The longest lunar eclipse of this century dazzled skygazers across the globe Friday, coinciding with Mars' closest approach in 15 years in a thrilling celestial spectacle
Although the sky over Bangladesh was not too clear due to clouds, many people of the country saw the record-breaking lunar eclipse early Saturday.
The moon was to be eclipsed by the earth’s shadow for more than three hours, starting on Friday night and then into the early hours of Saturday morning, reports UNB.
The total lunar eclipse takes place when the earth comes between the sun and the moon and covers the moon with its shadow. When this happens, the moon can turn red, earning it the nickname "blood moon."
This time, the earth’s shadow completely devoured the moon, causing the night sky to be pitch black. However, while looking skyward during a solar eclipse is extremely harmful to human eyes, watching a lunar eclipse is harmless.
Widespread monsoon rainstorms and thick clouds hid the moon across much Asia, which should have had a prime view.
Similarly, eager observers who had assembled on cliffs and beaches in the English county of Dorset were left in the dark due to an overcast sky, reports AFP.
Meanwhile frustrated crowds of would-be moon admirers gathered on a hill in cloudy north London consoled themselves by breaking into a rendition of Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler's 1983 hit "Total eclipse of the heart".
Those in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro had more luck, snapping the red moon in the clear night sky with their phones and cameras.
