Astronauts Capture The Blood Moon From Space, And The Photos Are Breathtaking

The eclipse is set to occur during North America's daytime, but will be visible in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The moon passed in front of the sun, casting a 70-mile-wide shadow. The moon will begin to appear reddish around 18:24 GMT as it moves into the main part of the Earth's shadow.

Although no longer directly illuminated by the Sun, the moon still catches light filtered and bent by the Earth's atmosphere. But now, the weather in some areas is of heavy rainfall.

"The rim of the earth would be glowing because light is being scattered by the earth's atmosphere".

"What we're seeing is essentially all the sunrises and sunsets on the Earth, dramatically projected onto the surface of the moon", Australian National University astronomer Brad Tucker told AAP on Friday.

People gathered at 8am on Saturday to watch a rare celestial event known as a selenelion - where an eclipsed moon and the sun can be seen in the sky at the same moment.

How often does a blood moon occur? Thus, there is a possibility that the clouds may hide your view of the eclipse.

Our constant companion will also be at the farthest point on its orbit from Earth, making its movement across the sky slower from our perspective, thus spending longer in the dark. According to NASA, India is one of the best places to watch the total lunar eclipse.

"During a very dark eclipse the moon may be nearly invisible".

"If you want a close-up view of the moon as it turns red, a pair of binoculars is helpful", Royal Astronomical Society said. Lunar eclipses are rare, an area will get 3 in a year at the most and with such a spectacular celestial line up this time, one should definitely find time to observe it.

The next time a similarly extended eclipse will happen again is in 2025.

Sydneysiders were not disappointed with the eclipse has thousands woke early across the city to take in the spectacle.

Mars is reaching its opposition, when it's in alignment on the opposite side of the Earth and the sun.

Image copyright Science Photo Library Image caption At its closest approach, Mars will be 54.6 million km from Earth. This will make the Red Planet appear slightly larger, but most notably brighter in the sky.

While Mars will be overhead for people in central Chile, South African and Australia, it will be low in the southern sky for those watching in the United States and Europe. Next week on Tuesday, be on the lookout for Mars. Experts estimate that Mars' brightness will persist for several weeks. When it does, the moon will turn a burnt orange color, as it did during January's Super Blue Blood Moon.
