Where is it viewable? I’ve heard the west coast, and the east coast. And how does a Lunar eclipse work? Does the Earth move so the Sun is between Earth and Moon? Thanks.
West coast of the United States. 6:00 am PST
REALLY over-dramatic video:
“… lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes behind the Earth so that the Earth blocks the Sun’s rays from striking the Moon. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend upon the Moon’s location relative to its orbital nodes. The most recent total lunar eclipse occurred on June 15, 2011; it was a central eclipse, visible over Europe and South America after sunset, over Africa and most of Asia, and Australia before sunrise. It lasted 100 minutes. The previous total lunar eclipse occurred on December 21, 2010, at 08:17 UTC.
Unlike a solar eclipse, which can only be viewed from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of the Earth. A lunar eclipse lasts for a few hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts for only a few minutes at any given place, due to the smaller size of the moon’s shadow. …”
Just ignore the troll who is trying to shock you into reacting just so he can feed his own ego.
From the mid-west, you can see the totality at least for some time before the moon sets. The further west you are than that, the longer you’ll see it. It will be just before sunrise. That’ll separate the men from the boys.
The moon circles the Earth every 29.5 days. When it’s full moon, the moon has the Earth between itself and the sun. Sometimes, the moon is exactly behind the Earth (that is, not slightly “above” or “below”), so the Earth’s shadow is cast on it. It would be most accurate to say, the moon moves so the Earth is directly between it and the sun.
West coast or east coast of WHAT? This is an international forum, so you really need to tell us WHERE you’re located when you ask a question like this. This particular eclipse is mainly visible in Australia and eastern Asia. In North America it’s best in Alaska but goes rapidly downhill as you go south and east from there. Where I live, in Ontario Canada, the Moon will set before the main umbral eclipse even begins.
this well-known paragraph grew to become into further after my preliminary reaction. The photograph voltaic eclipse has been on my ideas recently so as that’s what I promptly examine out of your question. I now see which you have been asking relating to the LUNAR eclipse. Sorry, i’ve got not got any information on the lunar eclipse yet i’m going to leave my reaction right here, besides, considering you could desire to nonetheless discover it thrilling. extremely, the eclipse already occurred. It occurred on July twenty first, u . s . time. It occurred July twenty 2nd India time, that’s the longitude that grew to become into waiting to be sure it. It occurred in a prior due degree of maximum cancers so i does not assume it to do lots for an early Scorpio like your self, except you have yet another planet in previous due maximum cancers. to be sure if something occurred for you, i could think of roughly what you began that day and notice if it produced any fruit for you later. the sole concern that i’ve got heard is that sturdy issues you do will substitute into sturdy for you and undesirable issues which you do would be surprisingly undesirable for you. I extremely have a maximum cancers moon it is minutes from the eclipse. My husband has a prior due maximum cancers sunlight. we’ve been searching for a sparkling condominium for a pair of month now. We observed a place on the twenty first and loved it. After many issues looking an condominium, this one occurred to worked out and we signed the hire 2 days in the past.
West coast. Best place is Hawaii and Alaska
The Earth moves between the sun and the moon
No. That would kill us all.
