However, the Blood Moon will reach totality at 9.21pm, which is when you definitely want to be out there.
It has astronomers across the nation excited. The Mahila Seva Samaj School, in association with Aryabhata Planetarium, will be setting up a high-end telescope in the playground to view the spectacular blood moon.
Here's all you need to know about the chandra grahan.
Unlike a solar eclipse, no special equipment or glasses will be needed to view the total lunar eclipse.
Other incidences of central lunar eclipses will occur in April 2099, June 2094, September 2090, May 2087 and January 2084. In fact, it will be easier to look at than a normal full moon because it won't be as bright due to the lack of sunlight. According to the scientists, the maximum time that a lunar eclipse can occur is one hour 47 minutes, and this is quite close to that.
Chandra Grahan or Total Lunar Eclipse date is July 27 night.

Across the world, from the Taj Mahal to the Eiffel Tower, people will turn their eyes to the sky, hoping to see the blood moon, which appears orange, brown or crimson as sunlight is bent through the earth's atmosphere.
The moon will be fully covered by 8.29pm and last until about 10.15pm, with its appearance varying across Britain, Europe and much of the Eastern Hemisphere.
"Our atmosphere scatters blue light so only the red light passes through and lights up the moon, making it appear a rusty red colour".
Avoid eating cooked food - The popular belief is that during the eclipse, the food that you consume would not get digested properly - leaving you feeling bloated and lethargic. We'll simply be situated on the opposite side of the planet during the event. "There are beliefs that we should not go out and see them, we should not eat during eclipse etc", said Niruj Mohan Ramanujam from National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Pune. For viewers across India, the eclipse, both partial and total, will be visible in its entirety from all parts of the country.
And last but not least: Mars just happens to be in opposition on Friday night as well. The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere.
