Special time because full lunar eclipse Holidays at the Planetarium Aristotle Orsini – better known Ibirapuera Planetarium -, located south of the capital, starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 3 a.m. Monday, 16th. The site will also present interviews of the dome with astronomers (free and paid), satellite satellite observations with the help of telescopes and yoga classes.

On Sunday evening and Monday morning, the Moon enters Earth’s shadow and forms the entire lunar eclipse – for the first time since May 2021. The apex will be around 1: At 11 a.m., when the sky satellite turns red, an event called “Blood Moon.”

“This red light is very similar to the sunset. We see the sun touch the earth and the atmosphere will turn red, “explains João Fonseca, director of the planetarium.

The next full lunar eclipse will only occur in November, according to NASA, headquartered in the US. However, Fonseca pointed out that it would be shorter and could not be seen from Brazil.

The ship is delivering goods to the port of Ibirapuera at 10 p.m. You will be able to see the live stream. Two telescopes will be available so people can see the moon better, with the help of eyesight. Also around the pool, there will be two yoga classes, at 00:20 and 1:20. All attractions are free.

First, at the dome planetarium, two shows will help visitors better understand and watch the eclipse. In the model, the light playing on an optical projector provides immersion in a few minutes, while the eye can be used for darkness. The projection of the bright dots shows the real star. He almost forgot that you were in a prison.

The longest show will be “There is a Shadow of the Moon”, which, for 40 minutes, an astronomer will explain more about the eclipse and their important culture in human history kwm. There will be two free 40-minute sessions, at 7pm and 9pm. Tickets are free by appointment by source.

“The Lunar Eclipse Sky” is only 15 minutes long. The idea is to take the observations of the eclipse of visitors, interestingly, for example, the star will be visible. Meetings will be held over a 30-minute period (22:00, 22:30, 23:00, 23:30, 00:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30 and 3:00) . Tickets cost R $ 20 (full price) and R $ 10 (half price), and can be purchased online or at the Planetarium box office.

This is the first time that the planetarium has presented a short talk show. “We will try this form at a speedy discussion,” Fonseca said. “We want to see the impact of dynamic dialogue.”

Fonseca, however, suggests that the star of the night will be the moon itself. “You will not need the projection.” It is therefore advisable to wear a rug or mat to watch the eclipse at the quiet spot of Ibirapuera Park.

“Astronomical events work well to connect us to space,” Fonseca said. “It’s a way for us to look at the sky again, not to look at our little black screen below and reconnect with the black screen above.”

Astronomer Mirian Castejon Molina, from the planetarium, points out that celestial observations are important and help improve humanity. “In the past, people looked at the sky, tried to discover, understood certain patterns, to survive.”

If you are not in São Paulo or can not go to Ibirapuera, you can see the eclipse under cover. The National Observatory (ON / MCTI) will announced the result on Youtube, by 11:15 pm NASA will continue to do so canal as usual.

lunar eclipse

Lunar eclipses only occur during the full moon, when the sky satellite and the sun are on the other side of the earth, so they see the naked eye. Unlike solar eclipses, which require special goggles to prevent injuries and are only visible for a few minutes, all solar eclipses can last longer than an hour and No eye protection is required.

Eclipses are ephemeris that have always instigated human beings. In the past people were afraid. The Incas thought that while they were having an eclipse, a jaguar hit the moon. The red moon represents blood.

Research, they are also important. Even in ancient Greece, Aristotle observed that the shadows cast on the moon when the eclipses were round. This is a sign that the world is going to be spheroid.


The history of astronomer Fonseca, 38, is marked by a planetarium. “I became a scientist because of the world.” The memory of what he thought was his first visit, around 5 years old, is still alive. “I fear the sky. I thought I would lose. ”

Today, under the guidance of the planetarium, it is full of ages and desires to bring more people to the space. He thought of taking yoga classes and fighting for the stars in the sky from the dome, for example. “The planetarium must pass.”

The Aristotle Orsini Planetarium was first opened in Brazil, opening in January 1957. With its reopening in September – it was closed for most of the first two years of transmission – a public space. Test on Fridays (with sessions between, 3pm, 5pm and 7pm), Saturday (1pm, 3pm, 5pm and 7pm) Sunday) and Sunday (11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.).

Four shows were presented: “From Earth to Earth” (travel through space and time), “Planetas do Universo” (about the importance of learning about potential nature of life on the outside), “See the sky of São Paulo next vez” (show the sky São Paulo 1957, never seen before) and “O Projeto Científico” (children).
