ECLIPSES THIS MONTH


Solar Eclipses

There are no Solar Eclipses for the UK this month, the next partial eclipse isn't unit 2021! There is however a partial solar eclipse on the 13th of July but we won't be able to see it as it as at 01:00 in the morning.

Lunar Eclipses

WE ARE IN FOR A TREAT THIS MONTH!!!!!!!!!! On the 27th we have a full 'Blood Moon' and a Total Lunar Eclipse!

It will start with a partial eclipse from 19:25 until 20:30 when the total eclipse starts. The Moon doesn't rise in the South East until around 21:30, but don't worry the total eclipse lasts until 22:13. You can then see a partial eclipse until 23:19!

The Moon may turn a red/brown colour during the eclipse. You don't need any equipment to see a Lunar Eclipse, they are best viewed with the naked eye. A great photo opportunity!

If you manage to catch a full moon as it rises above the horizon it will appear to look much bigger.

Please, please let there be clear skies!
