All You Need to Know About the 'Blood Moon' Eclipse This July


Global Event: Total Lunar Eclipse

Local Type: Total Lunar Eclipse , Nigeria

Begins: Friday, Jul 27, 2018 at 6:57 pm

Maximum: Friday, Jul 27, 2018 at 9:21 pm 1.61 Magnitude

Ends: Sat, Jul 28, 2018 at 12:28 am

Duration: 5 hours, 31 minutes


Why is it called Blood Moon?

The moon turns deep red or reddish brown during eclipses because some of the sunlight going through Earth's atmosphere is bent around the edge of our planet and falls onto the moon's surface. Earth's air also scatters more shorter-wavelength light (in colors such as green or blue); what's left is the longer-wavelength, redder end of the spectrum.

What parts of the world will see it?

This particular eclipse will not be visible to people in North America, except via webcasts. The entire eclipse will be visible from Africa, the Middle East and countries in central Asia. The eclipse will be visible from eastern South America as it is ending, and from Australia as it is beginning.

This month, planet Mars will be at its closest to Earth since 2003 and it will shine at its best in the night sky.

No special device is needed to view this eclipse.

DEONTAY WILDER AND ANTHONY JOSHUA, COULD THIS BE IT?

"Wilder is going to be getting a contract from us ASAP," Hearn said. "It's obviously the fight we want. There is a lot of sorting out to do for this fight, but great news that in principle he seems to be on board for the idea of coming to the UK for the fight. We're going to be dealing with it and we're going to be making sure he gets the relevant paperwork."

Wilder tweeted : "The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the U.S. is still available. Today I even agreed to their offer to fight Joshua next in the UK. If he prefers the fight in the UK, the ball is in their court. It's up to them to choose."


Not long after, we got a picture from Joshua on twitter with the caption "getting ready to rumble". Everybody assumes he is talking about the proposed fight that will turn reality soon.

Wilder's co-manager Shelly Finkel fed us some juicy bits, "We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the U.…
