Another flight is going absolutely nowhere.
Qantas Airways, the flag carrier of Australia, has previously offered passengers a chance to see the Great Barrier Reef and Antarctica before returning to the same takeoff airport. Its latest flight to nowhere gives passengers the opportunity to see the upcoming lunar eclipse/supermoon while in the sky.
During the total phase of the lunar eclipse, the moon will turn an impressive red hue. The colorful phenomenon is also called a “super blood moon” and happens when the earth lines up between the moon and the sun, filtering the sun’s light through its atmosphere. The light that reflects off the moon’s surface is then a beautiful shade of red. The eclipse is expected to be visible on May 26, 2021, in most of Australia.
