When and where to watch the Blood Moon in Sweden

The total eclipse will last up to 2h 43m IST on 28 July.

This would mark the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, the British Royal Astronomical Society confirmed. The Moon will take three hours and 55 minutes to cross the Earth's dark shadow during its sojourn.

"They will move through reasonably quickly but if that coincides with the peak moment of the eclipse, they could obscure the moon". 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.

In Invercargill, there was five minutes between sunrise at 8.12am and moonset shortly after, with the moon entirely within Earth's shadow.

Lunar eclipses occur from two to four times a year, but not all of them are visible.

Andrew Jacob, curator at the Sydney Observatory, said hundreds of people had paid to watch the event from the observatory.

The rising full moon will also change from shining silver to deep blood-red during the eclipse.

Posts on social media that have gone viral claim that Mars will appear as large as the moon tonight, that is not true.

The longest eclipse of the 20th century fell on July 16, 2000. During the course of the eclipse, Mars will sit at one of its closest points to Earth in its orbit.

Rain and cloudy skies could prevent sky gazers from watching Friday's lunar eclipse in Delhi, the city's Nehru Planetarium has said. "We here at SASTRA are gearing up to get moonstruck", Rakesh Ramesh, a student from Sastra college said.

On December 26 next year, people in Brunei will be experien-cing a partial solar eclipse when the moon passes in front of the Sun. Apps such as The Photographer's Ephemeris and PhotoPills give detailed information on things such as moonrise times and the position of the moon in the sky based on geographical location.

And yes, you'll likely hear this eclipse being referred to as the "blood moon". "Hope it doesn't rain tonight".

Those who live in the Middle East, eastern Africa, southern Asia and India will have the best views of the spectacle.

The combination of a supermoon and total lunar eclipse creating a blood moon last occurred in 1982 and will not happen again until 2033.

The lunar eclipse can be seen from anywhere on the night side of Earth.

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. Pregnant women are asked to stay indoors too. The entire eclipse, including the penumbral and partial phases, will take six hours and 14 minutes from start to finish.
