Skywatchers looking forward to complete lunar eclipse

Skywatchers looking forward to complete lunar eclipse

If you happen to be in the Eastern Hemisphere, you're in luck.

"If that were true, we'd be in big trouble given the gravitational pulls on Earth, Mars, and our moon!". The total eclipse is scheduled to end at 5.13 a.m.

Below is an interview with Daniel Cunnama, of the South African Astronomical Observatory about tonight's astronomical event.

Blue light is scattered most effectively, and this explains why the sky is blue.

The long duration of this eclipse is partly due to the fact that the moon will make a near-central passage through Earth's umbra. But that's not all.

There's an eclipse of the moon tonight?

I'll tell people to look at the moon on any random night, but tonight, Friday July 27, is when you should really be turning your head toward the sky.

The total eclipse lasted for 1 hour 43 minutes, making it the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

In contrast, New Zealanders will be able to watch the start of the eclipse before sunrise July 28.

There are about four lunar eclipses each year. CBSN, CBS News' 24-hour online streaming platform, will stream coverage featuring reports from CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta from Johannesburg, South Africa, and analysis from scientists and experts starting at 1:00 p.m. ET.

This marks the second total lunar eclipse this year visible from Australia, with the next one predicted for 2021.

Friday night's blood moon will be the longest-lasting so far this century. Picture: AAPThe blood moon peaks behind the Colosseum in Rome. Its associations are more superstitious than scientific.

Unlike like a solar eclipse, it is entirely safe to look directly at a lunar eclipse.

The full moon will pass through the shadow of the Earth and for 103 minutes the moon will turn varying shades of red. For this eclipse, Diego says skywatchers can expect to see a "bright red-orange moon".

Can astronomers learn anything from these events? This can help them understand some of the characteristics of the regolith - the mixture of soil and loose rocks on the surface - and how it changes over time.

Gerst, who recently took part in a Kraftwerk concert from his position on the International Space Station, managed to take a photograph of the eclipse in full sway from the manmade satellite 408 kilometers above earth. The total eclipse will last from 19:30 to 21:13 GMT.
