Everyone is talking about it! The longest blood moon lunar eclipse of the century! But you're not invited.
On Friday, July 27, a full moon will pass through the Earth's shadow, resulting in a eclipse that will last for a whopping 103 minutes. That's 26 minutes longer than January's eclipse. With an eclipse that long, most of the people on Earth are going to see at least some part of this spectacular celestial event. Unfortunately, no one in the United States is going to see any part of it.
If you're in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America, all you have to do is look outside at the right moment. However, by the time the full moon rises in the US, the eclipse will have ended. Fortunately, the year is 2018, and you don't even have to put on pants to take part. The Weather Channel will be streaming the full eclipse on its mobile app starting at 4pm ET on July 27. The stream, which is only available to US viewers, will broadcast live from locations across the globe including Greece, Luxembourg, Italy, and Australia.
A spokesperson says a module will go live on the app's home screen on Friday, making it exceedingly easy to find.
