28 July 2018.
Mark your calendars because there’s going to be another LUNAR ECLIPSE happening!
And not just any typical lunar eclipse. Set to last 1 hour and 43 minutes, this will be the longest lunar eclipse of the century and will be visible from Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe.
Which also means, we’ll be able to see it from Singapore!
Once In A Blood Moon
If you’re planning to witness this lunar event, be prepared to stay up late.
The eclipse will begin at 1.14am on 28 July 2018, with the total eclipse set to happen from 3.30am to 5.13am.
The last lunar eclipse we had was back in 31 January 2018, which saw a lunar eclipse, blue moon, and Supermoon happen all at the same time.
The next lunar eclipse we’ll be seeing after the one in July, will be on 21 January 2019.
So clear your schedules and get your phones, cameras and telescopes out for this once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event.
