Where you can see Friday's 'blood moon'?

Lunar eclipse

Viewers in the Middle East, eastern Africa, southern Asia and India will be in prime position to witness the entire eclipse.

The total eclipse is expected to last a record-breaking one hour and 43 minutes, seen in Italy from 21:30, when the moon enters the shadow of the Earth and turns red, until 23:13, when it will start to emerge and regain its normal appearance.

Millions of Americans watched the first solar eclipse visible from the USA since 1979 last August.

Watch the lunar eclipse livestream in the video above starting at 3 p.m. E.T.

In the United Kingdom the partial eclipse will begin at 8.30pm, the total eclipse will occur between 9.20pm with the moon visible to the south-east, until 10.13pm.

"In the middle of a lunar eclipse it can look as if a red planet has taken up residence near the Earth - they are both eerie and attractive and I'll certainly be looking out for it!"

According to NASA, the USA will have to wait until July 2020 to witness its next lunar eclipse. Because of how Earth's atmosphere filters blue light, the moon appears red during a lunar eclipse.

It noted that there would be total lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 and January 21, 2019; partial lunar eclipse on July 16/17, 2019; transit mercury eclipse on November 21, 2019; and penumbral lunar eclipse January 10, 2020.

Rangers Trading Cole Hamels To Cubs
He played for the Phillies from 2006 to 2015 and won a World Series, a World Series MVP and an NLCS MVP with them in 2008. The pitchers were Rangers teammates before Darvish was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers and later signed by the Cubs .

Lunar eclipses occur as the moon passes through Earth's shadow.

Dr Kenda Knowles, of the Astrophysics and Cosmology Research Unit at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, said all eclipses were special, but tomorrow's one would be one of the longest, which would make for great viewing. The partial eclipse starts in India at 11:44pm IST, while the total eclipse begins at 1am IST.

On Saturday morning, Kiwis will be able to see an eclipsed Moon and the Sun in the sky at the same time. For four hours, it will be partly in the Earth's shadow.

How often does a blood moon occur?

The first lunar eclipse of the year arrived in January, presenting a large and bright red moon, but only to spectators in a handful of countries. The Bible contains references to the moon turning into blood and some ultra-Orthodox Jews consider lunar eclipses ominous and a cause for moral contemplation.

On December 26 next year, people in Brunei will be experien-cing a partial solar eclipse when the moon passes in front of the Sun.

"You will see the sunrise and sunset of the Earth lighting up the surface of the Moon - over 350,000 kilometers away".
