Lunar eclipses are quite a spectacle to behold, not just for stargazers but also by other everyday people. Tomorrow, July 27, the world will witness another interesting event. And there is something special about this eclipse. It happens to be a “blood moon”.
Can't wait for this event next month - total lunar eclipse on 27 July. The #Moon rises during full eclipse from the UK but that could give amazing views of a red Moon rising into a sky tinged with colour from the opposite sunset.

The phenomenon occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow and takes on a reddish tint, almost like the entire rock was covered in blood. Another thing that makes this eclipse special is that it will be the longest eclipse of the century, being visible for 1hour and 43minutes.
