This month, the most special astronomical wonder of this century will be staged in the Australian night sky!
Mars is against the sun!
1. Total lunar eclipse
The scene that slowly appeared again
The whole process takes up to 5 hours and 38 minutes!
Partial lunar eclipse-That is, the time that the moon gradually disappears and gradually appears-continues3 hours and 55 minutes;
Total lunar eclipse——That is, the time when the moon is completely blocked by the earth——1 hour and 43 minutes
The reason for this is because during a lunar eclipse, although the earth blocks the light from the sun on the moon, there is still some light that can bypass the edge of the earth and refract to the moon.
5:30 am: The moon is the reddest
6:21 am: total lunar eclipse
7:13 am: The total lunar eclipse ends
Can be seen all over the world!
2. Mars opposes the sun
In other words, when the time comes,
The so-called "major opposition" refers to the opposition that occurs when the earth is near the aphelion and Mars is around the perihelion.
And you can see it all night!
