Blood moon across world United Kingdom left disappointed

A blood moon rises over Cairo Friday

"I have been excited since last week to see the celestial event".

Although the lunar eclipse is expected to last 103 minutes, observers in the United Kingdom and Ireland will not be able to catch the start as the moon will still be below the horizon.

Airport operator Aena has announced that the number of passengers coming to Spain has risen 6.8% more than last year.In ... "If you were on the Moon, you would see a total solar eclipse as the Earth would be blocking the Sun". In eastern Asia, Australia, and parts of the western Pacific, the eclipse will be visible before sunrise on July 28, as the moon sets.

"However instead of turning black as you might expect, the atmosphere of the Earth bends the light of the sun onto the moon causing it to turn a deep red colour".

Priyanka Gupta, facilitator from Delhi's Manav Rachna School, showed various lunar eclipse slides and answered the children's queries.

It was also a supermoon - meaning the Earth's natural satellite appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reached its closest point to our planet.

After that, the shadow of the Earth will slowly retreat across the lunar surface until the partial eclipse comes to completion at 11.19pm.

How often does a blood moon occur? Although we haven't had much luck in catching the creatures from the Red Planet, here is our chance to catch the planet itself, well, in the night sky.

"Totality will last for 103 minutes, making it the longest eclipse of the 21st century!" the Royal Astronomical Society said.

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.

Total lunar eclipses are a rare occurrence. But they must clock 72 years to observe the eclipse.

After weeks of uninterrupted sunshine and cloudless skies, thunderstorms swept across swathes of the United Kingdom on Friday, veiling what was said to be the longest celestial event in the 21st century.
