Longest lunar eclipse of century expected to visible in Pakistan

Get ready for the century's longest total lunar eclipse on Friday night!

It is, however, expected that citizens of the areas from the central province of Thua Thien - Hue southwards are able to see this curious phenomenon if there will be no rain here.

This event is not to be confused with a total solar eclipse like the one that was visible across a swath of the continental USA last summer.

As we approach this remarkable event, we will tell you what to expect.

"In the middle of a lunar eclipse it can look as if a red planet has taken up residence near the Earth - they are both eerie and attractive and I'll certainly be looking out for it!"

For a total lunar eclipse to happen, the Moon must be full, which means it is directly opposite the Sun, with Earth in between.

That colour is due to sunlight leaking through Earth's atmosphere and reaching the Moon. "While more common than the solar eclipse, the event is nonetheless fairly unusual, with even partial eclipses rarely happening a few times or twice per year and each is only visible from a portion of the Earth." 3. A partial lunar eclipse will take place July 16, 2019.

"There is no reason to believe that blood moons foretell doom", said Massey.

Ron DeSantis of the new Democratic breakout star from NY . "And that was reflected in the donors", Trent said. Ocasio-Cortez has caused a stir in Democratic politics since her surprise victory.

"It's called a blood moon because the light from the sun goes through the earth's atmosphere on its way to the moon and the earth's atmosphere turns it red in the same way that when the sun goes down it goes red", Andrew Fabian, professor of astronomy at the University of Cambridge. The event can be observed in a large part of the globe, including in India, where it can be seen after 11.54 pm Indian Standard Time on July 27. It will last around 103 minutes.

Filipinos will have to hope for clear skies at dawn on Saturday to watch the longest blood moon eclipse this century, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

You can see it all around the globe, but the best view will be reserved for the Eastern Hemisphere - New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe, and Africa.

If you saw the most recent solar eclipse (full or partial), you'll remember that the circle of light looks colorless.

Yes, they will. It will be best visible in the eastern regions of Ukraine.

According to the website timeanddate.com, the best time to see it in Sheffield is between the hours of 9.21pm and 10.13pm. For years together, people around the world, from different cultural backgrounds have been believing in some things related to lunar eclipse.

One superstition says that if you get injured during the lunar eclipse then the wound will not stop bleeding.

So there is no risk to damage your eyes with the direct sun rays. Observation won't need a telescope, however, stock up on binoculars would be useful.
