Here’s What You Need to Know About Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse

-

On 27 July 2018, we will witness the longest lunar eclipse of the century; and the good news is that you can observe it from Cairo!

The phenomenon, which is known as the “blood moon,” is estimated to start at 7:14 PM and end at 1:28 AM (reaching its peak at 10:21 PM).

The science behind it is quite simple: the sun and the moon will perfectly line up and the moon will move into the Earth’s shadow. Once that happens, it will turn completely red due to the way sunlight passes into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Unlike a solar eclipse, it’s safe to see with your naked eye, so call your friends and make sure you watch it together!
