Longest Total Lunar Eclipse will be on July 27

Time says that the event can be seen all over the world in regions in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America, and the Middle East.

Mathematically, the longest an eclipse could ever last is one hour 47 minutes, and the longest eclipse of the 20th Century (1901-2000) happened on July 16, 2000.

The eclipse, which will take place overnight from July 27 to 28, will occur during the next full moon.

During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears to be red because it lines up perfectly with the Earth and sun such that the Earth's shadow totally blocks the sun's light. "Thus, the Moon will pass through the center of the Earth's shadow", he added. Interestingly, this is the second total lunar eclipse of 2018. The entire lunar eclipse will last for an hour and 43 minutes following a partial eclipse for another hour.

This period of total eclipse lasted for one hour 46.4 minutes.

Meanwhile, there is a twist: the expected astronomical event has reignited the blood moon prophecy. Two partial solar eclipses will take place on 12 July and 11 August 2018. The moon will take shades from right orange to blood red.

The idea of a "blood moon" serving as an omen of the coming of the end times comes from the Book of Joel, where it is written "the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and bad day of the Lord comes".
