Tomorrow night is eclipse night!

On the night of the July 27-28, certain parts of the world will witness the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. The total phase of the eclipse will last 1 hour 42 minutes and 57 seconds. Before and after this period, there will be a partial eclipse, each lasting 1 hour and 6 minutes.

As an added bonus, the Mars opposition – when Earth passes between Mars and the sun – will happen during the same night. This means that, from Earth, Mars will appear the brightest it has been since 2003.
