Did life once exist on the moon? A new study suggest the moon may have once had habitable conditions

"It's called a blood moon because the light from the sun goes through the Earth's atmosphere on its way to the moon and the Earth's atmosphere turns it red in the same way that when the sun goes down it goes red", said Andrew Fabian, professor of astronomy at the University of Cambridge.

But the total lunar eclipse will happen at 3:30 a.m. and will peak at 4:21 a.m., also known as the "maximum eclipse", or when the moon is closest to the center of the shadow, according to Raymundo. The first lunar eclipse, a "super blood moon" occurred on January 31. As mentioned above, the moon will also fall under the region over which the earth casts its shadow. "We are making arrangements for night sky observation on the terrace of the Priyadarshini Planetarium here from 12am to 3am", said Arul Jerald Prakash, director, Kerala State Science and Technology Museum (KSSTM).

However, Mars is reaching its nearest point to Earth. That means Mars and the sun will be on exact opposite sides of Earth.

The eclipse will briefly cause the moon to appear in colors ranging "from pale orange to deep red", as Diego explains. This is the reason why lunar eclipses appear red.

Mars is at its closest to Earth in its 35-year cycle, and is the closest it's been since the early 00s, and it won't be brighter or closer to Earth again until 2035.

The total lunar eclipse is a unique celestial phenomenon in which people will have a chance to take a glimpse of the so-called "blood moon".

While the duration of lunar eclipse will be about an hour and 43 minutes, partial eclipse before and after the eclipse will last around an hour and six minutes, each- making it a almost four-hour long spectacle for the stargazers.

Oil Prices Rise as US Oil Reserves Fall
Today $68.25 is a very crucial trading level and crude oil can stay bullish above this level to target $69.45 and $70.25. Brent for September settlement advanced 31 cents to $73.75 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange.

Unlike with solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are less common and safe to watch meaning you can view it without using protective eyewear. Eventually, it cooled, forming the Moon and the Earth, according to the theory.

The moon may have once been able to support life, scientists say.

This event is not to be confused with a total solar eclipse like the one that was visible across a swath of the continental United States last summer.

Hence a black shadow will be seen taking a bite out of the moon.

Lunar eclipses are less common than solar ones but can be seen by more of the Earth. In this process, if any interference come in the way of a beam of light, the rays in the beam gets scattered, and reflect different colours.

"We should have a coppery red tint on the moon with Mars the "Red Planet" just next to it, very bright and with a slight orange hue itself", he said. Most of Europe, western Africa, Australia, China, Japan and many parts of Siberia will witness portions of the eclipse.

However, the drop in natural light pollution during the total lunar eclipse will allow people to see more of the dimmer meteors.
