  • Blood Moon 2018 prophecy

The blood moon eclipse should last a whopping one hour and 43 minutes.

A blood moon will grace the United Kingdom skies next month.

The partial eclipse, meanwhile, which comes either side of the main event, will last nearly four hours.

You just need an open space with a clear view.

A consolation prize for us here in the United States will be a bright Mars alongside the almost full moon just a few days after the eclipse on July 31.

It will also be visible with the naked eye all night long, rising in the East around sunset and slowly making its way across the sky before setting in the West around sunrise, according to AccuWeather. Rather than the moon disappearing from view, as happens in a solar eclipse, skywatchers can expect to see it turn a rather sinister shade of crimson, which is why many call it a "blood moon". The event will begin with a partial eclipse till about 7.30 p.m. UTC, before the skies are graced with the especially long total eclipse.

The rare occurrence will be seen across large parts of Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and Southern America. The atmosphere filters out green and violet light and shows the Moon in a deep red, hence "Blood Moon".

"Opposition is a big milestone each year for observing the ringed planet Saturn, or any superior planet (planet orbiting the sun outside Earth's orbit)", EarthSky.org reports. The peak of the eclipse will occur at 8:22 p.m. UTC.

The Book of Revelations also contains a similar passage which reads: 'And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great natural disaster; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood'.

United Kingdom skygazers can look up to the sky on the night of July 27, and the early hours of July 28 to catch the phenomenon.

The next total lunar eclipse that will be visible to us in the United States will be early next year, January 20-21.

The moon will appear full and bright for about three days this week. "That [the middle] gets a longer-duration eclipse", he said.

According to Earth Sky, for an eclipse to last as long as this one, the moon has to pass through the center of the Earth's shadow where it is the widest.
