ANAS: Lunar eclipse to take place in July

The total eclipse is set to last for one hour 43 minutes, but a partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours.

You will then be able to see the eclipse at key moments - when the earth's shadow begins to cover the moon, when the moon turns red, and when the shadow begins to recede, all of which will happen over a period of four hours.

People from most parts of the world were not able to witness both the lunar eclipses one after the other. It is no harm to watch the spectacle with a naked eye.

The lunar eclipse will be visible to most areas in Africa, Middle East, South Asia, and the Indian Ocean region, as quoted in AJC website, July 2. It is said the full eclipse will last over an hour and 30 minutes, whereas the partial eclipse would last over an hour.

Ariana Grande Responds to Pete Davidson's Joke About the Manchester Bombing
Do you understand where Ariana is coming through on this one? Hodgson also said she believed Grande "would be horrified too". When one fan tweeted that Davidson's joke was "not amusing , it's just rude", Grande offered a thoughtful reply.

Should skies remain clear, the event will be visible from everywhere in France, with the total eclipse set to be visible from Paris from 22h20. The total eclipse would start at 1.00 am July 28. From start to finish, the moon will take almost 4 hours to cross the Earth's dark umbral shadow, EarthSky reported.

However, those who live in the United States will have to travel to catch a glimpse of the once-in-a-century lunar eclipse. The moon will take shades from right orange to blood red. The moon loses the brightness normally caused by the reflection of the sun's light and takes on an eerie, reddish glow, giving the lunar eclipse moon the nickname of blood moon.

In spite of this the upcoming total lunar eclipse counts as a whopper because the most distant and smallest full moon of the year passes through the centre of the earth's shadow, which is at its widest in July.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the path of the Earth's orbit lines up directly between the sun and the moon.
