Starwatch: red marvel that is a lunar eclipse

Australia is getting a Blood Moon this weekend

On the night of July 27, some people will be able to watch the 21st century's longest lunar eclipse, lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes.

According to The Weather Network, from start to finish, the total lunar eclipse where the Moon will appear completely red, will last for 103 minutes. This day will also be a 'Blood Moon, ' where the earth's satellite takes on a reddish hue.

The longest total lunar eclipse of the century is happening on Friday, but we won't be able to see it here. However, the partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours.

The total eclipse will last up to 2.43 hours.

"This smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth's shadow than does a full moon that is closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit". It will also be visible in the region covering Middle East, Australia, Asia, Russia but will not be visible in Africa, Europe, east of South America and Antarctica.

When the white light from the Sun hits the Earth's atmosphere the blue colours in the white are scattered, meaning only the red colours will hit the moon giving it an eerie tint. So, from start to finish, the moon spends almost 4 hours crossing under Earth's dark shadow. During an annular eclipse, NASA uses ground and space instruments to view the corona when the moon blocks the sun's glare. The partial lunar eclipse involves the southern half of the moon passing into the earth's shadow, he added.
