Total lunar eclipse expected on July 28

BLOOD MOON

The eclipse would be visible in India, parts of South America, a large portion of Africa, West Asia, and Central Asia.

Mathematically, the longest an eclipse could ever last is one hour 47 minutes, and the longest eclipse of the 20th Century (1901-2000) happened on July 16, 2000.

The first lunar eclipse this year took place on January 31.

Lunar eclipses occur when the sun, Earth and the moon line up casting the earth's shadow on the moon.

The partial lunar eclipse will begin near around 11.54 pm Indian Standard Time (IST), and on 28 July, the total eclipse will start at 1 am.

The eclipse will take place at or around midnight for Madagascar and the Middle East. Europe and Africa will view it sometime between sunset and midnight on 27 July, whereas most of Asia, Indonesia and Australia will view it in the morning - sometime between midnight and sunrise on 28 July. The U.S. will miss out on the lunar eclipse because the moon is set to pass above Canada before crossing the Atlantic Ocean toward Northern Europe.

As with previous similar eclipses, the Moon will take on a coppery-orange colour before disappearing completely into the shadow of the Earth.

This period of total eclipse lasted for one hour 46.4 minutes.

According to Mikayilov, the lunar eclipse will be fully visible in Azerbaijan.

Meanwhile, there is a twist: the expected astronomical event has reignited the blood moon prophecy.

The rare event occurs when Mars reaches its closest point to the sun as the same time as Earth's orbit brings it directly between the two. As with most lunar eclipses, the moon appeared red during the April 15, 2014, eclipse. (Philippine time) and will end at 7:30 a.m.
