The Longest Lunar Eclipse in a Century on July 27th #SaturdayMorningCartoons

via The Dr. Bionics Show

Hey kids, have you ever heard about an eclipse? Wanna know about Lunar Eclipse in detail? Join Dr. Binocs as he tells you more about the Lunar Eclipse.

More info on the lunar eclipse from Quartz Media:

On July 27, a blood moon will glow an eerie red ahead of the longest lunar eclipse that Earth will experience in the 21st century. For one hour and 43 minutes, the moon will disappear from the sky, entirely obscured by the shadow that our planet casts upon it.

Unfortunately, not all Earthlings will get to enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime extended celestial event. It will only be visible from parts of Africa, Europe, and North and South America if skies are clear.

But there’s good news: All of us can enjoy the moon every night, and it’s always awesome, whether it’s a sliver or full and bright. The thrill of an unusual natural event like a lunar eclipse only highlights the fact that we ignore the everyday wonders that surround us all the time. We spend our days and nights staring at screens, and don’t gaze up at the sky nearly enough. That means we’re missing out on great riches that are available to everyone, but appreciated by only a few.
