Century’s Longest Lunar Eclipse To Be Seen In India On July 27

Unfortunately, the United States will, again, lose a great opportunity to see this up and coming phenomenon, so on the off chance that you want to see the longest lunar eclipse of the century, you'll need to go to one of the other five continents, from which you could see it perfectly.

The longest lunar eclipse of the century will tint the moon a deep red July 27 in both Central Asia and Eastern Africa.

A solar eclipse or Surya Grahan which is on July 13, 2018, comes nearly after 5 months after a partial solar eclipse was visible earlier in February. One can use eye protection like sunglasses, x-ray film or special eclipse glasses to witness the eclipse. Observers off the southern coasts of Australia and New Zealand may shortly witness the eclipse.

While many people will be able to see partial views of the eclipse, areas in eastern Africa, the Middle East and some parts of Europe and Asia will have some of the best views of the moon turning red and when the totality begins to recede, astronomers tell TIME.

The scientist said that at 1.52 am on July 28, the moon would look the darkest and it would continue till 2:43 am.

A blood moon takes place when Earth blocks the light of the sun from the moon.

Greenpeace activists fly ‘Superman’ drone in to French nuclear site
France generates about 75 percent of its electricity from nuclear power in 19 nuclear sites operated by the state-controlled EDF. EDF said the spent-fuel pool buildings were robust and created to withstand natural disasters and accidents.

According to Dr. Amanda Bosh, a professor of astronomy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the moon will be at its furthest point from earth, called the apogee, during the eclipse. "That is why a full moon at or near lunar apogee adds to the duration of a total lunar eclipse", Mr Duari said. The distance of the Moon from Earth just before the eclipse will be around 406,223 km. The total lunar eclipse will display a "blood moon" phenomena in all its glory, and you can read about the whys, where and when of what that is in this article from the Inquisitr.

Stargazers in North America and the Arctic will not be able to view the blood moon in the sky, but there will be plenty of coverage online. But during a lunar eclipse, the glow of the moon has a much less intense brightness than the sun.

"Whenever, the Sun, Earth and Moon come in a flawless straight line, as the Sun's rays falls on the Earth, the Earth's shadow falls onto a patch of space, and only when, the Moon enters that patch of shadow, we see a lunar eclipse", he said.

Therefore, passing through the shadows will take more time so that the eclipse is visible for long periods.

"It was widely known as Super Blue Blood Moon as it was a so-called supermoon, when a Moon appears extra big and bright being closest to the Earth in its elliptical orbit".
