LUNAR ECLIPSE ALERT
 


Blood Super Moon in England

Thanks to an alert from Jack Horlock we are aware there is to be a lunar eclipse on Wednesday 26 May. The timing couldn't be better as the Night Sky images are due on the 3 June.
Jack says:
"There will be a total lunar eclipse on Wednesday. This coincides with the full moon and a time when the moon is very close to us. The eclipse starts at about 11:00 pm and will reach totality at 11:20 pm.
 The moon rises quite early next week so by 11:00 pm it will be high in the sky to the north east (ish) and, if it’s a clear night, easy to see. At totality the moon will go darker, but not black, it will only be lit by the red portion of the spectrum creating a blood moon".
The phenomenon last occurred in New Zealand 40 years ago in 1982. Stardome Observatory & Planetarium astronomy educator John Rowe explained the lunar eclipse will last for five hours, from 8:47pm to 1:49am on the 27th, while the blood moon will only last for 14 minutes from 11:11pm to 11:25pm.
"All Kiwis need to do is look high into the night sky on Wednesday evening and they’ll be treated to a stunning sight.
