Possibility of moon life seen by WSU researcher

Life could have existed on the Moon billions of years ago say scientists

However, Mars is reaching its nearest point to Earth.

A blood red moon lights up the sky during a total lunar eclipse seen from Auckland in 2015.

An eclipse never travels alone: The lunar event is sandwiched between two partial solar eclipses on July 13 and August 11.

While the duration of lunar eclipse will be about an hour and 43 minutes, partial eclipse before and after the eclipse will last around an hour and six minutes, each- making it a almost four-hour long spectacle for the stargazers. A total lunar eclipse occurs when Sun, Earth and Moon are perfectly lined up, so only a minimal amount of sun light would seep through the atmosphere and so the Moon will appear dark.

According to the Science News, Nigeria will experience total lunar eclipse, which would be is fully visible in Lagos.

They believe the moon must have been spewing out so much super-heated volatile gas, including water vapour, during these periods that it could have sustained life. Colours at the blue end of the spectrum - like violet, blue and green, get scattered by earth's atmosphere while the longer wavelength, red end of the spectrum gets directed on to the surface of the moon.

Mars is already brighter than usual and will shine even more- and appear bigger - as July 31 nears.

Moore said that from 9.30pm until 10.15pm on Friday, the blood red colour of the moon will be dim and if there's any haze in the sky, it could make viewing hard.

Japan posts record temperature of 41.1° celsius as deadly heatwave rolls on
A temperature indicator measures 41.0 degrees Celsius in Kumagaya, north of Tokyo, Japan , in this photo taken by Kyodo July 23. Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike acknowledged Monday that the recent heatwave was "exactly like living in a sauna".

The next lunar eclipse of such a length is due in 2123. During this event, it's not risky to look up at the moon. The eclipse will take place at 3:30 p.m. GMT and last until 5:13 p.m. GMT, with peak eclipse occurring around 4:21 p.m. GMT, or 11:21 a.m. EST, that is, midday for most of North and South America.

A rare celestial shadow play of total lunar eclipse which will be of the longest duration for the 21st century can be witnessed on Friday.

The partial eclipse will begin at 8.30pm, and the total eclipse will be between 9.20pm and 10.13pm.

At the same time, Mars will be traveling closer to earth than it has been since 2003, so some observers may be able to see what looks like an orange-red star - and is in fact the red planet.

One of the folklore states that women should avoid staring at the eclipsed moon for a long time as they may get pregnant.

You don't need any kind of special equipment in order to see the Blood Moon 2018 on July 27 as it will be visible from the naked eye.

The total lunar eclipse on Friday will be visible in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. As a result, the sunlight will be blocked from reaching the moon's surface and will cast a shadow over it.
