Here's what the partial lunar eclipse looked like over Kent

Attention Sky Lovers Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible In India on July 16 and 17

Attention Sky Lovers Lunar Eclipse Will Be Visible In India on July 16 and 17

At the time of Wednesday's lunar eclipse - but 50 years earlier - Apollo 11 was heading for the Moon, carrying the first humans to walk on the lunar surface.

Incredible images showed the "Half-Blood Moon" nearing its full height above the London skyline on Tuesday night. During a total lunar eclipse, the moon has a blood red effect, which is not in the case of a partial eclipse.

Unfortunately, North America will not be able to see the eclipse as it occurs during the daytime with the moon below the horizon.

Provided there are clear skies, the eclipse can be seen in the United Kingdom from Moon rise, which begins between 21:00 and 22:00 BST depending on where you are.

If you're hoping to catch the whole five-hour phenomenon, it begins at 2:45am as the moon starts to phase into the outer edge of the Earth's shadow.

In Germany the spectacle is most likely to be admired in the south, though there is a possibility it will be seen around the country depending on tonight's weather conditions, say meteorologists.

Wait, what? Mercedes-Benz X-Class to be discontinued, report suggests
Owners of the Nissan Navara-based pickup could easily wheel in a pair of bicycles into the bed of the X-Class and call it a day. Stuttgart had ruled out the United States as a market as that is the domain of the full-sized pick-up truck.

It is only when the moon enters the inner umbral shadow that we see Earth's natural satellite change color - and the further it enters the umbral shadow, the deeper the eclipse and color.

Unfortunately, tonight's event will be the last lunar eclipse of any kind this year. When the Moon is fully covered by Earth's shadow, it is called a full lunar eclipse, but when only a small portion of the moon appears dark due to incomplete overlapping, it is called a partial lunar eclipse. It often stays visible, lit by daylight that passes through Earth's atmosphere.

India will witness the next total lunar eclipse on May 26, 2021. For central and eastern Asia and Australia, the eclipse will still be in progress when the moon sets during the dawn hours of 17 July.

Unlike solar eclipses which occur only during a new moon lunar eclipses appear with a full moon.

At that occurrence, the new moon blocked a hundred percent of the Sun for a few minutes as seen from parts of Argentina and Chile.

The first men to land on the moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, planted the American flag on the moon's surface on July 20, 1969, making the July moon one of historical significance.
