  • Lunar Eclipse on July 27 2018 (Jul 27, 2018)
    . On 27 July 2018 a millennium largest lunar eclipse took place, when the Moon passes directly behind Earth into its shadow.This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are aligned very closely with our planet in between. Nobody can explain why angular sizes of moon and sun as it is seen from the Earth are so close in our epoch to each other. During a total lunar eclipse,...
