Lunar Eclipse Spectacle

An eclipse occurs two to five times a year. You can catch one depending on what part of the world you are. Our story for tonight is about Sunday night’s lunar eclipse that Belizeans all across the country were able to witness. We spoke with Angelica Guy at the National Meteorological Service who gave us a brief insight into Sunday night’s occurrence. Here is that interview with some images of the eclipse courtesy a few local photographers.

“Lunar Eclipse or an eclipse on a whole, because they have lunar and solar eclipse, lunar eclipse is more visible with the eyes. You would need special glasses to few a solar eclipses. Eclipses on a whole occur when you have the earth, moon and sun aligning so that they can set up perfectly to block the light from one another, either from the earth or from the moon. According to brief research, eclipses occur very often. Every year they have a few eclipse happening around the world, it just depends on location and how the alignment occurs, and where you are in the world. They also have different eclipse, the partial and the total. Last night we had a total lunar eclipse.”
