The eclipse will be visible from most of Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Africa and South America.

It is to note that the eclipse won't be visible to viewers in North America, except via webcasts.

We may not be able to see this week's total lunar eclipse here in D.C., but you can take in the views from around the world via livestream. The totality period of the eclipse will last for one hour and 42 minutes, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). If you want to watch online the lunar eclipse live stream, just read on for the stream and everything you need to know about the phenomenon. He will be speaking about the relevance of a lunar eclipse.

Beside Lake Magadi, 100 kilometres (60 miles) southwest of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, young members of the Maasai community watched the eclipse through a high-powered telescope provided by a local couple.

"New Zealand will catch the beginning stages of the eclipse before sunrise on July 28".

The next lunar eclipse visible in Brunei will take place on July 17 next year, but it will be a partial one.

The moon will also be at the farthest point on its orbit from Earth, making its movement across the sky slower from our perspective, thus spending longer in the dark.

It will cast the Moon into shadow for one hour and 43 minutes, during which its colour will appear to be anything from orange to a deep crimson.

People gather as they wait for the sun to go down and the appearance of the "Blood moon" in Berlin on July 27, 2018.

The eclipse is also known as the blood or red moon because when eclipsed, the moon looks red.

From 9.30pm to 11.13pm, the moon will be totally eclipsed.

"The moon will remain in a very faint penumbral shadow for about an hour after that, but this is typically too light a shadow for the naked eye to notice the difference between that and the full moon that follows".

During this total eclipse, the Moon - earth's natural satellite - will turn striking shade of red.

The lunar eclipse will coincide with the closest approach of Mars to Earth, PTI reported.

As Dr Gregory Brown, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, explains: "At this time, the moon passes into the shadow of the Earth, blocking the light from the sun".

Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear.

And yes, you'll likely hear this eclipse being referred to as the "blood moon".

At least 200 people flocked to Observatory Hill in Sydney's CBD, and also to Dover Heights in the east, as the moon moved into the Earth's shadow, becoming darker and turning redder as sunlight passed through Earth's atmosphere.
