Sorry, no lunar eclipse for you, Sudbury

When and where to watch the Blood Moon in Sweden When and where to watch the Blood Moon in Sweden

A rare total lunar eclipse - expected to be the longest in the 21st century - is set to take place on Friday that will see the Earth's natural satellite turn blood red.

Seen best along the southern hemisphere, many stargazers were disappointed by cloudy skies.

From the Cape of Good Hope to the Middle East, and from the Kremlin to Sydney Harbour, thousands of people turned their eyes to the stars to watch the moon which turned dark before shining orange, brown and crimson as it moved into the earth's shadow.

Check this page closer to 3 p.m. Friday for a look at how the world is viewing the lunar eclipse.

This will be the second and last lunar eclipse of 2018.

This is estimated to be the longest total lunar eclipse for the next century, until June 9, 2123. As an extra gift, Mars will also be at its brightest, accounting for two red lights in the sky.

Lunar eclipses happen when the earth sits directly in between the sun and full moon, blocking the sun's light from hitting the moon and therefore shifting how the night sky appears on Earth.

Mars will be closest to Earth around 1 a.m. July 31, at 35.8 million miles away.

Trump 'open' to visiting Moscow for meeting with Putin
I am ready for that. "And I am ready to go to Washington, if relevant conditions for work will be created there". If the Trump folks were unclear on this, they should have consulted every other president before them.

At 12.19am, the moon will be out of the earth's umbral shadow and the observable eclipse will be over. Parts of Europe, Eastern Africa, Australia, and South America will see different phases of the eclipse, but will miss out on parts of the penumbral, partial, or total phases.

Pitts said that the "blood moon" phrase was only recently attached to the phenomenon.

Millions of Americans watched the first solar eclipse visible from the USA since 1979 last August.

On the night of July 27, the total lunar eclipse will coincide with another relatively rare celestial phenomenon known as the Mars opposition.

Amazon's growth is leaving the shop behind
More impressively, the North American retail businesses operating profit jumped to $1.84 billion from $436 million past year . Amazon boxes are seen stacked for delivery in the Manhattan borough of New York City, U.S., January 29, 2016.

You can watch it online with The Virtual Telescope Project or Slooh.

What time does Friday's lunar eclipse start?

Although it won't look almost as large as the blood moon, Mars will be its largest if you're looking through a telescope and close to its maximum brightness in our sky. To stay safe, kids and adults too must not see it with naked eyes.

When the three celestial bodies are perfectly lined up, however, the Earth's atmosphere scatters blue light from the sun while refracting or bending red light onto the moon, usually giving it a rosy blush.
