Don’t miss the week’sDeep Red 🌑 on the 27  July

The  Full moon will turn blood Red on 27 th as the longest total lunar Eclipse Of The century takes place.in the  skies in Australia ,Africa.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s innermost shadow.

When this happens, the moon turns rusty orange or deep red in color and is how it earned the nickname of a blood moon eclipse.

The red moon will pair well with Mars, which reaches opposition just before the eclipse and will also appear orange or red in color.

  1. Dear S.D.R.,

    Will look out on July 27th. Hope it will happen when United States see the moon [ I mean in middle of night ]. Wish I had a time line.

    Thanks, anyway, Rani.

  3. Thanks Rani. Here in the US we will not be able to see the total Lunar eclipse. We will have to travel to South America, Europe or Australasia.
    We will be able to see Mars though when it comes close to earth the latter part of July – 38.5 million miles away.
    I have seen a total lunar eclipse before and it is a sight to behold.
