Since the moon is at the point in its orbit with one of the farthest distances to Earth, it will be small enough to hide completely in our planet's shadow, making the total lunar eclipse possible.
Lunar Eclipse July 2018 India timings - Sharing details of the upcoming eclipse, the ministry said, The partial eclipse of the moon will begin at 11.54 PM (IST) on July 27.
The total eclipse ends the next day, Sabat said, precisely at 12:13am, with a totality of 103 minutes, marking the longest total eclipse in the 21st century.
The geographic region of eclipse visibility will be from Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. In particular this can be seen from all over the country when there are no clouds.
The International Space Station, Moon and Mars are the destinations for ESA's human and robotic exploration strategy, using low-Earth orbit for research and demonstrating technology, developing the Orion service module and elements for a gateway around the Moon and sending robotic probes to Mars, such as the ExoMars rover that will drill down 2 metres into the surface in search for life. When it comes to the United Kingdom, the eclipse can be observed on July 27, starting in London from 8:49 p.m., in Birmingham from 9 p.m. and in Manchester from 9.06 p.m. The lunar passage will mark the total eclipse of the moon - a celestial event which happens about twice a year on an average.
The people may be able to witness the longest lunar eclipse of the century. This orange and red light gets refracted around the Earth and then it reaches the moon.
When the Moon enters the penumbra, the process is called a "penumbral eclipse", where it would still be visible; however, as the Moon begins entering the umbra, some parts of the Moon will reflect the dark shadow, opposed by the other shiny part of the Moon, the researcher explained.
There are many superstitions regarding eclipses, for example that we should not eat anything during the event or pregnant women should not see it. These are little more than old women's tales.
