    Total Eclipse of the Moon tonight [Monday Morning]

    For anyone interested, and doesn’t mind getting up at Two O’clock in the early hours of Monday morning, there is a total eclipse of the moon tonight.
    When the Earth eclipses a full Moon, the direct sunlight is blocked, but the sun's rays still light up the moon. This light has travelled through the Earth's atmosphere first, and sometimes causes the totally eclipsed Moon to look red or brownish.

    Eclipse begins. 01:10
    Moon is getting red. 02:10
    Total Eclipse begins 03:10 completely red moon
    Maximum Eclipse 03:45 Moon is closest to the centre of the shadow.
    Total Eclipse ends 04:25
    End of red moon. 05:30
    Eclipse ends 06:20

    [Times have been rounded and will vary (very slightly, correct to couple of minutes) depending where you are in Ireland.]

    The red eclipse only happens once every 30 years
