July 27 longest lunar eclipse in 100 years

Solar eclipses occur when the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun, blocking light from the Sun. And the next solar eclipse of 2018 will occur on 11th August this year.

During a partial eclipse, only a fragment of the moon will obscure the sun's corona.

Sky gazers are all set to witness the second eclipse of the season - a partial solar eclipse today.

On July 27, the red planet Mars will also be at opposition, meaning that the Sun and Mars will lie opposite to each other, keeping the Earth in the middle. But again, something special happens.

"When it's fully engulfed, [the moon] will turn this copper, blood-red color", Petro said. Petro said "It's like the launch of sunrise and sunset on the surface of the sun". Different parts of the globe will have different timings to see both the eclipses, so check out the exact time you can see eclipse in your city.

During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colourful appearance from bright orange to blood red and more rarely dark brown to very dark gray, depending upon the part of the Earth's shadow it would be passing through. This rare celestial event will be visible across Europe, Africa Asia, Australia and South America. It was mostly visible over the open ocean between Australia and Antarctica.

Djokovic 'overwhelmed' after downing Nadal in Wimbledon classic
It was the first time in the Open era that both men's semifinals went past 6-all in the deciding set of a Grand Slam event. But while Anderson and Isner's titanic tussle was more an exercise in totting up aces, this was a cast-iron classic.

Question arises when it comes to differentiating the solar and lunar eclipse. TimeAndDate.com is hosting live stream starting from 2 PM.

Additionally, the eclipse forms two parts, that is the umbra and penumbra.

Another eclipse is Lunar eclipse that will be taking place in this month.

The Moon orbits around the Earth once every 28 days, but the Moon's orbit around Earth, much like Earth's orbit around the Sun is not a ideal circle- it is an elongated oval, or ellipse.

At the point when the two line up perfectly, the Moon clouds the whole Sun, and the skies go dim.

"In shorter [eclipses], the moon won't pass through most of that shadow", Petro said. Astronomers expect that the full Eclipse will last for 1 hour and 43 minutes and the partial Eclipse before and after the total phase of the Eclipse will last 3 hours and 55 minutes.
