Blood Moon Over Cabo

Date Published:

Watch out for the total lunar eclipse today and the phenomenon known as a “blood moon”.

According to the website of Sky and Telescope magazine, the eclipse will be brief and the first shadow on the moon can be seen around 02:35 pm Central Time Mexico , while the eclipse can be seen at 4:34 hours.

The lunar eclipse will last about 12 minutes and some sites astronomy was broadcast live via the Internet , according to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

This eclipse will be the third in a series of four total lunar eclipses, the first took place on April 15, 2014, the second was in September 2014 and the last will be the September 28, 2015 .

A lunar eclipse can be seen without the need for special protection or binoculars, since the phenomenon does not affect the eyes unlike a solar eclipse.

For a total lunar eclipse to happen, the moon must be full, which means it is directly opposite the sun, with Earth in between. The eclipse happens when the moon moves into the shadow cast by the sun shining on Earth.

A special treat: Most of the moon's glow shows some shade of intense orange or red, thus the "blood" moon nickname.

"That red light shining onto the moon is sunlight that has skimmed and bent through Earth's atmosphere: that is, from all the sunrises and sunsets that ring the world at any given moment," said Alan MacRobert of Sky and Telescope magazine.
