Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the Century- Get Ready for a Rare Astronomical Event
Thousands of skywatchers are preparing for the next rare celestial event. The Total Lunar Eclipse of July 27-28 is the next biggest astronomical phenomenon this year.
This is the second and last total lunar eclipse of 2018.
What’s more interesting?
The July 2018 full moon presents the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100) on the night of July 27-28, 2018, lasting for a whopping 1 hour and 43 minutes.
So, the Moon will be totally eclipsed for about 103 minutes. From beginning to end, it will last for 6 hours and 14 minutes.
This lunar eclipse is primarily visible from the world’s Eastern Hemisphere (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand). South America, at least in part, can watch the final stages of the eclipse just after sunset July 27, whereas New Zealand will catch the beginning stages of the eclipse before sunrise July 28. North America, most of the Arctic and much of the Pacific Ocean will miss out entirely.
