Blood Moon Eclipse Probably Not A Bad Omen, According To Boring Astrophysicist

Nearly all early peoples around the world used the lunar month (the time between full moons) to keep track of the passage of time and seasons.

"So, from start to finish, the moon takes almost four hours to cross the Earth's dark umbral shadow".

The eclipse will only be visible in the Eastern Hemisphere. The strawberry moon happens in June, when strawberries are ripe for picking.

The total eclipse will include all of the bright colors that a "blood moon" would have. Europe and Africa will witness the eclipse during the evening hours, sometime between sunset and midnight on July 27, according to the reports.

The longest possible lunar eclipse is 1 hour and 47 minutes, according to EarthSky. By 4:21 a.m. the moon will reach the total eclipse and by 5:13 a.m. the eclipse will end.

The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand website shows the total eclipse - or blood moon - starting in New Zealand at a few seconds before 7.30am.

Trump backs down on separating families
Citing a source familiar with the drafting of the order, Reid reported the order does not override the 1993 Flores v. It allows the Department of Homeland Security to detain families together "under present resource constraints".

Skygazers who missed out on January's Super Blue Blood Moon, the first lunar eclipse of 2018, have a good chance of witnessing the next celestial wonder as the eclipse will adorn the skies next month.

While the brightest on the last day of July, Mars will be very bright for a 17 day stretch between July 21 to August 6.

Why it is called a blood moon?

Meanwhile, only parts of South America will get to witness the final stages of the eclipse, and North America, the Arctic, and numerous fish in the Pacific Ocean won't get to see it at all.

The entire event, from start to finish, will last around four hours. In the process, the Earth's shadow over the moon blocks most light radiation.

Mars will be making its closest path to Earth since 2003 at a short 35.7 million miles away, easily visible to the naked eye.
