Fiery Mars will add to the spectacle as it appears directly below the blood moon at close to its maximum brightness. South-eastern observers will be able to see the eclipse for somewhat longer than north-western ones. That same day, parts of the world will see a total lunar eclipse.

"Contrary to solar eclipses this phenomenon is completely safe to see through the naked eye... plus you have plenty of time to savour the majestic dance of heavenly bodies since it will last one hour and 43 minutes", ISSA founder Kristian Zarb Adami said.

On July 27, the moon will turn red and darken as it passes through the shadow of Earth blocking the sun.

According to the Science News, Nigeria will experience total lunar eclipse, which would be is fully visible in Lagos.

It might not look like much now, but scientists claim that the Earth's moon may have supported life 4 billion years ago, around the same time that life was starting on Earth. The reddish hue of the Moon is because the earth has an atmosphere and when the sun's light reaches the atmosphere, gases in the air actually scatter or bend the light. But during a lunar eclipse, the glow of the moon has a much less intense brightness than the sun. Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear.

Think of it this way: If you were standing on the moon and staring at the sun (not recommended), the earth would eventually obscure the sun, and you'd just see a ring of fiery light. During Friday's eclipse, the moon will be passing nearly directly through the middle of the shadow, maximising the time that moon spends in darkness.

This lunar eclipse will be soft north of the Earth's shadow, and it might be the longest eclipse for this time.

During the Mars "close approach" on July 31, 2018, the red planet will be at a distance of 35.8 million miles.

The free viewing session is scheduled for July 27 at 2:30 p.m. ET.

Yes, they will. It will be best visible in the eastern regions of Ukraine.

Other objects will also be visible Although not as distinct as Mars, other planets will also make an appearance in the night sky.

It depends partly on "how cloudy or transparent those parts of the Earth's atmosphere are which enable sunlight to reach the moon", Bailey told Agence France-Presse (AFP). The Middle East, west and central Asia, as well as major parts of Africa will join India in spotting these celestial phenomena.

Look at the Moon today and you'll see a barren rock, but that might not always have been the case. That's why lunar eclipses are also called blood moons.
