There are several parts of Vietnam where the observers will be able to see on Wednesday a total lunar eclipse as the moon draws closest to Earth.
The event, the only total lunar eclipse of 2021, has been dubbed “Super Flower Blood Moon” as the latter draws “super” close to Earth. During the total lunar eclipse, the moon will be on the opposite side of Earth from the sun and completely in the former’s shadow, lending the lunar surface a deep, “blood” red shade.
“Flower” simply refers to the month of May.
Should the sky be clear, people in Vietnam will be able to start seeing part of this super, blood moon around 6 p.m.
According to NASA, the eclipse will start around 3:47 p.m. (Hanoi time).
The partial eclipse will start at 5:44 p.m., while the total eclipse commences at 6:11 p.m. before partially ending at 6:25 p.m. and completely by 7:25 p.m.
But the chance for sky gazers to enjoy the event in southern Vietnam is low since the region is experiencing its rainy season, with weather forecasts predicting rains and a cloudy sky throughout the week.
