Poland is one of the places where the visibility of the phenomenon should be good if the weather permits. Considering the heatwave at the moment, nothing should stand in the way of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. On Friday you will be able to see a reddish-orange moon, the Earth’s satellite coloured as a result of being in the Earth's shadow and the refraction of light through our atmosphere.
The lunar eclipse ought to start around 9:30 PM and will last for 1 hour 43 minutes. The next time you will have a chance to see such a long eclipse will be in… 2123! In general, this rare phenomenon occurs maximum only thrice a year and most recently was visible in Poland in June 2011 and September 2015. At the beginning of 2018 we were also able to spot the Super Blue Moon in Poland, but it did not have the best visibility.
It is a perfect opportunity to plan an outdoorsy evening in Poland, especially due to warm summer weather and this unusual sighting! Remember to choose a spot further from the major city lights – this will increase the visibility of the Moon and other planets, too! Good luck and have a great night!
