And, of course, there are areas across the world where the eclipse will not be visible at all, such as North America.

All eyes will on the sky tonight as the world is to witness the attractive sight of 'blood moon' as the moon moves into the shadow of the earth for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

"This evening's rain will probably be a more hit or miss affair but Friday night likely to see higher totals", Niall Tweeted.

The total eclipse lasted one hour and 43 minutes, with the entire event lasting closer to four hours.

"However, we won't see all of this eclipse, as the Moon will already be deep in the shadow as it rises above the horizon from Ireland", said a spokesperson for the Irish Astronomical Association. But longest lunar eclipse is technically not great, because you can't see the eclipse moving.

"Part of South America will be able to watch the final stages of the eclipse just after sunset on July 27".

The "blood moon" effect is due to the visual effect generated when sunlight filters into the atmosphere and the colours orange and red are projected onto the Moon. During the course of the eclipse, Mars will sit at one of its closest points to Earth in its orbit.

At the same time, Mars hovered near the moon in the night sky, easily visible to the naked eye.

Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear.

At what time will you see the blood moon in India? The total lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes through the middle of the Earth's shadow, making it darker than it is during the partial eclipse, when the moon is in the Earth's shadow but not in the shadow's middle (which is darker than it is on either side).

How To Watch The Longest Lunar Eclipse Of The Century
When the moon moves into the conical shadow of the earth, it goes from being illuminated by the sun to being dark. The "totality" period, when light from the Moon is totally obscured, will last for one hour, 43 minutes.

"Nigeria is set to experience a very spectacular total lunar eclipse on Friday, July 27, weather permitting".

People say one should avoid travelling during the eclipse.

The next total eclipse of the sun visible in the USA will be on April 8, 2024.

When the three celestial bodies are perfectly lined up, however, the Earth's atmosphere scatters blue light from the sun while refracting or bending red light onto the moon, usually giving it a rosy blush.
