According to EarthSky, it's the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. In fact, it won't be visible anywhere in North America. We'll be treated to the cosmic display for nearly two hours; experts reckon the Blood Moon will last approximately one hour and 43 minutes in total. The partial eclipses that lead up to and follow the total eclipse will last an hour and 6 minutes each.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the earth and into its shadow.

"A blood moon is what we call a solar lunar eclipse".

NASA said the total lunar eclipse will last almost two hours Friday night, turning the moon a reddish orange color.

A total eclipse will start at 1:00 am (July 28).

The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere.

The eclipse will begin at 20:24 and will last three hours, 55 minutes. Once totally immersed, it turns to a deep red colour.

Eclipse Medication: Find a place outdoors or by a window where you can sit with a clear view of the Moon. It will be a super moon as well, which is a full moon or new moon that coincides with the moon's position at it's closest to the Earth. But it's time to take out those cameras again because, guess what, the Moon's coming back in red. It'll be a lovely four hours there, hanging in our sky, passing above us with high visibility (hopefully) across the whole world - except for North America. The lunar eclipse will also be visible in India, and this will be a "Blood Moon" as well, where the Earth's satellite takes on a reddish tinge.

An eclipse occurs when the Earth comes between the moon and the sun, causing the Earth's shadow to cover the moon. This eclipse will also be the longest eclipse we have had this century! Mars will be nearing its closest approach to Earth since 2003, making it look very bright in the sky. During an annular eclipse, NASA uses ground and space instruments to view the corona when the moon blocks the sun's glare. Those of you in the United Kingdom should look for this eclipse starting in at around 11PM (that's 23:00 hours) local time.

Central and Eastern Africa: The entire eclipse will be visible in Central and Eastern Africa, with totality beginning in major cities like Cairo and Nairobi at 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. local time, respectively.
