Awesome simulation showing the path of the eclipse, along with the time...

This total lunar eclipse is fully visible in Belize City. The total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon, as the Moon turns red.

Last night was in the Maya Calender chi'ibal Uh . Day of the total eclipse .

"Everything walks and passes ... because the observation of the plot of the stars has its purpose, from whence,guarding us,the Gods watch us - the Gods that are bound in(the cycles of) the stars ." The Books of Chilam Balam(The Sacred books of the Yucatec Maya,The book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel)

Solar eclipses in the May Dresden Codex :

The Dresden is one of the prehispanic codices that consigns and calculates more completely the eclipses in its time. Of Maya origin, some of their folios (50-58) are dedicated to these astronomical phenomena, from which time and place of manifestation can be found, as well as possible variations. In the lower left part of this sheet an eclipse is represented by two figures, one black and one colorless, representing the Sun and the Moon about to be devoured by a snake.

Belizeans Saw The Blood Moon

Belizeans got to witness a pretty neat astronomical phenomenon last night. It's called a super wolf blood moon. The super means it was closer to earth and appeared slightly larger, the wolf means it was a January full moon, and the blood means it was a full lunar eclipse which left the moon a dark, ruby red for almost an hour.

What caused this weird red glow? Well, during such an eclipse, the Earth, moon and sun align and the Earth blocks the sunlight from reaching the surface of the moon, leaving the lunar surface in shadow. When the central part of the Earth's shadow, covers the moon, the only red scatters of light from the sun reach the moon, casting that orange glow.

For those who had clear skies it was visible all across the America's.
