See Total Lunar Eclipse From Australia And New Zealand In November
As light reaches the Moon and passes through the dust in the Earth's atmosphere, it turns red. November brings us a spectacular celestial event: the Moon will turn reddish as the Earth passes between it and the Sun.
See the Total Lunar Eclipsefrom Australia and New Zealand in November. Evening people across Australia and New Zealand will be treated to a total lunar eclipse, weather permitting. It’s an opportunity not to be missed, as the next one won’t be visible from the region until 2025.
Read through this article as we give you a guide on how to get the best view of it.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the shadow of the Earth. A partial eclipse occurs when the moon only partially enters the shadow. During a total eclipse, the moon is completely immersed and glows reddish/orange.
The totality period, when the moon is completely immersed in shadow, will last 85 minutes on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
Because the only light reaching the moon's surface will first pass through the Earth's atmosphere, the moon will appear red. The color will be determined by how dusty the Earth's atmosphere is.
It'll be a fantastic experience to share with family and friends, especially since you won't need any special equipment to see it. It's also safe to look at, unlike solar eclipses, which require special precautions when viewing the sun.
The next total lunar eclipse will occur three years later, on March 14, 2025, according to NASA. During that time, however, the world will continue to see partial lunar eclipses.

The lunar eclipse will be visible from anywhere on Earth's night side. Because the Moon rises later than the eclipse begins in some locations, it cannot be seen.
The entire lunar eclipse (partial phase, full phase, partial phase) will be visible from most of North America, New Zealand, many Pacific Ocean islands, the east coast of Australia, most of Japan, the eastern regions of Russia, South Korea, East and Northeast China, and the Norwegian archipelago Svalbard in November 2022.
A lunar eclipse, unlike a solar eclipse, can be observed with the naked eye. A lunar eclipse does not require any special equipment to observe, though binoculars or a telescope will improve the view and the red color.
There will also be several live streams of the event on YouTube. TimeandDate.com will broadcast the entire event live from its mobile observatory in Roswell, New Mexico, and will accept live feeds from San Diego, California, and Perth, Australia. The live stream will begin at 4:00 a.m. EST (1:30 pm IST).
