Early Saturday morning, the night sky will feature a rare blood moon lunar eclipse and it will be the longest such event in roughly a century. 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.
Often referred to as a blood moon, a total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth moves directly between the sun and the moon.
Though the United States won't see a lunar eclipse, the moon will still be full and appear reddish/orange Friday evening.
During a lunar eclipse, the moon appears to be red because it lines up perfectly with the Earth and sun such that the Earth's shadow totally blocks the sun's light. The next total lunar eclipse will occur on January 21, 2019.
Even if you're in North America, you can still watch the July 27 eclipse online through the Virtual Telescope Project's website, which will start livestreaming the eclipse at 2:30 p.m. The moon, closest to the centre of the shadow, will showcase the maximum eclipse at 1:51 am.
However, going by the way we get excited on seeing the Moon or any other planet in our Solar System, we'll probably lose our minds if we're ever contacted by aliens.
Eastern time, making it too light outside to see the red moon.

It's less powerful in some ways, although if there were a pool of pure water, it is possible that its instruments could find it. Orosei and colleagues used a radar instrument called MARSIS aboard the Mars Express spacecraft to make their discovery.

Los Angeles and other teams with cap space could offer four years at $141 million; Toronto can reach five years, $190 million. Green noted that he strained his groin against Boston in December, but still played 70 games over the course of the season.
The best views will be in Africa and Asia, but folks in Europe, South America and Australia will still get partial views. The ASSA says that this will be the "longest eclipse of the century". In fact, it will be easier to look at than a normal full moon because it won't be as bright due to the lack of sunlight.
"From that point onwards, the shadow of the Earth will slowly retreat across the lunar surface until the partial eclipse comes to completion". On July 27, the earth, moon and sun will come to align in a flawless line, which will cause the phenomenon.
In a lovely coincidence, on July 27, Mars will also appear large and bright in the sky as it moves towards its closest approach to Earth in 15 years.
"A blood moon is what we call a solar lunar eclipse". Although the viability of that claim is starting to wane, given that we've seen lunar eclipses previously on 14 April and 8 October 2014 as well as 4 April and 28 September 2015, and we're still knocking about. And it can also be a back-up option for people in the eclipse viewing zone in case of cloudy skies.
