Longest Lunar Eclipse of the century rises behind Rome's Colosseum

Therefore, the full Month will appear the smallest this year, and to pass the Earth's shadow, it would need more time.

"About 3,000 visitors, including students accompanied by their parents, visited the planetarium between 11.54 p.m and 4.58 a.m to view the longest lunar eclipse through telescope", Director of planetarium Pramod G. Galgali told IANS here.

The lunar eclipse was set to start at 7:15pm; it ended at 1:28AM on Saturday.

The next full lunar Eclipse will primarily occur in the Western hemisphere, unlike the last Eclipse. "For instance, many don't eat during the eclipse and there are several notions attached to it". It will last almost 4 hours, during this time, the Moon will pass through Earth's shadow and will acquire a crimson hue, because of this, scientists have dubbed the coming Eclipse of the "blood".

By 9.30 pm on Friday, the roads had emptied out as many Bengalureans, anxious about the inauspicious eclipse, had stayed indoors.

The National Institute for Astronomical Research announced Wednesday that millions in Egypt and the Arab world will witness a long lunar eclipse next Friday.
