Meanwhile, the January 31 sighting of a Super Blue Blood Moon and a total lunar eclipse occurred in India for the first time after 1982.

Apocalypse "prophets" have claimed next month's Blood Moon is a sign that the world is about to end.

According to Christian group Endtime Ministries, the moon turning blood red predicts the end of the world.

Mathematically, the longest total lunar eclipse possible would last one hour and 47 minutes.

However, on May 31 the White House announced that those exemptions would be ending at the end of the day. Trump has also ordered tariffs be imposed against Canada, Mexico and other USA allies, as well as China.

The term "Blood moon" is used to refer to the red tinge on a fully eclipsed Moon.

According to Nasa, the Moon will be in full eclipse - or totality - for 103 minutes.

"As an ardent skywatcher who derives much pleasure from lovely events like lunar eclipses, it saddens me that there are "prophets of doom" in the world who view these life-enriching events as portents of disaster", Geoffrey Gaherty, a writer for Starry Night Education, told the publication. And yes, it will look larger than normal - but this always happens when the moon is near the horizon.

This total lunar eclipse - which occurs when the moon passes behind the Earth - will be the longest in more than a century, reportedly lasting a total of one hour and 43 minutes. There will also be some time before and after when the moon is in the lighter part of Earth's shadow, which is called the penumbra. "When we fly between a superior planet and the sun, the planet is generally closest and brightest for that year". It will rise in the east Wednesday at 7:28 p.m. and Thursday at 8:16 p.m. The eclipse will be visible from eastern South America as it is ending, and from Australia as it is beginning.

Russia Calls Trump's Space Force Plan 'Alarming'
Many suspect Trump's Space Force talk is just meant to distract Americans from the humanitarian crisis happening at our borders. Space is for telecommunication, navigation, Earth observation satellites and so many other purposes that we take for granted.

The entire event, from start to finish, will last around four hours. "That [the middle] gets a longer-duration eclipse", he said.

The low arc of the June full moon across the sky means moonlight must travel through more of the Earth's atmosphere, which gives it an orange or yellow tint.

What Is A Blood Moon?

Lunar apogee is the moon's farthest orbital point from Earth making it appear particularly small and distant.

Local, state officials applaud U.S
The court gave South Dakota a victory, knocking aside the physical-presence rule as arbitrary and obsolete in the digital age. But smaller online stores may not have been collecting sales tax, which the Supreme Court ruling could change.
