Once in a century lunar eclipse

  • The eclipse will not be visible from North America

This time around, the eclipse will occur when the moon is furthest from the earth, making it a micro-moon and thus a blood micro moon eclipse. While we've got the times ready, unfortunate for most likely readers of this article, this eclipse won't be visible from most of North America!

According to the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa (ASSA), most of Africa, Europe, the Middle East and eastern Asia will see this eclipse.

A total lunar eclipse happens when the moon and the sun are on opposite sides of the Earth, according to NASA.

Fiery Mars will add to the spectacle as it appears directly below the blood moon at close to its maximum brightness. At that time, Earth blocks most of the sunlight that would usually hit the moon, so that much of the moon is in Earth's shadow.

When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it will darken, but it won't disappear.

Come Friday and the world is set to behold a spectacle of the rarest of rare variety-the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century. "You will see the sunrise and sunset of the Earth lighting up the surface of the Moon - over 350,000 km away". While the partial lunar eclipse is expected to end by 3.49 am, and the penumbral eclipse would end by about 4.58 am. But the night-time transformation of the moon into a bloody-red orb can be seen by anyone on the Earth below while it is night.

"Meanwhile the greatest eclipse will be visible at 01-22 PST on July 28 which is going to be a historical moment", the PMD official said.

A super blue blood moon rises behind the 2,500-year-old Parthenon temple on the Acropolis of Athens, Greece, on January 31, 2018.

"The eclipse will already be underway when the moon rises above the south eastern horizon at about 8.50pm and the total eclipse will end by about 10.15pm".
