Total lunar eclipse expected on July 28

Sandra Phillips | 06 July, 2018, 23:51

NASA says the lunar eclipse will last for 1 hour and 43 minutes with total viability in Eastern Africa and Central Asia.

You will then be able to see the eclipse at key moments - when the 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.

The partial eclipse of the blood moon will start at 11:54 pm IST on July 27.

What is a lunar eclipse? 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.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration, the event will also be seen in Antarctica, Australasia, Asia, Russia, except the northern part; Africa, Europe, and east of South America. It is said the full eclipse will last over an hour and 30 minutes, whereas the partial eclipse would last over an hour.

However, critics say there is not enough evidence to support the claim that the chemicals are bad for coral reefs. Between 6,000 and 14,000 tons of sunscreen are released onto coral reefs every year, a 2015 paper found .

Also known as a bloody moon, it can be a total eclipse or a partial eclipse, which is when only a slice of the moon is affected by the Earth's shadow.

Lunar eclipse will occur on July 27, Khidir Mikayilov, Deputy Director of Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory named after Nasiraddin Tusi for Scientific Affairs of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS), told APA. At 1:52 AM, the moon will be the darkest.

The total lunar eclipse will be preceded and followed by partial eclipses.

According to Fundamental Astronomy, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. As with most lunar eclipses, the moon appeared red during the April 15, 2014, eclipse. During its greatest eclipse, the moon takes on a reddish hue which is sometimes referred to as a blood moon. During a lunar eclipse, the light from the moon is much less intense than the emission of solar eclipse.
