Saturday, July 28, 2018, is THE day that the Blood Moon will be taking over our Aussie sky, and it is set to be this century's longest total eclipse!

Talking to The Express Tribune, Abdul Rashid, director climate data processing centre, Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said that the lunar eclipse will be witnessed from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Antarctica.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the Earth's shadow. "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great quake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".

According to The Weather Network, from start to finish, the total lunar eclipse where the Moon will appear completely red, will last for 103 minutes. Putting to rest all apprehensions about the risks associated with viewing the eclipse with a naked eye, Duari said, "No special filters are required to protect our eyes like those used for watching solar eclipses". However, it won't be visible from North America.

However the brightness of the red colour depends on how dirty the atmosphere is due to volcanic eruptions - and experts don't believe this particular blood moon will display a strong red.

NASA says that a lunar eclipse over 100 minutes will occur on Friday, making it the longest lunar eclipse of the century.

Although the moon is in Earth's shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon.

"The moon will start changing shape as it enters the shadow of the Earth at 20h24". However, they shouldn't sweat it because their robotic spacecraft, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, will experience it first-hand.
