We've got a total lunar eclipse this weekend. This happens when the moon, Earth, and sun are aligned, specifically when the moon and sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. This puts the moon in Earth's shadow. However, some daylight still gets through, resulting in a reddish hue reflected off the moon's surface.
How to Watch this weekend's Eclipse in Australia.
- You can’t.
(Meanwhile, a penumbral eclipse, an event arising when the moon is in the lighter penumbral shadow from our planet, will be visible in New Zealand. We have no say in this)
- See the eclipse on an ARSE shirt instead.
- Or try YouTube.
