NASA said the totality of the lunar eclipse will last an hour and 43 minutes. If the summer weather cooperates, the eclipse will be visible from the Netherlands. The total time of the entire eclipse will be nearly four hours.
Unlike a solar eclipse, both the eclipsed moon and Mars can be viewed safely without eye protection.
"I spoke with Mills Observatory and unfortunately they will not be opening for the lunar eclipse". The time of greatest eclipse will be at 4:21 p.m. The partial eclipse will start again around 3:49 am.
However, during a lunar eclipse the glow from the moon is not almost as strong.
Because of this, it gives the moon a reddish-orange colour on the moon, which is why it's called a blood moon. In fact, it will be easier to look at than a normal full moon because it won't be as bright due to the lack of sunlight. The shadow cast by the moon is much smaller than that produced by our own planet.
The BM Birla Science Centre said the eclipse itself would start a little before midnight at about 11.15pm IST.
"On the 27th July, Mars will be at its closest to the Earth, with the moment of opposition itself being in the early morning, although here in the United Kingdom we'll have to wait until nighttime". Although U.S. residents won't be able to see the eclipse, there's still a reason to be excited.
Rare blood moon to rise in sky on Friday during longest eclipse this century
A lunar eclipse is pictured over the ocean in Oceanside, Calif., Jan. 31, 2018.
"The blue light as it passes through the atmosphere is scattered more strongly, so you're left with the red light skimming over the Earth when the Earth is between the moon and the sun".
The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere. Eastern time, making it too light outside to see the red moon.
A partial lunar eclipse happens when only a part of the moon enters Earth's shadow.
The first part or phase of lunar eclipse will see the moon fall under the earth's shadow.
A lunar eclipse usually lasts for a few hours.
And keep in mind to try and catch the event as soon as you can because the moon will only be in a state of total eclipse until 11.15 pm when it will start to emerge and regain its normal appearance.
Google parent Alphabet reveals better-than-expected earnings
Net income came in at $US3.2 billion, down from $US3.5 billion in the same quarter of 2017, largely due to the European fine. In the past, Google earned as much as 97 percent of its revenues from ads, but that number has been falling.
