On Tuesday the 8th of November 2o22, Australians will be treated to a rare total lunar eclipse.

It will be the last chance for stargazers to see the moon turn blood red, before the next occasion in late 2025.

The rare astronomical event occurs when the Earth and moon align; immersing the lunar body in the Earth’s shadow.
