Tomorrow night, on the 26th of May, the moon will temporarily slip behind the Earth’s shadow, creating a total lunar eclipse!
For the first time since 2018, no matter where you are in Australia, you will be able to see the marvellous astronomical event.
If you’re the kind of person who will forget to look up, don’t worry because we have the complete planner on how to view the eclipse at its best tomorrow!
If you’re in NSW, ACT, VIC, QLD or TAS, the eclipse will begin at 7:45 pm and slipping into totality at 9:11 pm and ending at 9:26 pm. After that, the eclipse will last till 10:52 pm.
If you’re in WA, the eclipse will begin at 5:45 pm, slipping into totality at 7:11 pm and ending at 7:26 pm. After that, the eclipse will last till 8:52 pm.
Finally, for Aussies living in NT / SA, the eclipse will begin at 7:15 pm and slipping into totality shadow starting at 8:41 pm and ending at 8:56 pm. The eclipse will then last till 10:22 pm.
Once the moon slips into totality, the moon will turn a beautiful blood red instead of going dark and black!
