Get ready for a rare and wonderful cosmic phenomenon - the Super blood moon. Some parts of the world will have the opportunity to experience the 26 May a total lunar eclipse. However, you will be able to watch this phenomenon wherever you are thanks to livestreams.
Lunar eclipse is the phenomenon in which the Moon passes just behind the Earth in its shadow. Unlike the solar eclipse, in the lunar eclipse you can look directly at the moon with the naked eye. There are many names for this month's total lunar eclipse. Some of them are Super flower blood moon (super blood moon) and Blood flower supermoon.
Total lunar eclipses tend to give the moon a reddish tinge. This is the place that is metaphorically called "blood". The Farmers Almanac assigns different names to full moons for each month. The May Moon is commonly called "the moon of flowers". This Moon will be one of the closest to Earth on its elliptical path, which will make it look a little brighter and larger than usual. This is the reason for the designation "supermoon".
NASA says the eclipse will be visible in parts of the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and East Asia. Residents of Hawaii and Alaska will have the opportunity to experience the phenomenon, but even more will enjoy much of the western US.
The viewing guide of Timeanddate.com allows you to enter the time of your location and will tell you to what extent you will be able to see the eclipse.
The Virtual Telescope Project will provide a livestream from 3 p.m. Pacific time on May 26.
Timeanddate.com will host its own global streaming event, in collaboration with astronomers from Australia, Hawaii, California and Arizona. The flow starts at 2:30 a.m. Pacific time.
However, if you want to sleep or for some reason can not watch the lunar eclipse live, you will be able to watch it at another time.
