eclipse. The penumbral phase of the eclipse will begin at 8:17 AM (08:17) UTC on October 8, 2014 and the eclipse will end at 1:32 PM (13:32) UTC the same day. The Moon will be totally eclipsed (totality) for about 58 minutes.

A ‘blood moon’ will be visible across large parts of parts of North America early tomorrow morning.
