The full moon will be eclipsed on Wednesday


The full moon will be eclipsed by next Wednesday especially the Mediterranean coast and Balearic Islands, is one of the best places in the world to observe the complete cycle.

the peak of the eclipse will occur at 22.14 hours (GMT).

The duration of total eclipse will be 1 hour and 41 minutes, although the entire process, including in it the stages before the eclipse itself (known as partial phase penumbral phase), will last more than five hours.

The Earth will stand that day between the sun and the moon and the shadow of the blue planet completely hide the moon.  unlike solar eclipses, the moon does not pose any risk to the eye and therefore do not require for observation with the naked eye from the use of any filters.

The phenomenon will be visible across Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. In Spain, the area where better observe the complete cycle will be in the far east (Mediterranean coast and Balearic Islands) and the rest of the peninsula and the Canary Islands, except the beginning, the whole process will be the total eclipse .




Each year there are four to seven eclipses, including the Sun and the Moon, and that normally accompany such a way that one occurs after half a lunar cycle after the other.

 In this case, Wednesday's lunar eclipse occurs between two partial eclipses of the sun: the eclipse of June 1, which was visible in East Asia and the northern extremes of North America and Europe, and the eclipse of July 1, which will be visible in the southern Indian Ocean and Antarctica.

This year, there will be two total lunar eclipses, the next Wednesday and Dec. 10, but no total solar eclipse, although it four partial: January 4, 1 June, 1 July and 25 November.
