Century's longest lunar eclipse tonight: All you need to know

When and where to watch the Blood Moon in Sweden

The Dubai Astronomy Group organised a live video feed of the whole eclipse process.

"For serious astronomers, this event does offer an extraordinary opportunity to study Mars through their telescopes". "However, a layperson who might expect to see dramatic details of the surface of Mars would probably be disappointed".

While Canadians won't be able to witness the event first-hand, there are ways to capture it from the comforts of home.

There's an eclipse of the moon tonight?

The Nehru Planetarium has arranged as many as five telescopes and has organised lectures. The light of all the sunsets and sunrises occurring simultaneously is reflected off the moon, making it seem red.

"Our event is sold out", he said yesterday.

Not all the lunar eclipses will lead to a "bloody" show.

"All you have to do is... go outside!", the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) in London said, adding that binoculars will be useful to observe the phenomenon.

Special rituals will also be held at the Jagannath Puri temple in Odisha.

The probability of a simultaneous blood moon and total lunar eclipse is very low, reports say. On average, the totality lasts approximately one hour to one hour and 30 minutes during moon eclipse.

However, north Americans can witness a similar happening in January next year, though the duration of the lunar eclipse will not be such long.

New Zealand will get a short glimpse at the longest lunar eclipse of the century on Saturday morning. "This does not herald the apocalypse: seeing a lunar eclipse and Mars in the sky is something people should enjoy rather than worry about mediaeval superstitions". The partial eclipse of the Moon will begin at 11.54 pm on July 27. It began with a penumbral lunar eclipses on June 10, 1351 and will end with another penumbral eclipse on July 24, 2613.

The red sheen that the moon will take on is entirely dependent on how much dust is in the Earth's atmosphere.

"Until today I thought Mars, Jupiter and the other planets were in the imagination of scientists", Purity Sailepo, 16, told AFP. Though the opposition of Mars is on July 27, it comes closest to us on July 31.

But it's science - orbiting planets in flawless alignment. As a outcome, it will also appear to be the biggest and brightest. The atmosphere filters out most of the sun's blue light, so the moon looks red.

Interestingly, some people feel that the longest lunar eclipse has its own disadvantages.

Unlike a solar eclipse, people can look at a lunar eclipse directly with their own eyes.
