Complete lunar eclipse begins, the longest of this century

The lunar eclipse is coined "blood moon" for the color change of the moon, as seen from Earth, while it is immersed in Earth's shadow.

When the moon moved into the conical shadow of the earth, it went from being illuminated by the sun to being dark.

The event is co-organised by the Survey Department of the Ministry of Development, Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali and the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam. Interestingly, the August 6/7, 2036 eclipse will not have almost as long a totality as the June 25/26, 2029 total lunar eclipse, where totality will last for 102 minutes. During the eclipse, the Earth will be moving directly between the Sun and the Moon.

The moon turned "blood red" in a total lunar eclipse for an hour and 43 minutes - the longest of the century.

"We have a rare and interesting conjunction of phenomena", Pascal Descamps, an astronomer with the Paris Observatory, told AFP.

"Since the moon is bright anyway, you'll be able to see it regardless of light pollution, but to see the planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars nearly in line with the moon, you'll want a nice dark spot where light from the city or streets does not pollute the sky too much", Knowles said.

The moon disappeared behind clouds at the crucial moment.

Before we had explanations before what causes the moon to appear red, ancient cultures often feared the worst.

Experts estimate that Mars' brightness will persist for several weeks. For viewers in India, the eclipse, both partial and the total, will be visible in its entirety from all parts of the country.

Attendees will then head to the telescopes to witness the eclipse and various planets.
