The Lunar Eclipse will take place on July 27th and last for 1 hour and 43 minutes! The Lunar Eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow, giving the moon a reddish tint. AKA a Blood Moon! The BEST part about this Lunar Eclipse is the fact that (unlike most of the night sky phenomenons) this will occur between 3:30PM-5:13PM. You can walk out of work and look at the moon... just tell your boss it's "life research" or something. Seriously, you can see the world's natural wonder all without setting a middle of the night alarm. Now that is a WIN!
