Blood Moon gears up for big show

Blood Moon gears up for big show

We can see them all in NZ, although for solar eclipses you need to be in the right spot. Friday's blood moon won't be as big.

"However instead of turning black as you might expect, the atmosphere of the Earth bends the light of the sun onto the moon causing it to turn a deep red colour, hence this event's somewhat ominous moniker".

When the moon moved into the conical shadow of the earth, it went from being illuminated by the sun to being dark.

You won't want to miss tonight's blood moon because the next one won't take place until January 2019.

Partly cloudy skies on Friday night should still give us a chance to at least view the full Moon and Mars in close proximity, so it will still be worth a look.

This eclipse will be the longest in this century and is expected to last for more than 100 minutes.

While the eclipse will last 103 minutes, the partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours.

Elías Beltrán aseguró que el caso no esta congelado, se está avanzando y avanzando bien, y no se han parado las investigaciones entorno al caso.

Aside political events, changes in weather patterns including events in the atmosphere like eclipses have also been seen as signs of the end times. It can pass through the outer, fainter shadow, called the penumbra.

At what time will you see the blood moon in India? But there's nothing scary about it. The Earth's shadow appears red because of its atmosphere.

The deepness of the red depends on the particles in the air.

"Part of South America will be able to watch the final stages of the eclipse just after sunset on July 27". Via a free livestream planned by the Virtual Telescope Project. NASA might also cover the live event on their official site. As a European Southern Observatory photo ambassador, a member of The World At Night and the official astrophotographer of the Dark Sky Alqueva Reserve, he specializes in astronomical skyscapes that connect Earth and the night sky.

On July 27 at around 10pm, the red planet Mars will be directly opposite to the Sun and at the same time being at closest distance from the Earth at about 56 million kilometres.

And finally, there will be a conjunction between Mars and the moon.

"There is no reason to believe that "blood moons" foretell doom", said Massey. There isn't anything particularly scientific about it, but it makes for wonderful viewing and photographs.

There's going to be quite a show going on in Space on Friday night as a total lunar eclipse and Mars get together in the night sky.
