Missed the super wolf blood moon? Stunning photos, here

Bright skies tonight for what could be a spectacular lunar eclipse

It is a type of lunar eclipse, during which the moon appears to glow red while seeming brighter and closer to earth than normal.

Surrounded by stars, the eclipsed moon turns red over Mount Baker.

NASA estimates there will be 85 total lunar eclipses this century.

A view of the moon during a total eclipse on Monday.

The so-called "super blood wolf moon" slips into Earth's dark umbral shadow during a total lunar eclipse behind the Tours's cathedral on January 21, 2019 in France.

The total part of the eclipse runs for just over an hour, from 4:41am to 5:43am tomorrow (Monday) morning.

Prince Philip warned by United Kingdom police for driving without seatbelt
Fairweather has been left feeling "overwhelmed" by the experience of the crash, especially as it involved the Duke of Edinburgh . She claims Prince Philip told a passerby that the sun had "dazzled" when he crashed into her Kia on Wednesday at 2:30pm.

"The Sun's red light is scattered much less by air, and is bent by Earth's atmosphere in a process called refraction, travelling all the way through it to light up the Moon's surface".

It's a rare event when a total lunar eclipse is visible on so many parts of the Earth's land mass, as is the case on Monday.

In the Cayman Islands, the partial eclipse began at 10:33 p.m., with the total eclipse beginning at 11:41 p.m. The duration of the "totality" phase - when the moon ws completely engulfed in Earth's shadow - -was 62 minutes.

North and South America will finally see a blood moon again on May 16, 2022 (as will Europe and Africa). We'll also see solar eclipses, which occur when the moon passes in front of the sun from the Earth's perspective.

Because, of course, lunar eclipses aren't the only celestial shows in the next few years. A "ring of fire" annular eclipse - which happens when the moon doesn't quite cover the entire sun, leaving a ring around the edges - will take place on December 26 this year in Saudi Arabia, India, Sumatra and Borneo.
