Century’s Longest Lunar Eclipse

Elijah Vega | 06 July, 2018, 23:52

One of the most anticipated astronomical events to be seen on July 27 will be seen from all parts of the country.

The eclipse, which will last for one hour and 43 minutes, will be the longest lunar eclipse of the whole 21st century. According to various reports, this incident can take more than four hours to run its course.In most countries, Stargazers will not be able to see both eclipse after each other.

The partial eclipse of the blood moon will start at 11:54 pm IST on July 27. 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. It is said the full eclipse will last over an hour and 30 minutes, whereas the partial eclipse would last over an hour.

Watch out for these two unique events are best away from the big cities as smog and smoke can completely obscure the moon during the total phase of the Eclipse, and even bright red Mars will not be visible.

The longest lunar eclipse in the 21st century will occur on July 27, 2018. From start to finish, the moon takes almost four hours to cross the earth's dark umbral shadow.

Both the ESA's current Lunar Agenda and the agency's strategy regarding lunar exploration are robust, and it will be exciting to follow what they have in mind. As with most lunar eclipses, the moon appeared red during the April 15, 2014, eclipse. The moon will bear a reddish tinge during the eclipse, giving it the name Blood Moon.

In spite of this the upcoming total lunar eclipse counts as a whopper because the most distant and smallest full moon of the year passes through the centre of the earth's shadow, which is at its widest in July. During a lunar eclipse, the light from the moon is much less intense than the emission of solar eclipse.
