Eclipse!

Tonight we’ll be at the right side of our planet to watch a rare event in the night sky, the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse.
It is called Super Moon because the moon tonight is at the closest point to Earth due to its elliptical orbit, and it will be seen as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual. In tonight’s eclipse, the Earth gets in between the Sun and the Moon, in such a way that no direct sunlight hits the Moon. It still gets some light through Earth’s atmosphere, that’s why it gains a reddish color. The eclipse starts at 04.07 and lasts until 06.23.
It will be visible quite well from our island, so make your plans accordingly… After all, you are in the most romantic place on earth!
