All About The Blood Moon
It is an astronomical phenomenon, which takes place due to a lunar eclipse. As sunlight is seen passing through the atmosphere of the Earth, the gaseous layer seems to change the direction of the rays in a way that the green to violet wavelengths on the visible spectrum are said to disperse more stronger rays than the red. This gives the Moon a reddish hue, and hence this is why it is called the Blood Moon.
How Is This The Longest Total Lunar Eclipse?
It is reported that the Blood Moon that is observed on July 27th will be around 40 minutes longer than the one that took place on January 31st, 2018. This event was also known as the 'Super Blue Blood Moon.'
Where Is The Blood Moon Visible?
On July 27th, 2018, this lunar eclipse is said to be visible to people located in the eastern hemisphere. Places like Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia will be lucky, as these residents will get to witness the blood moon. While residents of Europe and Africa will be able to see the eclipse during the evening, on the other hand, people in Asia and Australia will be able to see it in the early morning hours.
