During a total Eclipse of the Moon, the range of shading and the intensity of colour vary enormously. While, a section of scientists have also indicated the possibility of high tides and sea erosion along Kerala coast.
We will witness the longest lunar eclipse of the century on the night of Friday, July 27 2018, an event that will see the moon in the Earth's shadow for a period of 1 hour 43 minutes. From the moon's vantage point, the Earth would appear to be surrounded by a 25,000-mile-around ring of fire.
"When the Moon is entering the Earth's shadow, another interesting phenomenon appears".
The total eclipse will end by 2.45 am on Saturday. The partial eclipse will begin at 11.55 pm.
Mars will be easily visible with the naked eye, if the weather permits, as it will be extremely close to the moon for the duration of the eclipse. Before 2017, there was an 8 percent partial eclipse on Dec.31, 2009, but, for a Total Eclipse of a Blue Moon, we have to go all the way back to March 31, 1866.
It depends partly on "how cloudy or transparent those parts of the Earth's atmosphere are which enable sunlight to reach the moon", he told AFP.
As this light passes through Earth's atmosphere it will tend to refract, or bend, slightly.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon orbits into the central part of the Earth s shadow. A lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and the Moon, casting a shadow over its satellite.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest in almost 60,000 years: 34.6 million miles.
In the never-ending search for life beyond Earth, astronomers tend to look far, far away, but it seems our closest neighbor may have once been a habitable world, too.
"All eclipses are spectacular", the society's Robert Massey added.
For those in Australia, New Zealand and eastern Asia, the height of the eclipse will be visible before the moon sets early in the morning on July 28. While all events will not be visible worldwide, India will fall under the zone in which the blood moon, lunar eclipse will be visible. "Lunar Eclipse is a mere celestial event and has no harmful effects on human beings".
So-called penumbral eclipsing is typically very faint and most people would not notice it without knowing it was happening.
It's going to be the longest lunar eclipse of the twenty-first century, and a large proportion of people on Earth will be able to catch a glimpse of it.
Thanks to the moon's more volcanically active past, they pointed out, there may have been two periods (one 4 billion years ago, just after the moon formed, and the next 3.5 billion years ago) when the moon may have been a bit more habitable for periods of a few million years. The researchers for this study propose that in the early days of our solar system, it's possible that meteorites that came in contact with Earth and "blasted off its surface" could have also landed on the moon.
