The first of four lunar eclipses will take place on April 15th. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the shadow that Earth creates. The totality lasts 1 hour and 18 minutes. Whether you can see it or not depends on whether the moon is visible in your location at that time. The image above gives you some idea of whether you will be able to see it. In the UK the eclipse will occur near to moonset. This will be from 7:07 to 8:25 am UTC. If you are unable to see it don’t worry as the Griffith Observatory will stream the eclipse over the internet.
