Mars Shows Off This Month Before Blood Moon Eclipse

05 Julio, 2018, 20:04 | Author: Enrique Watson

This month we'll enjoy a partial solar eclipse, the longest total lunar eclipse of the century, Mars in opposition, and a meteor shower, and, on the last day of July, we'll witness the Red Planet getting as closest as possible to the Earth.

This July will be special due to some rare and exciting astronomical events, we will witness a total Lunar Eclipse on July 27, where the moon will enter the shadow of the earth for about four hours, and the event will be seen clearly across three continents at least.

Get ready for the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century that would occur on July 27, with the celestial spectacle visible in its entirety from all parts of India.

"Blood moon" is a non-scientific term used to refer to the red tinge on a fully eclipsed moon. 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.

The full moon will plunge deeply into the Earth's shadow on the night of July 27-28. During those dates, it will be at its brightest in the sky and will even be visible to the naked eye. This additionally makes it the longest time when an eclipse will be partially observable between the years 2011 and 2020. The eclipse will be partially visible for 3 hours and 55 minutes. For viewers in India, the eclipse, both partial and the total, will be visible in its entirety from all parts of the country.

In India, the partial eclipse will begin on July 13 at 07:18 am and the last location to see the partial eclipse would be at 08:13 am.

The blood moon is also supposed to herald the end of times (boo!), according to some doomsday prophets.

Describing 2018, as a year of lunar eclipses, Duari said the last total lunar eclipse took place earlier this year on January 31. Solar eclipses are unsafe to watch without certified, special glasses, but lunar eclipses don't require special head gear. Not only was it an eclipse, but it became a Super Blue Blood Moon because 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.

Late at night on July 27, the full moon will be near its apogee, the farthest point from Earth in its orbit around Earth, and it will be the smallest full moon of the year. From some places, the entire eclipse will be visible, while in other areas the Moon will rise or set during the eclipse. "One does not need a telescope to watch the eclipse, though a good pair of binoculars will enhance the experience".
