On the 15th April 2014, we’ll (weather pending!) experience our first total lunar eclipse in 2.5 years!
For Australians and New Zealanders, the eclipse will be in progress at Moonrise – approx 5:28pm AEST when the totality phase will have just started. The further east you are, the more of the eclipse you’ll see.
For more information about the event, including how and where to see it and photograph it, check out the article I wrote for IceInSpace here: Total Lunar Eclipse – 15th April, 2014.
The image above is from the last Total Lunar Eclipse, in December 2011. Check out all of my Lunar Eclipse posts and images.
Lunar Eclipses are completely safe to observe – no filters or glasses needed! Enjoy the view and if you take some photos, feel free to post them on my Facebook Page!
