The total lunar eclipse will occur on July 28, 2018 and the appearance of this eclipse will be different than usual.
It will be the longest lunar eclipse in the 21st century, according to National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
And if lucky, you can see it for one hour 43 minutes.
The lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon are in a straight line. This means that the Earth is directly between the Sun and the Moon, so the sunlight is hampered.
The eclipse then occurs when the Moon enters the Earth’s shadow.
In different stages, these astronomical symptoms will occur for three hours and 55 minutes.
On the night of the lunar eclipse, there will also be a symptom of “blood moon”, the name given for its red color.
This happens because of the visual effect when sunlight is filtered into the atmosphere and red and orange are projected onto the Moon.
In addition, during the July 28 eclipse, the Moon will be at its “peak”, that is, at the furthest point from Earth.
Where and when can you see it?
The July 28 eclipse will be full in Indonesia on Saturday.
In addition, most of Europe, Africa, Middle East, Central Asia and Australia can also see it. Basically most places in the world, except North America.
You do not need a telescope to watch it, but good binoculars will certainly help.
If you are in a place where you can see it, you should be able to watch as the Moon moves up, at its highest point at 20:21 GMT
The best place to enjoy this symptom is in the half of East Africa, Middle East and Central Asia.
Eclipses can not be seen in various regions of Central and North America.
In South America, eclipses can only be seen partly in the east, in cities like Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
In those cities and other places around it, the eclipse will be visible when the Moon comes out over the equator, the line where the Earth’s surface and the sky seem to meet.
The penumbral eclipse will be visible, ie the image will be projected on the moon without covering all the light.
In England you will not be able to watch from the beginning, because the Moon is still under the equator.
