Super moon, blood moon and a total moon eclipse

  • Supermoon, blood moon and a total lunar eclipse can be seen in the night on Monday 28th of September 2015 between 4.00 and 5.30.

    A very special act. Lastly, there was the 1982. The super-moon is copper-red and is much larger than usual, because it is particularly close to our planet and is correspondingly large. The red glow comes from long-wave light scattered by the Earth's atmosphere into the shadow cone. This is a special fascination. Just looking out of the window towards the southwest can be enough. Set the alarm clock to 4.30. Main thing, the weather plays with. The best thing would be a clear sky.


    A total lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon lie in a row, so that the earth keeps the light of the sun and the moon is in the shadow of the earth. The full moon is still so close to 356 880 kilometers on this earth night that it can cause spring floods and tensions in the earth's crust. With binoculars you can also see the weak stars at which the moon passes. Next total lunar eclipse will only be observed again in three years Germany - 27th of July 2018.


    Lot of fun by observing :)
