The eclipse is going to begin from 10:44 PM on 27 July and end at 4:58 AM. However, the Greeks believed in the scientific understanding of the eclipse and how the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow.
Stargazers in New Delhi should look to the sky at 1 a.m. local time for totality while those in Bangkok can catch the lunar phenomenon at 2:30 a.m.
Lunar fans across the United Kingdom will be able to catch a glimpse of the spectacular event during which the moon's surface is stained red. Even after all these years, scientists are still learning about the moon from lunar eclipses. The moon will be in flawless alignment with the sun and Earth on Friday, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun.
The eclipse will also be visible to most parts of Africa‚ Europe‚ the Middle East and eastern Asia. According to specialists, the eclipse of July 27, 2018 is termed the longest lunar eclipse of the twenty-first century, because it should last about 103 minutes. "If there are extra particles in the atmosphere, from say a recent volcanic eruption, the moon will appear a darker shade of red". It'll be a lovely four hours there, hanging in our sky, passing above us with high visibility (hopefully) across the whole world - except for North America.
Residents in Australia will be able to see the lunar eclipse as the moon sets, while those in eastern Brazil and western Europe can see it as the moon is rising. The moon will start to turn red around 5.30am (AEST) as the total eclipse starts, and ends around 7.13am. "The second phase of the partial lunar eclipse will be seen until 3.49 am".
The UK will have one of the best views of the eclipse in the world at dusk on Friday, as the moon turns blood red for hours.
The Blood Moon is an occurrence where sunlight causes the eclipsing sun to appear red in colour.
Australians are lucky to see the blood moon this year.
The live stream, which you can find here, will kick off on the night of the eclipse at 7.30pm BST (6.30pm UTC). Putting to rest all apprehensions about the risks associated with viewing the eclipse with a naked eye, Duari said, "No special filters are required to protect our eyes like those used for watching solar eclipses".
