‘Blood Moon’ to be visible from South Birmingham tonight
Written by Tristan Harris on July 27, 2018
RESIDENTS will be able to see a Blood Moon tonight when the longest lunar eclipse of the century takes place.
It is expected to last one hour and 43 minutes and should be visible in South Birmingham from 9pm.
The Blood Moon effect is caused by the moon’s orbit taking in the shadow of the Earth. It lasts so long as the moon is the furthest point away from the earth.
The good news is you won’t need a telescope or fancy equipment to see it – all you need to do is step outside your door.
