Rare blood Moon spectacle TOMORROW night

The next total lunar eclipse will occur

The two researchers theorize that major asteroid impacts, which frequently occurred in the solar system when the moon was still young, could have transferred primitive organisms - such as the ancient fossilized cyanobacteria discovered on Earth and dated back to 3.5 billion and 3.8 billion years ago - from our planet to its satellite. Also, the Eclipse can be seen, while in the rest of Africa, Europe, and other parts of Asia, Australia, Eastern part of South America.

The eclipse happens when the sun, earth and moon line up exactly in a straight line. The moon will appear reddish and not black because some of the sun's light gets bent around earth's edge and falls on the moon.

Looking like a bright star, it will appear just after 11pm before fading from sight a few minutes later.

The moon will also be at the farthest point on its orbit from Earth, making its movement across the sky slower from our perspective, thus spending longer in the dark. But there are occasions when they align with the earth in between the sun and the moon.

"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, told Reuters.

"There is no reason to believe that blood moons foretell doom", said Massey. The total eclipse is expected between 21.20 and 22.13.

Red light has a better chance of doing so because shorter wavelengths of light are scattered more efficiently by the molecules in our atmosphere and red has a relatively long wavelength.

While the eclipse will begin at 10.44 pm in India (17:14 UTC), the total phase will extend from 1 am to 2.43 am (19:30 to 21:13 UTC).

Skywatchers in the US, however, will not be able to enjoy the rare event, unless they are willing to travel.

What time is the Blood Moon eclipse this week?

The Weather Channel has announced that it will host a livestream of the event on its app, available for iOS and Android, beginning at 4 p.m. EDT on July 27.

Another factor that is playing a role in the eclipse's duration is the path that the moon is taking through the Earth's shadow.

Dr Brown said: "As the entire eclipse will occur when the moon is fairly close to the horizon, the main thing to ensure is that you have a clear sightline to the south east".

During a sunset or sunrise, sunlight reaching our eyes has passed through a lot more atmospheric gas, and this effectively filters out the blues and makes the light appear orange or even red.

Unlike a solar eclipse, both the eclipsed moon and Mars can be viewed safely without eye protection. The planet witnessed the longest eclipse of the previous century on July 16, 2000, lasting for 1 hour, 46 minutes and 24 seconds.
