New Delhi:

The Earth Science Ministry yesterday said that the total lunar eclipse will take place on July 27-28 with a total of 1 hour and 43 minutes, which is the longest in this century.

Partial eclipse of the Moon will start from July 27 at 11:54 (Indian Standard Time). The moon will gradually be covered with the shadow of the earth and the ascendant phase will start on July 28 at 1 a.m.

Total eclipse will last for 2.43 hours. Then the moon will gradually start moving out of the earth’s shadow and partial eclipse will end on July 28 at 3:49.

In this special eclipse, the moon will pass through the middle part of the earth’s umbilical shadow. Apart from this, the Moon will be on the Apogee, the Earth will move at its lowest distance in the orbit, on July 27 and in its orbit gradually.

To travel in this slow-moving full moon, the long shorter cone of the Earth will find longer distances.

A statement of MOES states, “The total lunar eclipse will occur on July 27-28, with a total duration of 1 hour and 43 minutes. The period takes the longest eclipse from this century (2001 to 2100 AD).”

This kind of total lunar eclipse occurred on July 16, 2000 for a total length of 1 hour 46 minutes and for the total duration of 1 hour 40 minutes on June 15, 2011.

The entire eclipse will also be visible from all parts of India. Eclipse will also be visible in areas covering Australia, Asia, and Russia – excluding North America, Africa, Europe, South America and Antarctica.

On 27 July, the red planet Mars will also be in opposition, which means that the sun and Mars will lie in the middle of the earth opposite each other.

As a result Mars is coming closer to the Earth, which makes it look luminous and it will be seen from evening till morning until the end of July. The bright Mars will be very close to the Moon on July 27-28, and the naked eye can be seen very easily.

However, the red planet will reach the nearest Earth on July 31. The planet comes closer to Mars and falls in the opposition at an average gap of 2 months when the planet comes closer to the Earth and becomes bright.

Mars protests in August 2003 brought two planets to the nearest distance in nearly 60,000 years. On July 31, Mars’s approach will bring two planets closer and from 2003, Mars will be the fastest visible.
