Lunar Eclipse on July 28, 2018

In the Philippines, eclipse maximum will occur at 4:21 am on July 28, 2018

The moon will turn red on July 28, 2018, visible from 3:30 am to 5:13 am in the Philippines. The best time to view the moon will be at 4:21 am when the moon is at its deepest red hue. No special equipment is required to view the eclipse, although binoculars used for birding and other outdoor activities will greatly improve the viewing experience.

The eclipse will be visible in most parts of Africa (9:30 pm to 11:13 pm on July 27) and Asia (midnight of July 27 to early morning of July 28). Only the end part of the eclipse will be visible in Southern America from 5 pm to 8 pm on July 27 (one side of the moon will turn dark, but will not turn red).

solar_shades

Specialized shades for viewing the Sun during solar eclipses. Without proper filters, looking directly at the Sun will result to permanent eye damage.

I have just finished making a couple of solar shades for the upcoming solar eclipse on March 9, 2016. To learn more about the specialized safety filter I used in this solar shade and what other low-cost alternative can be used, click here.

Lunar eclipse as observed from Camarines Norte, Philippines on April 4, 2015. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow, during instances when the Sun, the Earth, and the moon are in alignment. The deep red hue of the moon is caused by sunlight refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere where most of the blue light has already been scattered, leaving only the red light to fall on to the moon’s surface.
