Blood Moon to bring the longest lunar eclipse in a century

27 June 2018, 05:30 | Ross Houston

Just as so many other things in this life, it's possible that this headline will be accurate: "Blood moon "to bring end of the world" as stargazers enjoy longest lunar eclipse this century".

Mars will also appear especially large and bright in the sky that night as it moves towards its closest approach to Earth for 15 years. It is going to be a "blood moon" and it is projected to be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

Alex Iwobi & John Ogu reveal Nigeria’s mission against Argentina
After two games they sit on one point after a disappointing 1-1 draw to Iceland and a humiliating 3-0 loss to Croatia. All eyes will be on Argentina tonight, as La Albiceleste's hopes of World Cup qualification hang by a thread.

With the eclipse lasting this long, it will be around 40 minutes longer than the one that took place on January 31 which was known as the 'Super Blue Blood Moon.' At the time, the sighting of the super blue blood moon and a total lunar eclipse was the first time such an occurrence took place in India since 1982.

According to Mirror UK, Hagee and Blitz particularly point to what they call the "tetrad"-four consecutive lunar eclipses which began in April 2014 with six full moons in between". Europe and Africa will witness the eclipse during the evening hours, sometime between sunset and midnight on July 27, according to the reports. And you can look to the city skies for the Blood Moon (that's when the Moon is in the Earth's shadow, giving it a reddish tint, btw) on July 27th and the morning of the 28th. McClure estimates that the total lunar eclipse will include partial eclipses that start at 6:24 UTC, or 2:24 p.m. EST, to 10:29 UTC, or 6:29 p.m. EST. During a blood moon, the moon turns from a deep red to orange colour rather than completely disappearing when it passes through the shadow cast by Earth. There will also Rayleigh scattering, which removes green and violet light particles in the sky during the eclipse. Those of you in the Eastern Hemisphere (Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand) will have the best seats as the moon crosses Earth's shadow from west to east. However, people in North America and Arctic-Pacific region won't be able to get a hold of this event this time. I can safely say there is absolutely nothing to worry about when a total lunar eclipse occurs.
