US won't see upcoming lunar eclipse

US won't see upcoming lunar eclipse

But instead of turning dark like it does in a solar eclipse, atmospheric conditions make the moon appear red.

"Such long duration of total lunar eclipses had occurred on July 16, 2000 for a totality duration of one hour 46 minutes and another on June 15, 2011 for a totality duration of one hour 40 minutes".

Global News will be live-streaming the eclipse for viewers around the world beginning at 3 p.m.

"The total stage of the eclipse will end at 22.13 BST, and by then the Moon will have risen to an altitude of only four degrees, or just about eight times its own diameter, above the south-east horizon", he added. Here's everything you need to know to catch the astrological phenomenon if you're in Italy.

In addition, the Earth is closer to the Sun during the northern hemisphere summer so its shadow is larger than average, he said. Once in a while, Earth lines up directly between the sun and the moon.

Moon has no light of its own.

Hence a black shadow will be seen taking a bite out of the moon.

"During a very dark eclipse the moon may be nearly invisible". We will have to wait for May 26, 2021, to view the next total lunar eclipse in Singapore.

National forecaster Meteo France forecasts clear skies in the east, with patchy light cloud over much of the rest of the country allowing eclipse watchers to get a good view of the celestial event, in which the moon will turn blood red.

The only light on the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere.

According to Hazarry, stargazers should be able to see the red planet appear as a very bright reddish "star" rising on the eastern sky at around 8pm from Brunei. And that is why it's also known as the blood moon. The partial eclipse will begin at 2:24 P.m. - that's when the Earth's shadow will begin to creep across the 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.

While lunar eclipses are treated with curiosity and wonder today, it wasn't always so. At least two lunar eclipses happen every year.

"This is actually nearly as long as a lunar eclipse could be", Prof Tim O'Brien, an astrophysicist at University of Manchester, explained.

No special eye protection is needed as it's a lunar eclipse - just a clear horizon.

People say one should avoid travelling during the eclipse.

However many are now debunking this myth and encouraging people to drink and eat so that people avoid dehydration, headaches, acidity, fatigue etc.

Head media and corporate communications of the Agency, Dr. Felix Ale, told The Guardian: "The Eclipse in Nigeria will start around 6:44pm as partial eclipse and developed into a total eclipse around 7:30pm".

It is set to be the longest eclipse of the 21st century so far and will happen at the same time as Mars reaches "opposition" from Earth.
