Keep in mind to look up in the sky later this week because a historic lunar eclipse will be visible in South Africa.

NASA said the totality of the lunar eclipse will last an hour and 43 minutes.

"The total lunar eclipse will last three hours in total and be visible from Dundee at moonrise".

On Friday, skywatchers around the world will be rewarded with the longest total lunar eclipse of the century - except those in North America.

But 69 was the low score among the first 22 players out in Sunday's final round as the breeze was blowing 15-20 miles per hour . Hopefully, there were a lot of young kids watching on TV today, like I was watching Costantino in '95 coming so close .


According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the lunar eclipse will begin in the wee hours of July 28 morning.

The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere. This makes the moon appear red to people on Earth. It's only when our planet Earth is in the way of the sun and we're looking at the moon, which is blocked from the sun by our Earth, that we see the BLOOD MOON. However, the partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours.

Come Friday and the world is set to behold a spectacle of the rarest of rare variety-the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century. It will be a super moon as well, which is a full moon or new moon that coincides with the moon's position at it's closest to the Earth. This one will be visible for almost four hours, as the moon passes through the centre of Earth's shadow.

During the lunar eclipse, the moon will appear red.

But, Giuliani went on to say that Trump told Cohen if he were to make a payment to use a check instead of cash. He tells Trump, "I need to open up a company for the transfer of all that info regarding our friend David".


If the sky stays clear on the evening / night of the 27th, the eclipse should be visible in the Netherlands and will start at around 9.30pm, around the time when the moon comes up. The moon will turn a spectacular reddy-brown colour, which you won't need any special equipment to view (unlike with solar eclipses).

As the Moon continues on its orbit, and pulls away from the Umbra, stargazers will notice another partial lunar eclipse. It'll start around 1:14 p.m. For the Egyptians, the eclipse serves as a sow swallowing the moon for a brief time. The approach of Mars on July 31 will bring the two planets closest and the planet Mars to be seen brightest since 2003.

Unfortunately, given that the total eclipse is scheduled to occur from 3:30 p.m.to 5:13 p.m. EDT, North Americans will be unable to observe the epic celestial event.
