Ireland is due to experience its most impressive lunar eclipse for the next 14 years overnight.

The total part of the eclipse runs for just over an hour, from 4:41am to 5:43am tomorrow (Monday) morning.

The Moon will be positioned high in the Western skies as seen from the entire country.

David Moore, the editor of Astronomy Ireland magazine, has told people that it is something that people should not be willing to miss.

"This total lunar eclipse will be entirely seen in Irish skies from start to finish so we are recommending everyone take a day off work or school and watch this amazing spectacle of nature when the brilliant full moon turns to a dim 'blood moon' for 62 minutes."

The forecast for Donegal tonight is for a cool dry night with clear skies, so viewing should be good.
