Blood moon across world United Kingdom left disappointed


In Italy, the moon was spotted rising over the church of San Giuseppe Falegname while a shining orb was visible above the Chambered Castle in France. - AFP People watch the blood moon rising at Arpoador beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

"It's called a blood Moon because the light from the Sun goes through the Earth's atmosphere on its way to the Moon, and the Earth's atmosphere turns it red in the same way that when the sun goes down it goes red", he said.

The entire eclipse can be viewed from Brunei until moon set at 6.23am, Hazarry said.

According to NASA scientists: "The exact colour that the moon appears depends on the amount of dust and clouds in the atmosphere".

A "blood moon" is seen during a full lunar eclipse in the southern Bavarian village of Raisting, near Munich, Germany, July 27, 2018. The blood moon prophecy predicts the world as we know it will end after a series of four lunar eclipses, which is known as a "tetrad". "This does not herald the apocalypse: seeing a lunar eclipse and Mars in the sky is something people should enjoy rather than worry about mediaeval superstitions". Curiosity and awe have greeted a complete lunar eclipse, the longest one of this century.

This marks the second total lunar eclipse this year visible from Australia, with the next one predicted for 2021.

The blood moon eclipse was the longest of the 21st Century so far.

However, the bending - or refraction - of the rays of light caused by our atmosphere by about half a degree makes it possible to see both.

Parts of Europe, Eastern Africa, Australia, and South America will see different phases of the eclipse, but will miss out on parts of the penumbral, partial, or total phases.

Brandon Ochieng, ' a university student told Sunday Standard that he had anticipated the earth to turn crimson red, skies to change hue, or the sun to collide with the moon in a scientic yet surreal way.

Partly cloudy skies on Friday night should still give us a chance to at least view the full Moon and Mars in close proximity, so it will still be worth a look.

On July 27 at around 10pm, the red planet Mars will be directly opposite to the Sun and at the same time being at closest distance from the Earth at about 56 million kilometres. On average, the totality lasts approximately one hour to one hour and 30 minutes during moon eclipse.

Two very similar passages appear later in the New Testament, in the books of Acts and Revelations.
