A complete lunar eclipse. Which is occurring proper now. And which is able to attain its most at 10 h 59 mn and 13 s. TU — rely an hour extra, for Paris time.
Sadly, this eclipse isn’t seen from mainland France. Due to the Moon already set when it entered the penumbra and never but up when it got here out of the penumbra.
The inhabitants of New Caledonia and French Polynesia will nonetheless be capable to make the most of the coppery pink hue that our Moon will tackle throughout the totality section of the eclipse, which is anticipated to final roughly 1 hour and 25 minutes.
