As many people are contacting me regarding the next moon eclipse. Here is a little sum up of what will happen in one week, during the night from 20th to 21st January.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon. The Earth casts a reddish shadow on the moon. Because of the alignment of the Sun, the Earth and the Moon this can only happen when the moon is full. And it will be visible exclusively during the night. The lunar eclipse last for a few hours. Thus, it is visible from approximately half the world. From the night side of the planet during the eclipse.

Here is the timing of the next lunar eclipse as it will be seen from Gran Canaria Island. Because it hapens during the second half of the night we will not organise any special event for this lunar eclipse at astroGC.
