Admirers of the Bible claim that the July 27, 2018 earthlings will be able to see the blood Eclipse, which can bring fatal change and the beginning of Armageddon, that is the end of the world.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth moves between the sun and the moon, completely blocking direct sunlight from reaching the moon, which gives the moon an orange/red hue that earns it the moniker of a "blood moon".

He pointed out that the moon's appearance greatly depended on atmospheric conditions around the Earth at the time of the eclipse.

A partial lunar eclipse happens when only a part of the moon enters Earth's shadow. It is going to be the longest eclipse of the 21st century Although it is expected to last 103 minutes, those in the United Kingdom and Ireland will not be able to see the start of the lunar eclipse as the moon will still be below the horizon.

"At 23h13 the moon starts recovering from the eclipse, which will be over by 24h19", ASSA says.

The lunar event will last for 103 minutes - four minutes short of the longest possible duration an eclipse could last. "These celestial events would be tough to witness, given the cloud cover from the ongoing monsoons". The best viewing spots on Friday will be near the Middle East, Southeastern Africa, Asia, and India. The moon appears to turn deep red or reddish brown. The eclipse will be visible with the naked eye.
