Century's longest lunar eclipse to be visible in Taiwan

Blood Moon 2018 End of the world

The partial eclipse, meanwhile, which comes either side of the main event, will last nearly four hours. 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 blood moon of 2018 will be visible on July 27, when the first lunar eclipse of the century blackens the sky.

The moon, once again, will threaten to end humanity next month by turning the color of blood and then going dramatically, and completely, dark.

In 2014, Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz had "claimed to have found references of Blood Moon Tetrad in the Bible", Express.co.uk reported. If this sounds familiar, it's because we recently were able to witness an even more rare lunar episode with this past January's Super Blue Blood Moon.

According to Nasa, the Moon will be in full eclipse - or totality - for 103 minutes. Just as so many other things in this life, it's possible that this headline will be accurate: "Blood moon "to bring end of the world" as stargazers enjoy longest lunar eclipse this century".

Later this week the moon will appear close to the planet Mars.

Conspiracy theorists and evangelical Christians fear the lunar eclipse which will take place on July 27 is actually a great big sign which shows humanity that doomsday is on the way. But if you're not awake, don't worry: You can still check it out after the sun sets around 8:05 p.m. ET.

The entire event, from start to finish, will last around four hours. And yes, it will look larger than normal - but this always happens when the moon is near the horizon. There will also be some time before and after when the moon is in the lighter part of Earth's shadow, which is called the penumbra. "That [the middle] gets a longer-duration eclipse", he said.

Additionally, the moon will be at a farther point from Earth along its orbit, EarthSky pointed out. According to The Weather Channel, on July 31, Mars will move within 35.8 million miles of Earth.
