The Total Eclipse

Whatever your plans may be this Friday night (27th July), make the time to witness something spectacular. It may not be ideal to take binoculars along for a night out with your dress and heels but that’s fine – scientists have explained why they may not make a big difference in helping you enjoy what’s to come.

If your diary is empty, get this in there: lunar eclipse viewing with wine and a picnic – and get ready to charge your gems to the max! In fact, it’s expected to be the longest lunar eclipse of the century. For this reason, astronomy enthusiasts have had Friday night’s events in their diaries for weeks.

Total Eclipse to Blood Moon photographs

Do your research for when the eclipse is expected to begin in your country, as for those in the UK it’s expected that we will miss the start of it due to the Moon still being below the horizon – the line where the Earth’s surface and the sky appear to meet. We should be able to see the eclipse from around 9pm when the Moon rises but research your local area to be sure you won’t miss a second of the phenomenon.

Recharge your mind and your gems

Before leaving your house to take time away from the stresses of life to watch Mother Nature’s show, put all of your gemstones by a window or, if possible, outside to let them soak up the recharging benefits of the full moon. They will appreciate the show as much as you will!

You only need wine – not goggles!
There is no need to wear goggles or filters to watch a blood moon as is essential when viewing a solar eclipse. “It is safe to watch with the naked eye,” explains astronomer Tom Kerss, of the Royal Observatory Greenwich. “You could use a telescope but, to be frank, it will be just as dramatic to watch it without aids as the red moon slowly rises in the sky over Britain and the shadow of the Earth passes from its surface.”

So grab a picnic blanket, your drink of choice, some tasty snacks and a fully charged phone or camera and go and enjoy the show.
