Watch the Lunar Eclipse at The Ritz-Carlton, Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert
Join us this Friday and witness the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century on a big screen in the exclusive Stargazing platform surrounded by the dunes at The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Wadi Desert.
The eclipse will last approximately 103 minutes and it will be the first central lunar eclipse since June 15, 2011. During this amazing celestial event, the full moon will pass through Earth’s shadow for around 6 hours and is likely to turn from white to dark red. As an added celestial bonus, around the same time, stargazers may spot Mars at its closest position to Earth in 15 years, making the red planet appear about 10 times brighter than usual.
