Best spot for Blood Moon Gazing

By Kawe Roes

New Zealanders in the south will have the best chance of seeing tomorrow morning’s total lunar eclipse.

While the higher the vantage point the better the views, best spots will be central Otago, Canterbury and the lower North Island.

The total eclipse will be most visible in our skies in the south-west between 6.20am and 7.20am.  It is the longest lunar eclipse this century.
