Sorry, no lunar eclipse for you, Sudbury

Dr Brown said: "While more common than the solar eclipse , the event is nonetheless fairly unusual, with even partial eclipses rarely happening a couple of times or twice per year and each is only visible from a portion of the Earth". The July 27/28, 2018 total lunar eclipse is part of the Saros series 129, same as the July 16, 2000, total lunar eclipse - the longest eclipse of the 20th century.

Skygazers are set for a rare treat today as the longest "blood moon" eclipse of this century will occur in a shortwhile tonight.

Large Underground Lake Detected Below Mars Ice Cap, Study Says

Using the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding ( MARSIS ), a team of Italian researchers discovered liquid water on Mars . Between 2012 and 2015, MARSIS' ground-penetrating radar conducted a survey of a 120-mile-wide (200-kilometer-wide) zone in the Planum Australe region, just beyond Mars' permanent south polar ice cap.

Red planet and 'blood moon' pair up to dazzle skygazers

But a total eclipse occurs only when the Umbra completely covers the moon's surface. The good news is that millions of people around the world - from nearly all of Africa to the vast majority of Asia - will be able to see the moon gradually turn a deep blood red during the total lunar eclipse .
