'Blood Moon' to Grace Nigerian Skies On July 27

06 Juillet, 2018, 23:51 | Auteur: Therese Cote

During the total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the central part of the Earth's shadow.

Both the ESA's current Lunar Agenda and the agency's strategy regarding lunar exploration are robust, and it will be exciting to follow what they have in mind.

On April 15, 2014, there was a total lunar eclipse which was the first of four consecutive total eclipses in a series, known as a tetrad; a second one took place on October 8, 2014, the third one on April 4, 2015, and the remaining one took place on September 27, 2015. The Earth's satellite will appear partly reddish blue on July 27 and can be witnessed from different parts of the country.

For those who aren't able to see the lunar eclipse this month, July has another treat in store for skygazers.

The good news is lunar eclipse will be the longest of the 21 Century, with totality lasting for 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Hurricane forecasters say tropical depression "likely" to form off East Coast
Because it's so small - winds extend just 35 miles from its center - forecasters said the storm could continue to morph quickly. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.

This July full moon and July lunar apogee - the moon's most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit - both fall on the same date. The moon will take shades from right orange to blood red.

Skywatchers in North America will not be able to see the rare event and will have to wait until 2020 to experience a total lunar eclipse.

Depending on atmospheric conditions, this could be an especially dark total eclipse.

You can still watch the eclipse even if you're not going to be in one of the countries where it will be most visible.

According to a report by DailyMailUK Online, the lunar event, which takes place on July 27, will be visible to most people living in the Eastern hemisphere and will last for 103 minutes - four minutes short of the longest possible duration an eclipse could last. With the light of the moon blocked by earth's shadow, it's the flawless time to view stars and celestial bodies not often visible to the naked eye.
