The Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of The Century Is Happening This July 28th
Stargazers, the second lunar eclipse of 2018 is ready to shine for us! Get your telescopes polished and ready to witness the phenomenon this Saturday on 28th July, confirmed by the National Space Agency (ANGKASA).
As the Moon, Mars and Milky-way align in a rare celestial parade, it will be visible in Kuala Lumpur from as early as 01:14AM until 06:19AM. The Total Lunar Eclipse will happen at 4:20AM and last for an hour 42 minutes, making it the longest one in the 21st century! *cue Bonnie Tyler*.
Besides Malaysia, only several other nations in around the world will be able to catch this historic moment. So if you plan to stay up until dawn, this is the best time to do so! If you’re planning to doze off, you’ll be able to catch ANGKASA’s live stream the next day on Facebook and Youtube. All hail social media.
While we wait and get ourselves hyped up over the ‘Blood Moon’ as they call it, here are a few tweets to keep your entertained:
