This occurs only when the sun, earth, and moon are aligned, and when the moon is full.
"The blue light as it passes through the atmosphere is scattered more strongly, so you're left with the red light skimming over the Earth when the Earth is between the moon and the sun".
This total lunar eclipse also coincides with the lunar apogee when the moon is farthest from the earth.
Some Christians believe the celestial event could mark the start of disaster, based on a passage from the biblical Book of Joel, which reads: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the bad day of the Lord comes".
The outcome is generally that a solar eclipse is only seen by a relative few who fall beneath the moon's masking orb.Читайте также: Meghan awards Harry with a public kiss after his polo victory
Stages and time of the lunar eclipse that will be visible in Singapore on July 28, 2018. This slower moving full Moon will take longer time and greater distance of Earth's umbral shadow cone to travel.
Scientists say the reason this lunar eclipse is especially long is that the moon is passing nearly directly through the central part of Earth's shadow. The lunar eclipse will also be visible in India, and this will be a "Blood Moon" as well, where the Earth's satellite takes on a reddish tinge. At the point when this happens, Earth blocks the sunlight that regularly reaches the moon. "We see that red light reflected back towards us". It will be Mars's closest approach to our planet in over a decade so the planet will appear bigger in the sky. This will result in Mars coming close to the Earth, causing it to appear brighter than normal and it will be seen from evening to dawn towards the end of July.

Scientists have perfectly adequate explanations for the phenomenon other than impending armageddon.
"You may see this very eerie-looking deep-red moon rising", said Mr Scagell. Experts explain this by the fact that a red lunar Eclipse has repeatedly been observed before, sometimes in a year occurred two such eclipses. "It's not surprising people were terrified by it".
And unlike solar eclipses, especially the total solar eclipse in August 2017, the lunar eclipse is safe to view with the naked eye or binoculars.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
