Longest lunar eclipse on July 27

Longest lunar eclipse on July 27”

The second lunar eclipse of the year, the longest of the 21st century, will begin at 11.54 pm on Friday and will last an hour and 43 minutes. But need not worry as India will fall under the zone in which the blood moon will be visible.

As we approach this remarkable event, we will tell you what to expect. "We can simply download an app on to our phone". The city is the contrast between the moon and the sky is not so bright.

Which means there's only one thing to do: Check out the red planet. Together, these gases take white sunlight - a mix of all colors of the spectrum - and scatter around blue and purple colors. Unless a Lunar Eclipse is very dark, it is usually quite easy to make out the dark Maria, contrasting with the brighter, cratered highlands, with the naked eye. "Beyond that, the view of the moon will already be affected by twilight", he said. The next lunar eclipse of such a length is due in 2123.

Noton's solution to this is a simple one, whether you're using a professional camera or the professional mode on your smartphone.

"The higher you are, the better, because the sun will be barely clearing the horizon as the moon sets in the opposite direction".

Rain clouds and thunderstorms could prevent skygazers from seeing the "blood moon" lunar eclipse on Friday as forecasters warn of torrential downpours across eastern parts of Great Britain.

It is best to get out of town, away from light and lights. As Noton points out, you can use the digital zoom to fill the frame, however it will drastically reduce the image quality.

Although the moon is uninhabitable today, we can not definitively rule out that it has never harbored life in the past, according to a couple of American and British astrobiologists who recently published an article on the subject matter in the journal Astrobiology.

The total eclipse typically brings a brick-brown, copper brown or reddish glow to the Moon. The Blood Moon occurs when the moon is passing between the Earth and the sun.

The effect is caused by the sun's rays being filtered by the Earth's atmosphere, meaning that red light hits the surface of the Moon.

"Red light had a better chance of doing so for the same reason the sky was blue - shorter wavelengths were scattered more efficiently by the molecules in our atmosphere". During a total Eclipse of the Moon, the range of shading and the intensity of colour vary enormously.

When is the blood moon?

These events will play out simultaneously over the night sky, on the final hours of July 27, and the early hours of July 28.

Astronomical Society president Josef Borg added that the partial phase of the eclipse would start at 8.24pm, with its totality - when the moon is fully covered by the umbra - being reached at 9.30pm.
