Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 869,506 views on Friday, 27 July 2018 our article of the day is July 2018 lunar eclipse.

A total lunar eclipse took place on 27 July 2018. The Moon passed through the centre of the Earth's shadow in what was the first central lunar eclipse since 15 June 2011.

Since it occurred near apogee, this eclipse was the longest total lunar eclipse in the 21st century. Totality lasted approximately 103 minutes. This eclipse's totality lasted for a period "just short of the theoretical limit of a lunar eclipse (one hour and 47 minutes)." The moon remained at least partially in Earth's shadow for a total of four hours.This eclipse was the second total lunar eclipse in 2018, after the one in January. The eclipse occurred simultaneously with the perihelic opposition of Mars, a coincidence that happens once every 25,000 years.
