Guwahati: As the world is readying to witness the Total Lunar Eclipse tonight, Assam’s Guwahati Planetarium has made arrangements to show the planetary movements from 6.30 PM to 7.30 PM today.

The Lunar Eclipse has been much talked about as it will be the longest eclipse of the 21st century in terms of duration. The eclipse will continue for 1 hour and 45 minutes approximately and will begin with a partial eclipse at 11:54 PM on July 27 and a total eclipse at 1:00 AM on July 2018.

The eclipsed moon will exhibit a copper red color as it pairs up with the red planet Mars. The red planet will lie opposite to the sun with Earth in between the two.

If weather conditions remain favorable, a good sighting of this incredible phenomenon can be witnessed. Along with the rest of the country, Assam and northeast too will be able to witness the total Lunar Eclipse.
