Stargazers from Berlin to Australia were treated to a spectacular partial lunar eclipse on Tuesday evening, into the early hours of Wednesday, as 45 percent of the full moon's face went dark. The eclipse occurred as the world marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission when man took first steps on the moon. The next partial lunar eclipse is not expected until 19 November 2021.
A partial lunar eclipse will be visible tonight over Africa, the Middle East and parts of Europe. Stargazers in the UK should see the moon appear red at around 22:30 BST, provided the skies are clear. The lunar eclipse coincides with the Apollo 11 mission lifting off from Cape Kennedy on this day in 1969. The astronauts landed on the moon four days later.
A rare “super blood wolf moon” combined three naturally occurring phenomena on January 21st, with a total lunar eclipse, a tint of red from the sun’s rays and at the same time, the moon was at its closest to the earth. People from Brighton to Buenos Aires enjoyed the rare sight, with the next one happening in 2021.
Skygazers are set for a treat.
Thunderstorms are on the way, and they bring clouds.
Preparation is everything.
Look to the skies on the 27th July.
Eclipses follow a pattern of sorts in that they occur in 'sets' of a pair of opposing zodiac signs, almost six months apart and usually over a two year period. As above, so below, and over the course of the set the themes of consciousness of the traits and life areas governed by the eclipse zodiac signs plays out in both our lives and the lives of those around us.
