Total Lunar Eclipse and Blue Moon

Total Lunar Eclipse and a Blue Moon

Wed, 31th January

Total Lunar Eclipse and a Blue Moon
NAS members will be below the Obelisk from around Sunset. Eclipse starts around 10pm and ends around 1am.

A total lunar eclipse has the immediate daylight totally hindered by the earth's shadow. The main light observed is refracted through the earth's shadow. This light looks red for the same reason that the nightfall looks red, because of rayleigh scattering of the more blue light. Because of its rosy shading, a total lunar eclipse is now and again called a blood moon.

Dissimilar to a solar eclipse, which can be seen just from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be seen from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. A lunar eclipse lasts for a couple of hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts for just a couple of minutes at any given place, because of the smaller size of the Moon's shadow. Also not at all like solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to see with no eye assurance or special precautions, as they are dimmer than the full moon.
