Total Lunar Eclipse to be Seen from Shenzhen

A total lunar eclipse will be visible from Shenzhen if the skies above the city remain clear. Though late into the evening spectators should be able to catch the moon in full eclipse for a total of 41 minutes, the longest since the last eclipse was spotted in the year 2000.

According to the Scientific Officer of the Hong Kong Observatory, Mr Woo Wang-chun, the moon will not completely dissappear but have a copperish-red glow surrounding it due to sunlight refracted from the Earth’s atmosphere back onto the moon.

The eclipse will begin at 1:23 am and end at 5:03 am, though moon-gazers can catch the full eclipse from 3:22 am for a total of 41 minutes.
