The total lunar eclipse is given the "blood" nickname because of the "beautiful" red color caused by the projection of all of the Earth's sunrises and sunsets onto its surface, Petro told ABC News earlier this year, before the super blue blood moon event that took place on January 31.

A lunar eclipse happens when the moon passes directly behind the earth and the moon is eclipsed by the shadow of the earth.

Mars is very bright and red throughout July and August this year, but the eclipse night will be a very special night.

So where can you see the total lunar eclipse?

Whether Hagee, Begley and others' predictions come true or not, the eclipse will be visible over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas on Friday, July 27, for approximately 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Due to this reddish colour, a totally eclipsed moon is sometimes called a blood moon.

Before this launch, SpaceX got rid of a backlog of their Block 4 rockets by launching without landing them back on Earth. SpaceX plans to only fly Block 5 stages of the Falcon 8 rocket from here onwards, without any major upgrades.


A "super blue blood moon" is a combination of a supermoon, blue moon and lunar eclipse.

The eclipse will be visible across much of the world, but not in North America. And because of this shadow, the surface of the moon appears red, giving it the name of Blood Moon.

The full moon in July is also known as "mini-moon" because it is at the farthest distance from the Earth and seems small.

Mostly a lunar eclipse occurs twice or thrice a year, but this one will be rare owing to its long duration and visibility from globally. Sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere will light the moon in a dramatic fashion, turning it red. However, the Greeks believed in the scientific understanding of the eclipse and how the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow.

NASA says that a lunar eclipse over 100 minutes will occur on Friday, making it the longest lunar eclipse of the century.

The next total lunar eclipse visible from start to finish from anywhere in Africa is in 2025 and is expected to start at 18h27. North America, most of the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean will miss out entirely. In one of the sky's wonderful coincidences, the Mars opposition happens on July 27 too. Mars will appear about 10 times brighter than usual the last few days of the month, with peak brightness occurring on July 31. Eastern time, according to Space.com.
