Unfortunately, the celestial show won't be visible in North America.

Blood Moon is set to be the longest lunar eclipse of the century, and it's happening this Friday.

Here's when totality will begin in the regions where the entire eclipse will be visible. The total duration of the eclipse will be six hours and 14 minutes.

Why does the moon turn red in a Blood Moon eclipse?

He said: "Lunar eclipses are very easy to witness as no special equipment or safety precautions are required".

The greatest eclipse will be admired at 9.22 p.m. CET. Tune in from 3:30-5:13p.m.to see the full eclipse.

At 4:58 am, the penumbral eclipse will end. In a tenuous interpretation of the Bible, a select group of onlookers are propounding the belief that Friday's lunar eclipse will bring with it an apocalypse. Instead of that sunlight hitting the moon's surface, Earth's shadow falls on it.

The super moons of the past few months have been hitting us hard, messing with our feelings, and leaving us feeling like absolute emotional wrecks. This is an eclipse of the moon - a lunar eclipse.

The eclipse will occur on the night of July 27 into the early hours of July 28.

A lunar eclipse can be seen from Earth at night.

A lunar eclipse is pictured over the ocean in Oceanside, Calif., Jan. 31, 2018. It's also a "mini-moon" because the moon is the farthest from Earth and appears small. Extra pollutants in the atmosphere may enhance the vibrancy of the moon's apparently color as well. The good news is that the next total lunar eclipse, scheduled to occur on January 21, 2019, will be visible to all North American residents.

However the brightness of the red colour depends on how dirty the atmosphere is due to volcanic eruptions - and experts don't believe this particular blood moon will display a strong red. This is the lunar eclipse, where the last eclipse we had was a solar eclipse.

It is safe to look at the spectacle without any additional protection. South-eastern observers will be able to see the eclipse for somewhat longer than north-western ones.
