Lunar Eclipse 2018 in India Today

Lunar Eclipse 2018 in India Today”

A rare blood moon lunar eclipse that arrives Friday night won't be visible for most of North America, but that doesn't mean you can't watch it.

Visible from most countries across the globe, the spectacle was at its most impressive when viewed from the Middle East, East Africa, Western China, and India. It's the longest full lunar eclipse of the century, so you can be sure that there will be plenty of people with lenses pointed skyward.

Aussies across the country set their alarms early and were treated to an awesome view of the rare eclipse.

It will reach peak eclipse at 9:22 (BST), however, the total eclipse will last for a total of 1 hour 43 minutes.

"The rim of the earth would be glowing because light is being scattered by the earth's atmosphere".

We may not be able to see this week's total lunar eclipse here in D.C., but you can take in the views from around the world via livestream.

The next such lunar eclipse won't be until 2123.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. The moon will be in flawless alignment with the sun and Earth on Friday, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun.

From Russia to Sydney, Germany to Abu Dhabi, thousands of people witnessed a attractive crimson globe as the full moon crossed the centre of the Earth's shadow.

Andrew Fabian, professor of astronomy at the University of Cambridge, explained how the Moon took on the red hue.

According to astronomers, the phenomenon also saw mars move close to earth, making it brighter and bigger than usual. To the naked eye, it looked like a tiny button thrown on a black blanket, but to astronomists using a telescope, the white dot was the moon perfectly aligned with the sun and Earth.

This occurs when an eclipsed moon can be seen on one horizon, while the rising sun can be observed on the other. At what time of day the lunar eclipse appeared depended on where you live.

Two very similar passages appear later in the New Testament, in the books of Acts and Revelations.

"All eclipses are spectacular", the Royal Astronomical Society's Robert Massey said.

In a lunar eclipse, the Earth stands between its natural satellite and the Sun.
