Follow This Weekend’s Lunar Eclipse Live From Mount Teide

September 25, 2015

Many people around the world will be able to see an orangey red, big supermoon that will be covered during the total lunar eclipse taking place during Sunday night and the early hours of Monday 28th September (local time), but Tenerife is one of the best vantage points.

The supermoon which happens once every year, will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter in the sky that evening, but  as if that wasn’t already a spectacular sight, this eclipse is the fourth and final of the  ”blood moons,” a phrase that has become popular to describe the four lunar eclipses we have seen in 2014 and 2015. Scientifically this is known as a “lunar tetrad.”

Another supermoon eclipse will not occur again until 2033

The Canarian SiempreWeb company are to be responsible for the HD cameras and streaming via the internet to cover the coming  lunar eclipse.

The 360 degreesMobotix cameras will be located at the Mount Teide cable car platform, an IP camera set up at one of the highest altitudes in Spain, exactly 3,600 meters.
Four Mobotix cameras will allow perfect view of the total lunar eclipse and are also capable of recording audio, so the feeling of actually being on the peak of Teide will be even greater.
The broadcast can be followed live at www.sky-live.tv and www.elteide.es the eclipse starts at 1.11am on the 28th September, peaking at 3.47 am, before ending at 6.22 am
