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

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

Totality - the time during which the sun's light is completely blocked - will last for one hour and 43 minutes.

Though North Americans will get the worst view in the world of the historic eclipse, we'll still be able to witness the reddish colour of the moon, just not a gradual and lengthy transition like people in Europe and Africa will. During the eclipse, the moon will pass through Earth's darkest shadow and take on a red sheen, with the phenomenon being described as the "blood moon".

But dust thrown into the atmosphere by recent volcanic eruptions in Hawaii and Guatemala was likely to paint the moon a deeper red.

Reichardt says moon-gazers can use the opportunity to look for other planets including Jupiter and Mars.

A picture taken on January 31, 2018 shows the moon rising behind a mountain during a lunar eclipse, referred to as the "super blue blood moon" near Syria-Turkey border at the Hassa district in Hatay. But North America, a large part of the Pacific ocean and a large part of the Arctic did not notice.

"A partial eclipse precedes and follows the total phase of eclipse, each time lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes". Partial eclipses will precede and succeed the total eclipse, meaning that from start to finish, the moon will spend almost four hours travelling behind Earth. And that is why it's also known as the blood moon.

Novichok attack victim Charlie Rowley leaves hospital
But Security Minister Ben Wallace wrote on Twitter: "I think this story belongs in the "ill-informed and wild speculation folder". Police reveal the source of the Novichok that poisoned Ms Sturgess and her partner was a small bottle found in Mr Rowley's home.

The statement further said that "It is occurring at a time when the moon is at its farthest distance from the earth and so it will be the longest total lunar eclipse in this century". Although there are three partial solar eclipses this year, none are visible in the U.S. That's how it gets the dramatic-sounding "blood moon" nickname. Contrary to belief, Lunar Eclipse can be seen by the naked eye, and people won't have to use a special equipment and/or glasses to watch the moon. "In early days experiencing a total lunar eclipse would have felt like the end of the world". The moon will start turning red about 5:30 a.m. on the same day.

The live stream, which you can find here, will kick off on the night of the eclipse at 7.30pm BST (6.30pm UTC). This will result in Mars coming close to the Earth, causing it to appear brighter than normal and it will be seen from evening to dawn towards the end of July.
