  • Planetarium to make arrangements for viewing Blood Moon

'There are different types of lunar eclipse but a total eclipse is the most spectacular and is the only type that causes the moon to appear red'. "The totality itself will last for an hour and 43 minutes".

This event is set to be the longest lunar eclipse of the century.

He pointed out that the moon's appearance greatly depended on atmospheric conditions around the Earth at the time of the eclipse. Extra pollutants in the atmosphere may enhance the vibrancy of the moon's apparently color as well.

Special arrangements have also been made at the Lifelong Learning Institute for seeing the lunar eclipse and Mars opposition. The darkest part of Earth's shadow, the umbra, can be pictured as a cone extending from Earth in the opposite direction to the sun. Furthermore, the Moon will be at apogee, the farthest from the Earth in its orbit, on July 27 and will be moving at a slower speed in its orbit. In a tenuous interpretation of the Bible, a select group of onlookers are propounding the belief that Friday's lunar eclipse will bring with it an apocalypse.

A lunar eclipse can be seen from Earth at night. "The second phase of the partial lunar eclipse will be seen until 3.49 am". Although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight reaches the moon.

The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere. The Moon will start to turn red from about 5.30 am.
