Australia is getting a Blood Moon this weekend

Total Lunar Eclipse – Blood Moon

Total Lunar Eclipse – Blood Moon

"India is at the centre stage of the lunar eclipse".

Unfortunately, given that the total eclipse is scheduled to occur from 3:30 p.m.to 5:13 p.m. EDT, North Americans will be unable to observe the epic celestial event. Totality - the time during which the sun's light is completely blocked - will last for one hour and 43 minutes.

Due to this reddish colour, a totally eclipsed moon is sometimes called a blood moon.

Andrew Batchelor, founder of Dundee Culture, said: "The longest lunar eclipse this century takes place on Friday". "The moon will remain in a very faint penumbral shadow for about an hour after that, but this is typically too light a shadow for the naked eye to notice the difference between that and the full moon that follows." 2.

Christian preachers John Hagee and Mark Blitz predicted that a tetrad - that's four lunar eclipses in a row - would hail the end of the world.

Brad Tucker, researcher at Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, explained why we don't get a lunar eclipse every lunar cycle.

For those who aren't able to see the lunar eclipse this month, July has another treat in store for skygazers when Mars makes a close approach to Earth. During an orbit, Earth will once in a while line up directly between the sun and the moon, causing Earth's shadow to cover the moon.

The red moon is possible because while the moon is in total shadow, some light from the sun passes through Earth's atmosphere and is bent toward the moon.

An added treat next week: July's total lunar eclipse occurs on the same day the planet Mars reaches its opposition, when it will shine at its best in the night sky, according to Space.com.

Coming Friday and the world is set to see an exhibition of the rarest of a special assortment-the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century.

South-eastern observers will be able to see the eclipse for somewhat longer than north-western ones.

Alas, none of it will be visible in North America.

On July 27 the Sun and Mars will lie opposite to each other with Earth in the middle. As a result, the planet, which is at its closest to Earth - and therefore, its brightest - since 2003, will live up to its nickname and appear red as well.
