В июле произойдет самое длинное в ХХI веке лунное затмение

In July, a record will happen lunar Eclipse

The moon will take place in the dark zone of the Earth shadow known as the Umbra, which will also give the moon a reddish glow.

In the Eastern hemisphere on the night of 28 July it will be possible to observe a lunar Eclipse, which will be the longest in the 21st century. On Wednesday, June 27, according to EarthSky.

The phase of the total Eclipse will last 1 hour and 43 minutes, while a partial Eclipse that occurs before and after the total phase of the Eclipse will last 3 hours and 55 minutes.

It is noted that the Eclipse will last so long because the Moon will pass directly to the dark zone of the Earth shadow known as the Umbra, which will also give the moon a bloody red glow.

The full moon of July will be held simultaneously with the apogee of the moon, that is when she is at the highest point of the lunar orbit. So this is “smallest” full Moon (as it will be in the most distant point towards the Ground) and the longest lunar Eclipse, because of the “small” size of the Moon will take longer to pass through the Earth’s shadow.

According to astronomers, the Eclipse will begin at 21.24, Kyiv time. At 22.30 the Moon will completely enter the earth’s shadow and turns red. The peak of the Eclipse will occur in 23.22 and 00.13 Eclipse will end.

Recall that scientists have discovered how the Moon is “stretched” a day on Earth.

Earlier it was reported that near the moon recorded unknown objects. Three strange object fly past Earth satellite and disappear quickly.
