PARIS - Fifty years to the day since mankind launched the first mission to set foot on it, the Moon is set to treat Earthlings to a partial lunar eclipse on Tuesday. Britain's Royal Astronomical Society said in a statement the event would be visible from parts of northern Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Western Australia. Lunar eclipses happen when the Earth gets aligned in between the Sun and the Moon. Tuesday's eclipse should see around 60 percent of the Moon's visible surface obscured by the Earth's shadow, known as the umbra, the RAS said. Best viewing conditions in Britain will be around 2230 (2130 GMT), it added. Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses can be seen by the naked eye without risk of damage. Experts recommend those seeking to take photos of the phenomenon use a tripod. More than 400,000 people worked on NASA's Apollo 11 mission, which launched on July 16, 1969 and put the first humans on the Moon four days later. … [Read more...] about Lunar eclipse marks Moon landing’s 50th anniversary
This weekend, a total lunar eclipse will give skywatchers a chance to see the moon turn a dull red as it slips into Earth's shadow. The eclipse, which will occur overnight on Jan. 20-21, will be the first lunar eclipse of the year and the last total lunar eclipse until 2021. It will be visible in North and South America as well as parts of western Europe and Africa. January's full moon is sometimes dubbed a "wolf moon" in the folklore tradition because it occurs at a time of year when hungry wolves howled outside villages. And since the moon will be at its closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit around our planet this weekend, it will be a "supermoon." As a result of these special cases — and because lunar eclipses are also known as "blood moons" — some are calling this eclipse a "super blood wolf moon." During a lunar eclipse, sunlight falling on the surface of the moon is blocked by Earth as it passes between the sun and the moon. As the shadow starts to fall on … [Read more...] about 2019 lunar eclipse: 5 things to know about the ‘super blood wolf moon’
