Feeling all the feels
Over several hours, the Moon will pass through Earth’s shadow, causing it to darken and usually become reddish in colour.
An eclipse occurs when the moon appears darkened as it passes into the Earth’s shadow, with Earth being located between the moon and the sun.
The last total lunar eclipse seen in the UK took place on January 21, 2019.
It was referred to as a Super Wolf Blood Moon – because it was a Super Moon, a total eclipse and a full moon, with the given name Wolf.
The red colour comes from sunlight filtering through Earth’s atmosphere – a ring of light created by all the sunrises and sunsets happening around our planet at that time.
The UK hasn’t experienced a total lunar eclipse since two years ago, and unfortunately it won’t see this one.
We’ll have to wait until 2022 for that – it’s claimed the next total lunar eclipse visible from the UK will be on 16 May, 2022 and will last for 41 minutes.
The best places to see the celestial phenomenon in 2021 include Australia, parts of the western US, western South America and Southeast Asia .
Not only is this a spectacular event to witness, it’s also extremely important astrologically whether you can see it or not.
We’ll all be up in our feelings so let’s take a look at how each sign will be affected.
