Astrologers predict a blood moon will occur on November 8 and will be visible in skies across the country.
A blood moon occurs when the sun, Earth and moon align in a perfect way, causing the moon to pass into the planet’s shadow.

Last year, a super blood moon – caused by a combination of a super moon, a total lunar eclipse and a pink moon event – was visible across Australian skies.

In Queensland, you’ll be able to see the blood moon between 7:09 and 10:49pm, with the total eclipse taking place between 8:16 and 9:41pm.
