The lunar eclipse will end at 11.14pm, with a total duration of one hour and 42 minutes.
People in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and Asia will have the best view, while the final stages of the eclipse after sunset will be visible in parts of South America.
While we typically experience between one and four lunar eclipses every year, this week's will be remarkably rare. During the eclipse, the moon will pass through Earth's darkest shadow and take on a red sheen, with the phenomenon being described as the "blood moon". According to Earthsky.org, since Mars is opposite the sun in the sky, it will look like a full, red moon.
After this, the moon will get deeper and deeper into the earths shadow.

Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse, referred to as Chandra Grahan and Surya Grahan respectively, hold special significance in the Hindu calendar.
Robin Scagell, vice-president of the Society for Popular Astronomy, said: "A total lunar eclipse, Mars, Jupiter and the International Space Station". Residents in most of the world will be able to see at least a partial eclipse. However, Indians won't be fortunate in light of the continuous rainstorm season in the nation which may make the moon be eclipse from seeing.
This time around, the eclipse will occur when the moon is furthest from the earth, making it a micro-moon and thus a blood micro moon eclipse.
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.
