Blood moon rises but clouds spoil party for many

Chandra Grahan 2018 Chandra Grahan is slated to be on full moon night

The longest lunar Eclipse of the century opposition of Mars could simultaneously watch the Ukrainians on the night of the 28th of July.

Sky-watchers will also be able to see Mars burning brightly in the sky, looking like an orange-red star.

But Begley doesn't think the world is going to end the night of Friday, July 27 which other end times' theorists have claimed.

It will pass into the shadow of the Earth, blocking the light from the sun and the atmosphere of the Earth will bend the light of the sun onto the moon.

It was also a supermoon - meaning the Earth's natural satellite appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reached its closest point to our planet.

"The reason that the moon turns red is because atmospheric scattering causes red light to pass through the atmosphere and the composition of the atmosphere can change if volcanic eruptions or forest fires occur", Tom Kerss, an astronomer with London's Royal Observatory in Greenwich said.

Today's lunar eclipse will be most visible for many parts of Africa, the Middle East, southern Asia and the Indian Ocean region if the weather cooperates.

When the sun, Earth and moon are all lined up, sun-rays shine on the edges of the Earth.

This marks the second total lunar eclipse this year visible from Australia, with the next one predicted for 2021. The sky show will not be visible from North America, but there's still a way to catch all the action surrounding the "blood moon" online.

Dr Emily Brunsden, director of the University of York's Astrocampus, added that this eclipse was a "micro blood moon". All of Asia (including India), and Eastern Africa will get to watch the entire eclipse including the two partial lunar eclipse.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth lies in between the sun and the moon.

The moon will fill the sky with a spectacular glow and take on a ruddy rust hue that's attractive, and vaguely creepy.

The full eclipse will begin at approximately 9:13 p.m. UTC, which is just 5:13 p.m. EST, making it impossible to see from anywhere in the United States, Canada, Central America, or Greenland. At that time, it came within 34.6 million miles of earth, marking its closest approach in 60,000 years.
