The “Great Lunar Pause”, a very rare phenomenon that occurs approximately every two decades, can be seen in different parts of the world on Friday (21).

🔭 From Brazil, it is not possible to monitor. Also called lunistice, this event occurs when the moon moves higher in the sky – and appears 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, and it happens on a Friday, also the night of the full moon.
