A blood red Moon at twilight could be in store for Australian sky watchers tomorrow – weather and unimpeded views to the eastern horizon permitting.

The total lunar eclipse on 15 April is one of two for this year, and will begin before the Moon rises, says Dr Nick Lomb, consultant astronomer and curator, Powerhouse Museum and Sydney Observatory .

While the eclipse will be visible from around the Pacific rim, those in the eastern states of Australia will see it around twilight. People in central Australia will see the tail end of the eclipse, while those in Western Australia will miss out altogether.

Lomb says a twilight total lunar eclipse is quite rare.

“Just as the Sun is setting, the Moon will be rising, and it will be totally eclipsed, which should be fairly spectacular,” he says.

But because the eclipse will happen so low in the sky, to see it you will need to make sure there are no trees, hills or buildings in the way.

“The essential thing is to have a really clear view towards the eastern horizon.”

The Moon will already be eclipsed when it rises at 5:28 pm AEST, but at that stage the sky will still be quite bright, warns Lomb
