Malaysians, rejoice! For today (November 8 – Tuesday), a Full Moon Eclipse will be visible.

This phenomenon is happening 8.5 days before the moon is at its furthest position (apogee) from the earth, at a distance of 404,923km.

According to a Facebook post by the Malaysian Space Agency (MYSA), this Full Moon Eclipse can be seen from Asia, Australia, North and South America as well as parts of Northern and Eastern Europe.

They shared, “This Full Moon Eclipse is a central lunar eclipse, which is a lunar eclipse that occurs when the Moon’s disk passes through the axis of the Earth’s umbra shadow, which is in the middle of the Earth’s umbra shadow.

“A central lunar eclipse is a total eclipse that has a high umbra magnitude value, a long duration and a low gamma value. The magnitude of the umbra this time is 1.3607 and the Gamma value is 0.2570 with a maximum total eclipse duration of 85.7 minutes.”

You’re probably wondering, what time should you prepare yourself for the stellar show? 

Well, in Malaysia, the phenomenon of the Full Moon Eclipse is expected to start at 16:02 (4:02pm) and will end at 21:56 (9:56pm). Unfortunately, the beginning of the penumbra and the partial eclipse phase will not be seen due to it occurring when the moon is below the horizon.

“Malaysians have the opportunity to witness the phenomenon when the moon begins to rise in the eastern horizon when it begins to experience a full eclipse phase for residents of Sabah and Sarawak, while for most areas in the Peninsular, the phenomenon will only be visible during the maximum eclipse phase until the penumbra eclipse phase ends at 21:56:08,”

“Therefore, observers are advised to be in an area that does not have obstacles in the east, such as a high area or a beach facing east so that they can witness the eclipse as early as possible,” they added.

If you have a great view of the Full Moon Eclipse, don’t forget to take lots of pictures and share them with us!
