Longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century visible in the Netherlands

The eclipse will not be visible from North America Saudi Arabia to witness 21st century's longest total lunar eclipse on Friday

The spectacle will be visible across Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, but not North America. Additionally, if they wait a few more months, they'll be able to witness a combo of a total lunar eclipse and Supermoon on January 21st, 2019. And because of this shadow, the surface of the moon appears red, giving it the name of Blood Moon.

NIGHT sky watchers are in for a treat this Friday evening - cloudless skies permitting - as the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21 century is expected to occur. According to Earthsky.org, since Mars is opposite the sun in the sky, it will look like a full, red moon. From 21h30 until 23h13, it will be totally eclipsed, but faintly lit by light refracted by the Earth's atmosphere, which should give it a pale reddish colour.

The full moon in July is also known as "mini-moon" because it is at the farthest distance from the Earth and seems small.

According to NASA, the partial eclipse will begin at 7.24 p.m. CET, with the total eclipse starting at 8.30 p.m. CET and ending at 10.13 p.m CET. Only North America misses the show this time.

Taken together, this celestial event will last about an hour and 43 minutes, but a partial Eclipse before and after totality will last an hour and six minutes. This is still due to different Rayleigh scattering, allowing for the different apparent color of the moon.

Jose Mourinho demands 'best' of Cup hero Paul Pogba

He pointed out that the moon's appearance greatly depended on atmospheric conditions around the Earth at the time of the eclipse. As a result, the planet, which is at its closest to Earth - and therefore, its brightest - since 2003, will live up to its nickname and appear red as well.

Lunar fans across the United Kingdom will be able to catch a glimpse of the spectacular event during which the moon's surface is stained red. During a total lunar eclipse, Earth blocks direct sunlight from reaching the Moon.

In fact, such a solar eclipse had last occurred on December 13, 1974, and the next one like it will be seen only in 2080.

In Perth, the total eclipse will become visible around 3:30 a.m. local time.

Coming Friday and the world is set to see an exhibition of the rarest of a special assortment-the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century.
