SALAT AL AYAT FOR LUNAR ECLIPSE, SUPERMOON and BLOOD MOON
Tomorrow, 21st January, 2019, in the early hours of the #morning
, there will be a #total #lunar
eclipse visible from the UK. A lunar eclipse occurs when the #Earth lies directly between the #Sun and the #Moon , and the Moon lies in the #shadow
of the Earth.
TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE
In a total lunar eclipse the Sun, Earth and Moon lie in a straight line. The Moon usually turns darkish red because it is #illuminated
that has passed through the Earth’s #atmosphere
and has been bent back towards the Moon by refraction
Tomorrow, 21st January, 2019, the Moon will be at its closest point to Earth in its #orbit
. This will make the Moon appear slightly larger than usual (can appear larger by up to 7%). This phenomenon is dubbed a “supermoon”
A lunar eclipse is sometimes referred to as a “Blood Moon” because of the way the Moon can turn a deep coppery red colour during its eclipse
