The moon will turn blood red in Canberra early on Saturday morning

The moon will turn blood red in Canberra early on Saturday morning

Places like eastern Africa and parts of the Middle East will see a full lunar eclipse.

According to ABC News, on this Friday, Earthlings can witness the longest total lunar eclipse that'll turn the Moon reddish orange. The July 27 lunar eclipse will be especially long because the moon will be at its farthest point in its orbit.

The next total lunar eclipse visible in the USA will be on January 21, 2019, according to NASA, and will occur during a super moon. A "blood moon" and lunar eclipse are coming Friday!

This will be a historical eclipse as it will last three hours and 55 minutes, making it the longest eclipse of this century.

Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the century on July 27, 28
Before you get all excited about watching the blood moon , read these interesting science facts about lunar eclipse 2018. Even more compelling, we know that simple lifeforms were already plentiful on Earth 3.5-3.8 billion years ago.

Amid the eclipse, the moon will seem red, giving it the epithet "blood moon".

"The Moon is not always in ideal alignment with the Sun and the Earth, so that is why we do not get a lunar eclipse every lunar cycle", Brad Tucker, an astronomer with the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, said in a statement.

"The blue light as it passes through the atmosphere is scattered more strongly, so you're left with the red light skimming over the Earth when the Earth is between the moon and the sun". Rather than that sunlight hitting the moon's surface, Earth's shadow falls on it, according to National Aeronautics and Space Administration. It is entirely safe to view directly with the naked eye, telescopes or binoculars, say experts.

But Friday's lunar eclipse has reignited Evangelical interest in a possible link between the event, the Jewish state, and the apocalypse. We will not be able to see the eclipse in Jacksonville, or in any of North America.

Trump hits back at Cohen and ‘fake news’ over Tower meeting allegations
A person familiar with the matter has confirmed to USA TODAY that Cohen is aware that Trump had advance knowledge of the meeting. They met with a lawyer linked to the Kremlin and a Russian businessman who initially had offered to disclose dirt on Clinton.

The next total lunar eclipse will only be visible in Africa in 2025.

To get the best view of the eclipse, make sure you are in an area with low-light pollution.

Moreover, astronomy enthusiasts will also be able to see planet Mars along with the total lunar eclipse at the same time.

The moon will rise in the south-east first, at around 8.50pm in London, and the eclipse will continue until early on Saturday.

It's a preseason game so if you make mistakes you should lose - that's OK and if you learn from it that's OK. United have now played four games in the States and won only one of them - on penalties against AC Milan.

Then slowly the eclipse will start decreasing and finally at about3.58am on July 28, the eclipse would be in the partial phase for one hour and nine minutes, said BM Birla Science Centre. The planet Mars comes at opposition at an average interval of 2 years and 2 months when the planet comes close to the Earth and becomes brighter.
