Heads up, if you miss tonight’s Blood Moon, unfortunately the next lunar eclipse won’t come around until 2025.

It occurs when the Earth moves between the moon and the sun, with all three in alignment it causes a shadow to be cast on the moon.

While the eastern states reckon they’re getting the best view… they’re just gloating because it seems we’re getting a great view too.

In WA, the main event starts around 6.43pm, with the full eclipse lasting until 7.41pm before the show wraps up at 8.49pm and in bed by 9pm, perfect.

We’re also told to look out for the ‘moon illusion’ – where your brain is tricked and the moon looks much bigger when it’s low on the horizon compared to when it’s high in the sky.
