Blood Moon 2018 Total lunar eclispe

The total lunar eclipse, producing what's known as a "blood moon" for the reddish hue it produces, will be visible from eastern Africa, the Middle East parts of Europe, Asia and Australia.

The local times of the eclipse are available at (remember to put your place or country in the search box).

During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears to be red because it lines up perfectly with the Earth and sun such that the Earth's shadow totally blocks the sun's light.

The total lunar eclipse will be preceded and followed by partial eclipses. Two partial solar eclipses will take place on 12 July and 11 August 2018.

On July 27, Moon will pass through the central part of the Earth's shadow. From within the umbra, all direct sunlight is blocked by Earth as in the case of a total lunar eclipse.

This period of total eclipse lasted for one hour 46.4 minutes.

Sunscreen, which often comes off while swimming or playing in the ocean, bleaches the reefs which gives them a lighter appearance and can also contribute to their death.

The total eclipse is set to last for one hour 43 minutes, but a partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours.

This July full moon and July lunar apogee - the moon's most distant point from Earth in its monthly orbit - both fall on the same date. The Earth's atmosphere filters out most of the sun's blue light, so the moon looks red.

According to the Science News, Nigeria will experience total lunar eclipse, which would be fully visible in Lagos.

A tropical storm internationally named "Maria" is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Sunday night or Monday morning, heralding a bigger weather event-a total lunar eclipse at the end of the month.

Depending on atmospheric conditions, this could be an especially dark total eclipse.

For people to be able to inhabit the Moon and do regular activities there, such as working, making a family, and so on, they would require both water and oxygen, but also fuel and equipment to construct habitats and facilities. It is no harm to watch the spectacle with a naked eye.
