The century's longest lunar eclipse will occur on July 27, but it will not be visible in North America.

The lunar eclipse will end at 11.14pm, with a total duration of one hour and 42 minutes.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon passes through the Earth's shadow. The lunar eclipse will also be visible in India, and this will be a "Blood Moon" as well, where the Earth's satellite takes on a reddish tinge. The lunar eclipse on January 31 lasted an hour and 16 minutes when the moon passed to the south of the shadow's centre. "The second phase of the partial lunar eclipse will be seen until 3.49 am".

"This smaller and slower-moving full moon takes more time to cross the Earth's shadow than does a full moon that is closer to Earth and moving faster in orbit".

The eclipse will be visible from many parts of Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe and South America, and is likely to be webcast live from some of these sights, Ramanujam said. "At 23h13 the moon starts recovering from the eclipse, which will be over by 24h19", ASSA says. All celestial bodies - sun, moon and earth - have to be in flawless alignment for the phenomenon to occur.

Earth will cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse. The best view of the eclipse will be reserved for the Indian Ocean, because it will be facing the Moon.

Central and Southeast Asia: Stargazers in New Delhi should look to the sky at 1 a.m. local time for totality while those in Bangkok can catch the lunar phenomenon at 2:30 a.m.

According to EarthSky.org, the optimal time to view the Blood Moon is at 9:21pm BST, and the total event will last from 8.30pm to 10.13pm BST.

However, going by the way we get excited on seeing the Moon or any other planet in our Solar System, we'll probably lose our minds if we're ever contacted by aliens.

This is due to the moon being below the horizon in Britain when the eclipse begins. Lunar Eclipse is also tied strongly to Astrology, and since its a complete immersion not seen before this century, astrologers have pointed out that it could have an extreme effect on people with Gemini Zodiac sign.

"The Moon is not always in ideal alignment with the Sun and the Earth, so that is why we do not get a lunar eclipse every lunar cycle".
