On 27 and 28 July 2018 the moon will be in the earth’s shadow.
The moon will spend one hour and 43 minutes in the earth’s shadow. The last time this was exceeded was in 318 when the moon spent one hour and 47 minutes in the earth’s shadow.
The spectacle will only be visible from around a quarter of the globe, including Europe, Africa, the middle east and western Asia, including India and most of Australia.
The interplanetary show will last around 6 hours.
By coincidence this eclipse happens when Mars is closest to the earth, an event that occurs every 780 days. Because of this Mars will be the most illuminated planet in the earth’s solar system.
The website timeanddate.com shows eclipse start times and where it will be most visible.
In Geneva the show begins at 21:04 on 27 July and ends at 01:28 on 28 July 2018. The start time in Zurich is 6 minutes ahead of Geneva.
