South to see special blood moon

Did life once exist on the moon?	 	 	 			A new study suggest the moon may have once had habitable conditions

You do not need any equipment to see the eclipse, but a small telescope or binoculars can be used to see more detail.

Life on the Moon could have originated much as it did on Earth but the more likely scenario is that it would have been brought in by a meteorite, according to Schulze-Makuch.

From start to finish the eclipse will last three hours and 55 minutes and totality will last one hour and 43 minutes - the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

To figure out precisely when the eclipse will hit your area, you can calculate it at Timeanddate.com. Additionally, there is strong evidence of a large amount of water in the lunar mantle that is thought to have been deposited very early on in the Moon's formation.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: "It's quite tricky at the moment to be precise but there is a potential for showers to develop across the eastern half of the UK. However it will be quite low and could be hard to see".

NASA, meanwhile, has called out social media hoaxers claiming that Mars will appear as big as the moon during the eclipse.

Astronomer Dr Gregory Brown, from the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, explained: "At total eclipse, rather than turning black as you might expect, the Moon will turn a deep red as light from the Sun is bent onto it by the Earth's atmosphere, just like the lenses of a pair of glasses bend light into a person's eyes". That means "the moon will come inside the shadow of the Earth and will stop receiving the light from the sun", Diego adds.

Planetarium to make arrangements for viewing Blood Moon
The fact that the moon appears so small and takes longer to pass through Earth's shadow is also why the eclipse lasts longer. Those of you in the United Kingdom should look for this eclipse starting in at around 11PM (that's 23:00 hours) local time .

"Theoretically, the moon should disappear since it is blocked by the earth, but this does not happen, because the Earth's inclined position allows light to reach the moon". It's not surprising that some ancient peoples regarded these events as terrifying omens. Blood moon, though, refers to the brightest shade of red, that the Moon will reflect at the height of the lunar eclipse.

Despite all the hypothesizing, however, there are still doubts about life on the Moon.

Fast forward to today and the moon is a barren, desolate rock that doesn't have an atmosphere but a very thin layer of gases in its place, including sodium and potassium. And if it's dirty, he says it might appear darker than usual.

He pointed out that the moon's appearance greatly depended on atmospheric conditions around the Earth at the time of the eclipse.

Dundee's Mills Observatory posted: "This coming Friday (July 27 2018) you will (hopefully) be able to witness the longest eclipse of the 21st century". The organization Slooh is going to be live streaming it here.

In the Philippines, the lunar eclipse will occur on early Saturday dawn, starting at about 1:14 a.m. and will last for about 103 minutes, Raymundo said.
