How to watch the longest lunar eclipse of the century

How to watch the longest lunar eclipse of the century

The eclipse will be visible in the regions covering Australia, Asia, Russia - except the northern part, Africa, Europe, east of South America and Antarctica.

A total lunar eclipse happens when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned, with Earth blocking the sun's light from fully reaching the moon.

Indeed, the term "blood moon" was popularised in 2013 following the release of the book Four Blood Moons by Christian minister John Hagee.

It's also what's being called a "blood moon".

It's going to be a rare celestial event, he added.

You could also get arty and see if you can catch the moon's reflection in, for instance, a window pane.

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

Meadows said they could instead file it as a privileged motion, requiring a vote on the House floor within two days. The contempt resolution would first have to move through the Judiciary Committee, according to Republican aides.

Do note that the time of the maximum eclipse is 1.51 am, so if you want to see the blood moon in full glory try to stay awake till then.

Our red moon will have some company Friday, when Mars is the closest to Earth that it's been in 15 years. The Moon will be gradually covered by the Earth's shadow and the totality phase will begin at 1h 00m IST on July 28. And of course, even those not in the path of the lunar eclipse can enjoy the full moon. As a result, it will take the moon or Earth's natural satellite more time to cross Earth's shadow, making the eclipse last longer, reported the Guardian. It will appear unusually large and bright, a mere 35.9 million miles from Earth on its elliptical orbit around the sun.

"We have a rare and interesting conjunction of phenomena", Pascal Descamps, an astronomer with the Paris Observatory, told AFP.

That can make the moon look slightly smaller and less bright, especially compared with a super moon.

But it will not be visible in North America and Antarctica. From Whanganui to Wellington there is just a slim chance of glimpsing the totally-eclipsed Moon as the Sun peeks above the horizon. Typically, the moon reflects the sun's light, but during an eclipse, the moon's orbit takes the light through the Earth's shadow. The planetarium has organised a "Moon Carnival" for people in the national capital to watch the eclipse, PTI reported.

Pick a geographic location and search for all eclipses visible from that spot over several thousand years.

The entire eclipse can be viewed from Brunei until moon set at 6.23am, Hazarry said.
