In total, the full lunar eclipse will last one hour and 42 minutes, the longest it will be this century.

The eclipse will be visible in South Africa from 20h24 and then from 21h30 to 23h13. The best viewing spots on Friday will be near the Middle East, Southeastern Africa, Asia, and India. The total lunar eclipse will last almost 103 minutes, which makes it the century's longest.

Andrew Batchelor, founder of Dundee Culture, said: "The longest lunar eclipse this century takes place on Friday".

Sky Live TV will broadcast the lunar eclipse from Hess, Namibia and has the option for Spanish commentary also. It'll start around 1:14 p.m.

Special arrangements have also been made at the Lifelong Learning Institute for seeing the lunar eclipse and Mars opposition.

It said the dam was at risk of collapse, and rain and strong winds predicted for the next few days could make the situation worse. Villagers are seen stranded on rooftops of houses after an under-construction dam collapsed in Attapeu, Laos, on July 24, 2018.

Hagee's predictions gained traction in 2014-15 when each blood moon in a tetrad - a series of four lunar eclipses in two years - all fell on Jewish holidays: on April 15, 2014 (Passover); October 8, 2014 (Sukkot); April 4, 2015 (Passover), and September 28, 2015 (Sukkot).

The planet Mars is shown May 12, 2016 in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope view when it was 50 million miles from Earth. By 10:15pm, it will be leaving Earth's shadow.

As the Moon continues on its orbit, and pulls away from the Umbra, stargazers will notice another partial lunar eclipse.

A lunar eclipse can be seen from Earth at night.

Here's when totality will begin in the regions where the entire eclipse will be visible.

Moon may have harboured life years ago
It adds: "The Sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the awful day of the LORD come". Lunar eclipses occur only during a full moon , which means the moon and the sun are on opposite sides of the Earth.

Also known as a total lunar eclipse, it happens only when the earth passes exactly between the sun and the moon. This glorious sight occurs because of the way sunlight bends (refracts) through the Earth's atmosphere.

This happens because blue light undergoes stronger atmospheric scattering, so red light will be the most dominant color highlighted as sunlight passes through our atmosphere and casts it on the moon. "While more common than the solar eclipse, the event is nonetheless fairly unusual, with even partial eclipses rarely happening a few times or twice per year and each is only visible from a portion of the Earth." 3.

For those who aren't able to see the lunar eclipse this month, July has another treat in store for skygazers when Mars makes a close approach to Earth.

This year has been unusual with regard to eclipses.
