Longest total lunar eclipse of the century to occur on July 27

Longest total lunar eclipse of the century to occur on July 27

The land is fully eclipsed by the moon in one hour and 43 minutes.

The last total lunar eclipse graced the night skies with its presence on the night of January 31, 2018, and was the spectacular Super Blue Blue Blood Moon combo. That means "the moon will come inside the shadow of the Earth and will stop receiving the light from the sun", Diego adds. From the moon's vantage point, the Earth would appear to be surrounded by a 25,000-mile-around ring of fire. Except for the population of one continent.

Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear. However, their appearances are very different.

The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand says the country will see the start of the eclipse as the Moon moves into the penumbra (Earth's outer shadow). Because the red wavelengths are scattered less than the blue and violet wavelengths, the moon appears red from our perspective.

While today's Moon is silent and sterile, around 4 billion years ago it would have been fiery and active following its dramatic birth.

Solar eclipses are typically only seen by a small selection of the earth's population because the shadow cast by the moon is comparatively smaller than that cast by the earth. Here, the moon doesn't turn "dark" during an eclipse, but instead appears to turn red. The moon, on the day, will also have a reddish-orange colour, giving it the name Micro Blood Moon.

A study published Monday in the journal Astrobiology cites two time periods during the moon's distant past when conditions on the surface were potentially habitable.

A total eclipse will start at 1:00 am (July 28). According to both Schulze-Makuch and Crawford, this huge amount of gases being released could have led to the formation of little of pools of liquid water on the surface of the Moon, and would have made the atmosphere dense enough to not let the water escape. People can safely watch lunar eclipse with naked eye.

Due to dust in the atmosphere from recent volcanic eruptions, the red color should be deeper than usual. Keen stargazers in east Africa, the Middle East and central Asia are likely to have the best view of the eclipse. While, a section of scientists have also indicated the possibility of high tides and sea erosion along Kerala coast.

North America will be out of luck, though, since the moon will be below the horizon.

However, he once told people in South Australia about one and they took a selfie with the Sun illuminating them and the Moon behind them.

In addition, it will also fall under the region over which the Earth casts its shadow, called the Umbra. These events will play out simultaneously over the night sky, on the final hours of July 27, and the early hours of July 28.

The total lunar eclipse begins at 19:30 UTC and ends at 21:13 UTC followed by another partial eclipse that ends at 22:19 UTC. "At this time, the moon passes into the shadow of the Earth, blocking the light from the sun".
