One of the longest ever Lunar eclipse will be seen over Manchester and a depending where you are in the world you could get to see a maximum solar eclipse.

According to here in Manchester we will see the partial eclipse at 7.18am on November 19 depending on the weather.

If you are in the US, Australia and Asia you are to see the maximum eclipse.


According to Wikipedia this will be the longest partial eclipses since 1440 and we wont see anything as long again until the year 2669, so this will be truly a once in a lifetime ecperiences.

If you cannot make this one, or maybe because the weather will be bad here in Manchester you will have a second chance although not as special as the last one, another eclipse will happen on 4 December this time it will be a total solar eclipse and will be visible at 7.33am

Some special out of this world events coming up to enjoy just before Christmas.
