If the Moon is visible where you are right now, go look!! It should be a lovely deep red, illuminated not by direct sunlight but by the light of all the sunrises and sunsets of the Earth while in its shadow. #LunarEclipse2021
If you CAN’T see the Moon, I highly recommend browsing the hashtag #LunarEclipse2021 or #LunarEclipse and admiring everyone’s excited cell phone photos, they are delightful 🙂
This is one of my favorite weird optical illusions in astronomy. When it’s fully eclipsed, the Moon suddenly really looks 3D! #LunarEclipse2021 #LunarEclipse

Last #LunarEclipse of 2020 coming up on 30 Nov 2020 (Kartik Poornima) during 13:04 - 17:22 IST with peak at 15:04 hrs. Mercury will also enter Anuradha on this day. Thus, 5 out of Navagrahas of Vedic Jyotish will transit in Nakshatras reflecting Western direction.
Mercury entering Anuradha is not a transit to worry about. It will only start setting things in flow. Problems will arise when Mercury comes within 1° of Ketu first, then Saturn and finally Jupiter.

THREAD 1 : 5th June 2020 - LUNAR ECLIPSE

Eclipses hold a crucial place in our religion and astrology. We are experiencing a penumbral Lunar eclipse on June 5. You may wonder what is penumbral lunar eclipse.

There are 3 types of lunar eclipse-
full, partial and penumbral. Image
2/ #Penumbraleclipse is observed when earth comes in between sun and moon. A penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are imperfectly aligned. The Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from reaching the Moon with the outer part of its shadow called
3/ the penumbra. In reality, the penumbra is much fainter than the actual core of the Earth’s shadow. Therefore, it is hard to distinguish and so a penumbral eclipse looks almost like a normal Full Moon and it is also called strawberry eclipse. The penumbral eclipse is not

Wow >>> reddit.com/r/space/commen… I've just checked in PS & the flashes from the 2 different feeds are in *exactly* the same location. Given there was *also* a visual obs I'd bet good money this was indeed a meteoroid impact on the Moon during the #lunareclipse h/t @AwesomeAstroPod
So (assuming the time-stamp on the timeanddate.com feed was accurate) anyone who was videoing the eclipse at 04:41UT might want to check their footage for another data point! The flashes in the feeds occurred close to crater Byrgius (west of Mare Humorum). #lunareclipse
Update on the potential #lunareclipse meteoroid impact: here's *another* video (different observing site to the 2 other feeds) showing a flash @ the same spot west of Mare Humorum: Looks increasingly likely to me that this is a real event. cc @chrislintott

Unprocessed view hot off the scope: 50 minutes into lunar eclipse, still in penumbral phase. Now is a good time to look outside :-)
(I'm in some kind of hell now where I have to adjust the telescope tracking once per minute for the next 5 hours since it is such a tight fit on the sensor)
Hot off the scope: Ten minutes into partial phase. Brightness stretched to more clearly show the circular edge of Earth's core shadow #LunarEclipse

If you can see the Moon tonight, over the next few hours it’s going to start looking pretty awesome. This #LunarEclipse starts really getting going a few minutes from now and gets to maximum in a little over an hour. Timing info & visibility maps: timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/… A map of eclipse visibility. Basically the entire half of the globe centered around Cuba.
A total #LunarEclipse is when the Moon, Earth, and Sun line up perfectly enough that the Moon is entirely in the Earth’s shadow. Here’s a handy graphic:
When the Moon starts to enter the Earth’s shadow, it’ll look like part of the Moon is going dark, in contrast to the section just outside the shadow, still brightly lit. But when it’s ENTIRELY in the shadow, you’ll see something else, much cooler. #LunarEclipse

Fellow wrong-side-of-planet sky-watchers, rejoice!
From the NASA livestream right now. #LunarEclipse Deep red darkened Moon with “Al Sadeem Observatory” written in upper left and NASA logo in upper right
Whether or not you can see the eclipsed Moon where you are, when you next see the Moon, check out the very bright reddish dot near it — that’s Mars! #LunarEclipse
