However, the partial eclipse will be visible for nearly four hours. The professor, however, said that the next total lunar eclipse that would be visible in Nigeria would occur on January 21, 2019. "The red colour depends on the atmosphere at the time, but my suspicions are it will be redder than normal in Sydney because you'll be looking through a thick layer of atmosphere", Prof Coward told AAP.

    Latest figures show that each year the United Kingdom throws away 27 million tons of waste, around 45% of which is reported to be recycled. Since 2002, the amount of waste sent overseas to countries including China , Turkey, Malaysia and Poland has increased sixfold - accounting for half of the packaging reported as recycled previous year.

    Large Underground Lake Detected Below Mars Ice Cap, Study Says

    The spaceship bounced radar pulses off the planet's surface: the way the pulses bounced back revealed that there was something which was neither rock nor ice underneath the cap. "But that existed 3.8 billion years ago". MARSIS operations manager Andrea Cicchetti said hints of subsurface anomalies had been detected before, but past attempts to confirm the results were foiled because the radar sampling rates were too low.

    Government regulators also estimate the regulation, which they name the Safer and Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles rule, will cut traffic deaths and reduce the cost of new vehicles, Reuters reported. For California, blocking future fuel-mileage increases and stripping the state of its ability to set its own standards would imperil the state's ambitious climate goals.
  • Mars Express Just Discovered a Subsurface Liquid Water Lake on Mars

    Research

    There is liquid water on Mars. Since 1964, the United States has launched more than 20 robotic spacecraft to the red planet at a cost of more than $20 billion in an evolving campaign to map out the red planet's surface, determine the role of water in its history and to search for signs of past habitability and the organic building blocks of life, Harwood reported.

    The period of complete eclipse - known as "totality", when the moon appears darkest - will last from 1930 to 2113 GMT. The Weather Channel has announced that it will host a livestream of the event on its app , available for iOS and Android, beginning at 4 p.m.

    Also known as a total lunar eclipse, it happens only when the earth passes exactly between the sun and the moon. Lunar eclipses also only take place when the moon is full. When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it will darken, but it won't disappear. According to the reports in ANI, the moon will be in ideal alignment with the sun and the earth, with the moon in the middle of the earth and the sun.

    Miles of Water Found on Mars. Could It Support Life?

    Research

    Alan Duffy, an astronomer from Swinburne University and the lead scientist of Australia's Science Channel, says the liquid water is not a lake that you would want to swim in. They found that the south polar region of Mars is made of many layers of ice and dust down to a depth of about 1.5 km. The rightmost white line is the surface radar echo, while the light blue spots along the basal radar echo highlight areas of very high reflectivity, interpreted as being caused by the presence of ...

    The lake under the Martian ice stretches 20 km across, said the team led by Roberto Orosei from the National Institute of Astrophysics in Bologna in a paper detailed in the prestigious journal Science . NASA is planning to launch a new rover as early as July 2020 with a mission to comprehensively determine whether life ever arose on Mars, while characterising the climate and geology of the red planet and preparing for human exploration.

  • Scientists find lake of "liquid water" on Mars

    Research

    Still, water is water-and it could be a sign of potential life on the Red Planet, or at least a sign of potential support for a colony. No, not yet. Such migrations raise the possibility of the same thing happening on Mars - as the water retreated, life moved deeper underground. Mars, like many frontier areas of science , has a history of exciting findings - such as the discovery of flowing water on the surface in 2015 - that turn out to be explained mostly by something far more mundane, ...
  • Huge underground lake found on Mars

    The next step is for space authorities to definitively confirm the body of water is there - and then the search for life begins. The radar profile of this sub-surface Martian lake is similar to lakes found under the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets here on Earth, this suggests that there is indeed a subglacial lake on Mars .
  • Latest SpaceX Launch Sends Telstar 19V Communications Satellite Into Orbit

    The launch window will remain open until 5:50 a.m. EDT. To date, SpaceX has successfully landed more than two dozen Falcon 9 first stages and re-flown landed boosters on more than a dozen occasions. On-board thrusters will be used to circularize the orbit at an altitude of 22,300 miles above the equator where satellites take 24 hours to complete one orbit and thus appear stationary in the sky.

    Residents in Australia will be able to see the lunar eclipse as the moon sets, while those in eastern Brazil and western Europe can see it as the moon is rising. The lunar eclipse will last for one hour and 43 minutes with total viability in Eastern Africa and Central Asia on July 27. The total duration of the various stages of eclipse will be 6 hours, 14 minutes in the Kingdom.

South Africa's next total lunar eclipse is early morning of 16 May 2022. Instead of that sunlight hitting the moon's surface, Earth's shadow falls on it.
