Total Eclipse of the Moon on 27 July 2018

The lunar eclipse will last for 1 hour and 43 minutes. Because of how Earth's atmosphere filters blue light, the moon appears red during a lunar eclipse.

The earlier long duration total lunar eclipse had occurred on 15 June 2011, which lasted for 1 hour 40 minutes.

If you have spent this summer in Sweden you know that it has been one of the sunniest (and also hottest and driest) summers in recent times, and we're expecting clear skies in most of the country tonight.

The moon orbits, or goes around the Earth.

"If that were true, we'd be in big trouble given the gravitational pulls on Earth, Mars, and our moon!" the NASA website states. This happens only when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned, with Earth in the middle. It is called a lunar eclipse, according to NASA website. From Whanganui to Wellington there is just a slim chance of glimpsing the totally-eclipsed Moon as the Sun peeks above the horizon.

During the eclipse, the moon will look red, which is also referred to as a "blood moon". The moon will begin to appear reddish around 18:24 GMT as it moves into the main part of the Earth's shadow. "The rim of the earth would be glowing because light is being scattered by the earth's atmosphere".

Path of the Moon into Earth's Shadows and the times during the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 28 from Brunei DarussalamLooking about West at around 2am from Brunei Darussalam, the Blood Moon and Mars will put on a stellar show on July 28. However, there still is a way using which it is possible to view the "blood moon" - live stream on YouTube.

She added that the moon will be eclipsed by the Earth before it begins to rise above the horizon - meaning it will turn red before it actually appears.

Lunar eclipses occur from two to four times a year, but not all of them are visible.

Insider says Apple’s most exciting new iPhone of 2018 may be delayed
As for the future, Apple might even consider designing its own networking chips, pretty much like their main and secondary chips. Davis didn't mention Intel by name, but Intel is the only other supplier of that component for Apple's smartphones.

However, forecasters at the Met Office have warned there is a likelihood of "high-level" cloud in the area around the time the moon is set to appear, which could obscure the view of it.

The eclipse, however, will not be visible from North America or most of the Pacific. The reason as explained is the scattering of indirect sunlight by the Earth's atmosphere. The duration of the eclipse in Pakistan is expected to be six hours and 14 minutes.

How should I watch Chandra Grahan or Lunar Eclipse?

Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear. And of course, even those not in the path of the lunar eclipse can enjoy the full moon.

It will be visible in all parts of India.

One of the common myths related to food is that one should avoid during a lunar eclipse.

While Canadians won't be able to witness the event first-hand, there are ways to capture it from the comforts of home. But it can be hard to tell with the naked eye.

Finally, about the moon: For North American observers, the moon stays resolutely in its full phase on Friday night (accompanied by a sparkling Mars, of course).
