Century’s longest lunar eclipse to be visible from India on July 27
05 July 2018, 08:02 | Edward Lowe
The world will witness the longesttotal lunar eclipse of the 21st century, in combination with Mars opposition and conjunction. A lunar eclipse, which occurs when the sun, Earth, and moon line up so that Earth's shadow is cast on the moon, always happens within two weeks of a solar eclipse; in this case, there will be partial solar eclipses on July 12 and August 11.
According to NASA, on July 27, a lunar eclipse will be fully visible for 1 hour and 43 minutes, which will possibly be the longest of this century till now. People in the United States lucked out with last year's total solar eclipse - partial eclipses simply don't have the same effect - but this doesn't mean they can't enjoy this year's lunar phenomenon.
The U.S. will miss out again with this upcoming celestial phenomenon, as it will be visible in one of the other five continents.
The eclipse will be completely visible over Eastern Africa and Central Asia, and will be partially seen over Western Africa, Eastern Asia, South America, Europe, and Australia. This also makes it the longest time an eclipse will be partially visible between the years 2011 and 2020.

A blood moon takes place when Earth blocks the light of the sun from the moon.
Director, Research and Academic, MP Birla Institute of Fundamental Research, MP Birla Planetarium, Debiprosad Duari told PTI, "Viewers in India are lucky since the eclipse, both partial and the total, will be entirely visible from all parts of the country".
In India, the partial eclipse will begin on July 13 at 07:18 am and the last location to see the partial eclipse would be at 08:13 am.
The previous total lunar eclipse on January 31, lasted 1 hour and 16 minutes when the moon passed to the south of shadow's centre; and the next total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019 will be only for 1 hour and 2 minutes because it'll pass to the north of the shadow's centre. Solar eclipses are unsafe to watch without certified, special glasses, but lunar eclipses don't require special head gear.
The blood moon is also supposed to herald the end of times (boo!), according to some doomsday prophets.
But on the night of July 27, the Full Moon would be near its apogee, the farthest point from the Earth in its orbit around the Earth, and it would be the smallest full moon of the year.
An eclipse of the moon takes place only at full moon. A blue moon is second full moon amid a calendar month.
To have an opportunity to view a planet so near...well let's just say it will be more spectacular than any eclipse! "One does not need a telescope to watch the eclipse, although a good pair of binoculars will enhance the experience", Duarisaid.
