A Moon eclipse appears when Earth is located between the Sun and the Moon. Our satellite is hence in the shadow of our planet. However, instead of to be only in the dark, Moon appears in red. Actually, the sun light is split when it goes through the atmosphere of the Earth, as it would be through a prism or through the rain that is making a rainbow. So, thanks to this split of the light, the Moon is in red. The show is very nice and will please everyone who will look at the sky.
From the 27th to the 28th, from 21h29 to 01h28 (French time). The eclipse will be total from 21h30 to 23h23. Disclaimer : The management team of the destination has the possibility to change the opening days and hours without prior communication.
