Weather 'near perfect' for lunar eclipse in Marianas – Pacific Daily News

John Larimer posted his shot of the lunar eclipse above Guam on Nov. 8, 2022, on his Instagram profiles @johnnytsunami671 and @jphotography671. The moon appears red during a total lunar eclipse because the earth’s air bends the sun’s light around the earth to shine on the moon, according to Pam Eastlick, who writes the Starry Starry Night column for the Pacific Daily News.

While many Guam residents were focused on the elections on Tuesday, at least some had their eyes to the sky for the lunar eclipse that PDN columnist Pam Eastlick wrote about last Saturday.
“The date for the eclipse was timely: it brought many people across Guam, and across the globe, together to witness the occasion on Election Day, a day notorious for division,” said Landon Aydlett, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service Guam who captured a photo of the event.
“The weather was also near perfect for the Marianas with passing clouds that provided ample viewing opportunity. We look forward to the next total lunar eclipse in 2025, but until then — keep an eye to the sky!”
