It will begin when the full moon enters the Earth's shadow (Penumbra) at 1.14am on July 28.
The period of complete eclipse - known as "totality", when the moon appears darkest - will last from 1930 to 2113 GMT. As such, Mars should be easily seen by the naked eye, even in light-polluted metropolitan areas like Taipei.
Despite being bigger and brighter than usual, Mars will also appear fuzzier because of seasonal dust storms that are kicked up as the planet warms when it comes closer to the sun.
Fearing the jaguar would come down to earth to continue its assault, people would throw spears at the moon and create noise to scare it away. Because of how Earth's atmosphere filters blue light, the moon appears red during a lunar eclipse. The effect of the atmosphere is to bend the light from each celestial object by about half a degree, which also happens to be their apparent diameters in the sky.
"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!"
It noted that there would be total lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 and January 21, 2019; partial lunar eclipse on July 16/17, 2019; transit mercury eclipse on November 21, 2019; and penumbral lunar eclipse January 10, 2020. The partial eclipse starts in India at 11:44pm IST, while the total eclipse begins at 1am IST.
Why does the moon turn red in a Blood Moon eclipse?
What is Blood moon or Red Moon?
As the entire eclipse will occur when the moon is fairly close to the horizon, the main thing to ensure is that you have a clear sightline to the south east.
Unlike a solar eclipse, the lunar event can be viewed without wearing protective eye gear.
The rare event occurs when the Earth appears in a straight line between the Moon and the Sun. The entire U.S. won't be able to see a full lunar eclipse again until January.
It depends partly on "how cloudy or transparent those parts of the Earth's atmosphere are which enable sunlight to reach the moon", he told AFP. From Whanganui to Wellington there is just a slim chance of glimpsing the totally-eclipsed Moon as the Sun peeks above the horizon.
Opposition occurs when Earth is positioned with the Sun lined up directly behind it, and an outlying planet, such as Mars, Saturn, or Jupiter, lined up on the opposite side.
Dave Kelbe, a principal scientist at the Centre for Space Science Technology, plans to go and photograph the early-morning celestial event at Middlemarch.
Explosion reported outside of USA embassy in Beijing
Authorities have yet to comment of the incident and an embassy spokesman said he was still collecting information. China and the US are in the middle of a trade dispute. "All Indians are safe", Bambawle reportedly said.
