2 total eclipses of the Moon in 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Twice in 2018 the moon will “blush” in the sky as there will be two total eclipses of the Moon, one at the end of January and one at the end of July.

Total eclipses will be visible from everywhere on the Earth that will have night, and the duration of each visible eclipse will vary from place to place. During eclipses, the moon will get a dark reddish color like rust, as our planet’s satellite will enter the Earth’s shadow, which will interfere between the Sun and the Moon.

The first eclipse will occur on January 31 and will be particularly visible from eastern Europe and eastern Africa to South America.

The second eclipse will happen on the night of July 27 or the dawn of the 28th, depending on the country. It will be mainly visible from South America, Africa, Central Asia and India.
