    TONIGHT!! Total Lunar Eclipse!

    Ben Domensino, Friday July 27, 2018 - 10:40 EST

    The second total lunar eclipse of 2018 will occur this weekend across Australia, painting the moon red during the early hours of Saturday morning.

    This weekend's spectacle will be the second total lunar eclipse of 2018, following the colloquially named 'uper blue blood moon' earlier in the year. Prior to these two events, the last total lunar eclipse occurred in 2015.
    A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes completely within Earth's shadow - called the umbra - shielding it from direct sunlight. Instead of turning black as it passes through Earth's shadow, the moon's face takes on a reddish glow, which is why it's referred to as a 'blood moon'.

    Watching the Tour De France and getting up at 5am are incompatible activities.

    Managed to see the finish of Le Tour stage and get up to see the moon. It was pretty amazing. Took a decent photo but now have to get camera to talk to computer. Ahh
