Start planning now for longest lunar eclipse of the century

Because the line of view is directed at the moon instead of the sun, lunar eclipses, unlike solar eclipses, are completely safe for full frontal viewing.

The reason this lunar eclipse will be a particularly long one is because the moon will be passing nearly directly through the central part of Earth's shadow, while the moon is at a particularly distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit.

The full blood moon lunar eclipse will take place on July 27, 2018, so keep peeling your eyes in the starting hours of that night and 28th.During glasses, the natural satellite of the Earth will turn red because our planet exposes light from the sun, which usually appears in the bright moon, which we see in the night sky.

This eclipse will last one hour and 43 minutes - almost 40 minutes longer than the January 31 Super Blue Blood Moon combo.

The eclipse will also be partially visible for 3 hours and 55 minutes. But you may have to travel to see it since the eclipse will only be visible in parts of South America, much of Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. Not only was it an eclipse, but it became a Super Blue Blood Moon as it synced up with a supermoon - which is a moon that appears extra big and bright - and a blue moon, which is the second full moon during a calendar month. Eastern) and timeanddate.com will begin streaming at 6:00 p.m. UTC (2:00 p.m.

The longest total lunar eclipse of the century is set to dazzle most of the world, except the USA, just shy of a year after the 2017 solar eclipse created a path of totality across America. The totality, or when the earth's shadow covers the moon and creates complete darkness, will last one hour and 43 minutes. For viewers in India, the eclipse, both partial and the total, will be visible in its entirety from all parts of the country. The Red Planet will make its close approach on July 31 at a distance of about 35.8 million miles, according to NASA.

EarthSky notes that the longest possible lunar eclipse is 1 hour and 47 minutes. During those dates, it will be at its brightest in the sky and will even be visible to the naked eye.

According to Dr. Amanda Bosh, a professor of astronomy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the moon will be at its furthest point from earth, called the apogee, during the eclipse.

Explaining the celestial phenomenon, Mr Duari said a lunar eclipse takes place only at full moon.

Therefore, passing through the shadows will take more time so that the eclipse is visible for long periods.
