  • Longest Lunar Eclipse in the 21st Century Will Be Visible From Egypt?


    The world will be turning red because of an apoc-eclipse, no we are kidding. However, we are only kidding about it being an apocalypse. According to Space.com, the longest, total lunar eclipse of the 21st century is on its way to us.  So if you are one of those people who like the very mainstream idea of stargazing or watching comets flying through space, you are in luck. 

    NASA says, it will be on the 27th of July, and may last up to 1 hour and 43 minutes. And, it’s not a regular eclipse; in fact, it’s a blood moon, which means we’ll be witnessing a spectrum of red in the sky.

    Don’t worry folks, you need no sunglasses or any special equipment/cameras/binoculars to see the total eclipse, your “naked” eyes will do the trick.

    NASA says that it is going to be fully visible from pretty much all of Africa, the Middle East, Southern Asia and the Indian Ocean region. So, all you have to do now is stay focused on the sky as the moon turns to a blood-sucking Dracula, from 9:30 PM to 11:13 PM, and you’ll see it.
