Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the 21st Century Happens in July

29 Juin, 2018, 10:40 | Auteur: Therese Cote

The total lunar eclipse will follow the super blue blood moon of January 31, which too was a once-in-a-lifetime event when a supermoon, lunar eclipse and blue moon combine together at the same time.

At multiple times in the past during various celestial events, the doomsday theory has popped up stating it could possibly end life on Earth. The obscuration won't be as detectable to watchers on the East Coast on the grounds that the moon is required to enter just the external piece of Earth's shadow.

First reported by express.co.uk, this blood moon is expected to to be visible across many parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

Otago Museum's Griffin will be part of joint project between the museum and Canterbury University at Mt John Observatory, Lake Tekapo to take photographs of Mars in the last week of July and post them on the internet. Rather than the moon disappearing from view, as happens in a solar eclipse, skywatchers can expect to see it turn a rather sinister shade of crimson, which is why many call it a "blood moon".

There will be a total lunar eclipse in next month.

From the eclipse's start to its finish, the moon will take 3 hours and 55 minutes to cross the Earth's dark umbral shadow. People in Australia, Asia, and Indonesia will have their best opportunity to see the eclipse between midnight and sunrise July 28.

The eclipse will only be visible in the Eastern Hemisphere. Well, it simply means that the moon will be covered by a shadow for quite some time, 103 minutes to be precise, which is nearly 40 minutes more than how long the Super Blue Blood Moon in January remained in shadow for. "Over the next hour more of the Moon will be covered until eventually it lies directly behind the Earth away from the Sun", Dr Duffy said.

Saturn is at "opposition", meaning the planet and the sun are on opposite sides of the Earth, according to NASA. A lunar eclipse occurs whenever Earth falls right between the two, blocking the sunlight from reaching the moon.
