The longest eclipse of the "bloody moon" will take place in July

Astronomers say that the full lunar eclipse coming in July will be the longest in this century.

The full moon and the full lunar eclipse will coincide on the night of July 27-28, 2018. Astronomers promise us a "bloody moon", which will be the longest complete lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The eclipse can be observed all over the world.

Experts say that the eclipse will last 1 hour and 43 minutes (40 minutes longer than the previous "blood moon" in January 2018). Usually within a year two lunar eclipses take place, but not all of them turn out to be complete. The future eclipse lasts so long due to the fact that the full moon will coincide with the lunar apogee (the Moon will be at the furthest point from the Earth of the lunar orbit). If the Moon is as far away from the Earth as possible and moves more slowly, it needs more time to cross the Earth's shadow.

The phenomenon of the "bloody moon" implies a change in the color of the satellite during the eclipse, when it is completely in the shadow of the Earth. Stretched light waves from sunsets and sunrises on the Earth are reflected from the surface of the moon, which gives it dark red shades.
