Here's The Live Feed Of The Century's Longest Lunar Eclipse

The longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century will begin today at 3:30 p.m. what's more, last until 5:15 p.m. EST (12:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. PST). The moon won't ascend in North America until after the eclipse is finished, so nobody in North America will have the capacity to see it, aside from a few people in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico included) and Newfoundland, who will get the finish of the spectacle at moonrise.

This eclipse is only a couple of minutes short of the longest lunar eclipse conceivable. It's the longest lunar eclipse of the century, yet there was a more drawn out one in 2000, so it truly relies upon what your meaning of "century" is (in fact, the 21st century is characterized as 2001 to 2100).

Here's a live feed from timeanddate.com that will start at 2 p.m. EST. Slooh and the Virtual Telescope Project will likewise offer feeds from a few telescopes around the world.


Eclipses happen when the Moon goes into the Earth's shadow. It seems red for a similar reason that nightfalls look red—the Earth's environment scrambles diverse hues in various sums, and more red light than blue light makes it around the Earth to the Moon. The Moon doesn't go behind Earth's shadow each full moon since its orbit is slanted regarding the Earth's circle around the Sun. Eclipses just happen when the Moon, Sun, and Earth are in perfectly positions so the Moon and Sun's orbits converge. More about that here.

What's more, kindly don't call it a "blood Moon" as though it were some sort of spooky sign. It's 2018, and we as a whole recognize what a lunar eclipse is. 

All things considered, any reason is a justifiable reason motivation to take a gander at the Moon, regardless of whether it's simply on a webcast.
