Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of 21st Century to fall on 27th July

Sandra Phillips | 29 June, 2018, 12:55

The whole eclipse from start to finish will endure for almost four hours. A tetrad is referred to four consecutive lunar eclipses which happened in April 2014, October 2014, April 2015 and September 2015. This is the least full month of the year, so you will need more time to pass through the Earth's shadow, i.e. the Eclipse will last longer. Therefore, only red light, having the longest wavelength in the visible spectrum, travels to the Moon, and results in the Moon appearing blood red.

"I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great natural disaster; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood", the passage reads. The "blood moon" theory originated from the Book of Joel which says: "The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into the blood, before the great and awful day of the Lord comes". The bad news is that North America will not be able to see it. Due to the distance between earth and moon, the moon looks more prominent in size than it's usual form. The eclipse will only be visible in the Eastern Hemisphere July is shaping up to be an excellent month for astronomy fans.

The most prolonged in the XXI century total Eclipse of the moon and opposition to Mars, as well inhabitants of the Earth in July 2018, predict astronomers.

Where will be the Blood Moon or Century's longest lunar shroud unmistakable? At that time Earth and the Red Planet are said to be much closer in their orbits around the sun.

Blood Moon is a rare astronomical phenomenon which takes place because of a lunar eclipse.

Aside from the uncommon blood moon on July 27-28, Mars will likewise watch the nearest remove from Earth in 15 years amid the lunar eclipse. The darkest part of Earth's shadow is called the umbra. We will have a full moon and a great view of Saturn.

Lunar apogee is the moon's farthest orbital point from Earth making it appear particularly small and distant.
