'Blood moon' to dazzle sky gazers for 21st Century's longest lunar eclipse

Clouds obscure the view for people gathered to see the "blood moon", the longest total eclipse of the moon this century, on Primrose Hill in London.

The fullest eclipse, at 2022 GMT, will be visible from Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East, much of Asia and Australia.

When the three celestial bodies are perfectly lined up, however, the Earth's atmosphere scatters blue light from the sun while refracting or bending red light onto the moon, usually giving it a rosy blush. Picture: AAPThe blood moon peaks behind the Colosseum in Rome.

This is what gives the phenomenon the name "blood moon", though Mark Bailey of the Armagh Observatory in Northern Ireland said the colour can vary greatly.

Curiosity and awe have greeted a complete lunar eclipse, the longest one of this century and visible in much of the world. "This does not herald the apocalypse: seeing a lunar eclipse and Mars in the sky is something people should enjoy rather than worry about mediaeval superstitions".

As it rose, during this total eclipse, Earth's natural satellite turned a striking shade of red or ruddy brown.

When is the next lunar eclipse?

Avid astronomers and amateur stargazers the world over were treated to an incredible lunar light show when the moon transformed from its usual bright color to an orb of burned orange and red for almost two hours.

Also, those in the United Kingdom will miss a section of the eclipse due to the moon being below our horizon when it starts, which gives south-eastern observers a slightly better advantage than the north-western ones.

When the moon moved into the conical shadow of the earth, it went from being illuminated by the sun to being dark.

Path of the Moon into Earth's Shadows and the times during the Total Lunar Eclipse on July 28 from Brunei DarussalamLooking about West at around 2am from Brunei Darussalam, the Blood Moon and Mars will put on a stellar show on July 28.

One reason why this eclipse is lasted so long is because it occurred when the moon is near apogee, or the point in its orbit when it is farthest away from the Earth, making it appear smaller than normal.

The entire eclipse can be viewed from Brunei until moon set at 6.23am, Hazarry said. It's a combination of selene - for the Moon - and helion - for the Sun.

Two very similar passages appear later in the New Testament, in the books of Acts and Revelations. The planetarium has organised a "Moon Carnival" for people in the national capital to watch the eclipse, PTI reported. You don't need a telescope to watch a total lunar eclipse, at least NASA believes that.

    At the very least, if the Moon did harbor life, it raises the odds of finding it elsewhere in the solar system as well. In London, moonrise is at 20.49, so the moon will already be in the shadow of Earth as darkness falls over the capital.
