The only lunar eclipse of this year and next supermoon was a bonus.
On Sunday & # 39; at night, the moon, the Earth and the sun prepared to create the eclipse, which was visible in the North and in America the & # 39; South, where the sky was clear. There will not be another until 2021.
It was also the first supermoon year, when the full moon appears slightly larger and brighter thanks to its position somewhat closer.
All Eclipse took more than three hours. The totality – when the moon completely bathed in the shadow of the World – lasted an hour. During a total lunar eclipse of, the eclipsed, or blood, the moon becomes red sun that radiates from the Earth's atmosphere.
Besides the Americas, can be observed all lunar extravaganza, weather permitting, all the way across the Atlantic to parts of Europe.
