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.

It also claims that Marchionne is now being kept alive only by machines, and that doctors said there was no hope of recovery. Marchionne brought it back to profitability in just one year, recording income of almost 1.5 billion euros in 2005.

The Royal Astronomical Society said: 'Sometimes the eclipsed moon is a deep red colour, nearly disappearing from view, and sometimes it can be quite bright. Those of you in the United Kingdom should look for this eclipse starting in at around 11PM (that's 23:00 hours) local time. Only North America misses the show this time.

The Earth's shadow will cover the moon for 1 hour and 43 minutes, according to NASA. The last time a total lunar eclipse lasted almost as long was on July 16, 2000, with a total duration of one hour and 46 minutes. - Will we be able to observe the lunar Eclipse? 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.
