The longest lunar eclipse representing the blood moon and observed in sky Friday night.
Most of the eclipse occurs in eastern hemisphere during night and western hemisphere in daylight as people across North America cannot experience it.
Although, the planet Mars appears the brightest similar to the blood moon. These two objects are observed in sky.
Lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon. Considered as the blood moon as in perfect alignment on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun and light falls on moon. These event happens about 43 minutes and 4 hours for the whole phase of lunar eclipse at 1 p.m. Eastern time and ending at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time
When the full moon moves into Earth’s shadow, it will darken, but it won’t disappear. Sunlight passing through Earth’s atmosphere will light the moon turning it red.
People in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and Asia will have the best view. While the final stages of the eclipse after sunset will be visible in parts of South America.
For those in the Middle East and Madagascar, the eclipse will occur about midnight, and people in Europe and Africa will have the best view between sunset and midnight. Asia, Indonesia and Australia will see it between midnight and sunrise Saturday.
And unlike solar eclipses, especially the total solar eclipse in August 2017, the lunar eclipse is safe to view with the naked eye or binoculars. You can watch direct live telecast from Rome.
