“BLOOD MOON” ECLIPSE, MARS PAIRING UP FOR ASTRONOMICAL SPECTACLE

 

The longest “blood moon” eclipse in this century will coincide with Mars’ closest approach to Earth in 15 years to offer skygazers a thrilling astronomical double bill on Friday, astronomers say. For about half the world, the moon will be partly or fully in Earth’s shadow from 1:14 p.m. to 7:28 p.m. ET — six hours and 14 minutes in all.
