The moon will turn deep reds or reddish brown during the eclipse because part of the sunlight which goes through Earth's atmosphere will be bent around the edge of the planet and falls onto the moon's surface. A partial eclipse precedes and follows the lunar eclipse, each time lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes.

While stargazers in most of the countries cannot view both the eclipses one after another, the residents of Indian sub-continent can see it clearly with a naked eye.

On July 27, the total eclipse will last for one hour and 43 minutes, while the partial eclipse will stretch for three hours and 55 minutes, according to data from NASA. Know what is the blood moon? The partial eclipse will begin at 11:54 PM IST and the total eclipse will start at 1 AM on July 28. It noted that there would be total lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 and January 21, 2019; partial lunar eclipse on July 16/17, 2019; transit mercury eclipse on November 21, 2019; and penumbral lunar eclipse January 10, 2020.

According to Mikayilov, the lunar eclipse will be fully visible in Azerbaijan.


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. With the light of the moon blocked by earth's shadow, it's the ideal time to view stars and celestial bodies not often visible to the naked eye.

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.

The length of an eclipse is calculated according to the speed at which the Moon will travel across the Earth's shadow, so the further away the Moon is from Earth at the point of eclipse, the longer the eclipse itself.
