Partial moon eclipse in Bratislava

Watch a lunar eclipse live to celebrate Apollo 11 launch day

Tonight’s lunar eclipse coincides with Guru Purnima, Apollo 11 launch date

The Apollo 11 mission blasted off from Florida on July 16, 1969 and saw the first humans touch down on the lunar surface. North America will miss out on the view except for its most eastern points, like Nantucket, parts of ME and Nova Scotia.

The partial lunar eclipse 2019 can be witnessed in regions of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and South America.

For those in the northern hemisphere, the full moon remains low to the horizon at this time of year.

The rare "Half-Blood Thunder Moon" eclipse was a sight to behold: 65 percent of the Moon's face was bathed in red, courtesy of the refracted light more commonly known for colouring the sunset.

Unfortunately, North America will not be able to see the eclipse as it occurs during the daytime with the moon below the horizon.

The whole of this eclipse is not visible from Dunedin; maximum eclipse takes place at 9.30am, which is about an hour after the moon has set.

Full moons are generally referred to as blood moons due to their coppery red tint during a full eclipse so a partial lunar eclipse is a half-blood moon. The little sunlight passing through the earth's atmosphere will light up the moon, turning it a shade red.
