Lunístico only happens every 18 years and six months – Photography: Eduardo Gallina

On Friday (21) this year it will be possible to see a very rare lunar phenomenon that occurs approximately every two decades: “The Great Lunar Inertia”.

This phenomenon, also called lunistice, occurs when the moon moves higher in the sky, appearing stationary to people on Earth.

🌕How does this happen? This event occurs when the inclination of the Moon and Earth reaches its maximum. As a result, the Moon rises at its northeasternmost point on the horizon and sets at its northwesternmost point. This causes the star to remain in the sky longer.

This only happens every 18 years and six months As of this Friday (21), which will also be the best day to observe it, it will be a full moon.

🌕 From Brazil, it is not possible to monitorBut a live broadcast of the great strike will be broadcast from Stonehenge – the stone monument in the UK.

The exhibition of Stonehenge takes place through the connection between the architecture of the monument and the stars. According to English Heritage, which runs the memorial, the construction is believed to have been affected by a major lunar pause, with some axes aligning when the moon is at the site of the phenomenon.

The broadcast will take place at 5:30 pm Brasilia time English Heritage.
