Total Lunar Eclipse of 2021

A total lunar eclipse is to be visible across the Australian night sky tonight as the sun, earth and moon align in space. The phenomena often referred to as ‘super moon’ or ‘blood moon’ is the result of a total lunar eclipse.

Although the astronomical event is not rare and last occurred in 2019, the lunar eclipse could only be seen from Australia in 2018 due to the moon’s uneven orbit . However, the eclipse that is visible across Australia begins to set and end at different times depending on location.

To find out what this phenomena is and where to be, listen to our conversation with curator and astronomer Dr Andrew Jacob from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences – Sydney Observatory.
