  • Eclipse 2018 Blood Moon and planet Earth

At the end of July, the moon gazers will have a new treat because a splendid full "blooded moon" lunar eclipse which is going to be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth comes between the moon and the sun, causing the earth's shadow to cover the moon.

The eclipse will be visible in two parts, the first one being a total lunar eclipse that would last an hour and 43 minutes followed by a partial eclipse that would last a little more than an hour, according to Director, Research and Academic, MP Birla Institute of Fundamental Research, MP Birla Planetarium, Debiprosad Duari.

"A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow just as a solar eclipse when part of the Earth passes through the moon's shadow".

During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colourful appearance from bright orange to blood red and more rarely dark brown to very dark gray, depending upon the part of the Earth's shadow it would be passing through.

The U.S. will miss out again with this upcoming celestial phenomenon, as it will be visible in one of the other five continents. Yet, you may need to do a little traveling plan to see it, since the eclipse might be visible in parts of South America, quite a bit of Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. The totality, or when the earth's shadow covers the moon and creates complete darkness, will last one hour and 43 minutes.

Lunar eclipses are completely safe to view with the naked eye. Eastern). The moon will be partially eclipsed for roughly an hour before and after the total eclipse, and the maximum eclipse will occur at 8:22 p.m. UTC (4:22 p.m. This also makes it the longest time an eclipse will be partially visible between the years 2011 and 2020.

A total lunar eclipse will rise over the night sky this summer, and it will be the longest eclipse of this century, according to NASA. Solar eclipses are risky to watch without certified, special glasses, but lunar eclipses don't require special head gear.

Describing 2018, as a year of lunar eclipses, Duari said the last total lunar eclipse took place earlier this year on January 31. A blue moon is second full moon amid a calendar month.

Those with the best views will be able to see the lunar eclipse at key moments - when earth's shadow begins to cover the moon, when the moon turns red, and when the shadow begins to recede, all of which will happen over a period of four hours.

July will also see Mars make a close approach, reaching the point in its orbit when it is closest to Earth. But during a lunar eclipse, the glow of the moon has a much less intense brightness than the sun.
