Blood moon 2018: One of the most anticipated astronomical events to be seen on July 27 will be seen from all parts of the country. Scientists have described the ‘blood moon’ as the longest lunar eclipse in a century when the moon is visible in red for human naked eyes.
The eclipse will appear in two parts, from which the first total lunar eclipse will occur, then there will be a partial eclipse, of which it will last longer than one hour. According to various reports, this incident can take more than four hours to run its course.
In most countries, Stargazers will not be able to see both eclipse after each other. However, due to the geographical location of the Indian subcontinent, these two eclipses will be visible to the naked eye.
Eclipse will be also visible in South America, Africa, Middle East and Central Asia. It is said that the full eclipse will last for one hour and 30 minutes, whereas partial eclipse will last for more than an hour.
According to NASA, the ‘Blood Moon’ moon lunar on July 27 will be the longest and only four minutes less than the longest lunar eclipse seen from Earth.
‘Blood Moon’ will start with a partial eclipse on July 27 at 11:54 pm IST, and the full eclipse will start around July 1 at 1:00 pm It is being said that around the moon is around its dark 1 Will: It will continue to look like till July 5, July 28 and 2:43. After this the moon will be partially absorbed by 3:49.
Interestingly, on July 27, the Moon will be retrieved from Earth with its most distant point, and it will be the smallest full Moon of the year.
This is the reason why this total lunar eclipse is called ‘blood moon’, due to the fact that the moon’s disc blood will take an orange to red color, depending on the part of the earth’s shadow it will pass away.
According to scientists, it is safe to look directly at the lunar eclipse. During a lunar eclipse, the light from the moon is much less intense than the emission of solar eclipse.
