When is the Blood Moon and how can I see it?

The eclipse's totality, when the moon passes through Earth's shadow, will last for 1 hour, 43 minutes, the longest for a lunar eclipse this century.

The totality of this lunar eclipse will last about anhour and 43 minutes, but a partial eclipse before and after the total phase means the moon will spend almost four hours crossing the Earth's shadow.

A significant celestial event will be visible in Kilkenny tomorrow night as the moon is totally eclipsed by the Earth for 103 minutes, turning it a deep shade of red. The total duration of the three stages of the eclipse will be longest in Santa Maria di Leuca, in the province of Lecce, Puglia (where it will last 5 hours 32 minutes and 32 seconds) and shortest in Courmayeur, Valle d'Aosta (4 hours 28 minutes and 50 seconds).

"Everyone is welcome and beginners are even more welcome", said Mr Al Qaissieh, who said these events prove you don't need lots of expensive equipment to participate. While other colours in the spectrum are blocked and scattered by the atmosphere, red light tends to make it through easier. Depending upon the part of the Eartha's shadow the Moon will be passing through, its appearance can be sometimes dark brown to very dark gray too. This visibility of lunar eclipse in India is expected to be pretty good but cloudy sky and inclement weather may hurt your chances of being able to watch the phenomenon.

"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 handsome and I'll certainly be looking out for it!"

"Mars will look like this handsome bright red star just below the Moon", said Prof O'Brien.

Samsung’s new display is officially ‘unbreakable.’ I can’t wait to break it.
Gorilla Glass 6's claim to fame is that it can survive 15 drops onto hard surfaces from 1 meter or higher without breaking. While an unbreakable display panel sounds good, the use of a plastic window will lead to a decline in display quality.

The site also has interactive maps that show which regions will see a partial or total eclipse.

Here in North America, however, we will get a great look at Mars at its opposition, meaning when the Earth is directly between Mars and the sun. This slower moving full Moon will take longer time and greater distance of Earth's umbral shadow cone to travel, making it the longest duration of total eclipse of this century.

There are solar and lunar eclipses, which occur in multiple ways.

But the eclipse won't be visible to those in North America. The moon will begin to appear reddish around 18:24 GMT as it moves into the main part of the Earth's shadow.

Astronomers, stargazers, and anyone taking an evening walk marvelled at the moon as it turned shades of orange and yellow on Thursday night a day before the rare blood moon.

At the same time, Mars will hover near the moon in the night sky, easily visible with the naked eye. The fact that the moon appears so small and takes longer to pass through Earth's shadow is also why the eclipse lasts longer.
