How the lunar eclipse looked above south-east Queensland

A blood moon will appear in the night sky around much of the world on Friday night

A significant celestial event will be visible in Kilkenny tomorrow night as the moon is totally eclipsed by the Earth for 103 minutes, turning it a deep shade of red.

Moonrise in the United Kingdom will be at around 8.50pm.

After that, the shadow of the Earth will slowly retreat across the lunar surface until the partial eclipse comes to completion at 11.19pm. Won't the sky be too bright for us to see all of this?

From the Cape of Good Hope to the Middle East, and from the Kremlin to Sydney Harbour, thousands of people turned their eyes to the stars to watch the moon which turned dark before shining orange, brown and crimson as it moved into the earth's shadow.

For about half the world, the moon will be partly or fully in Earth's shadow from 1714 to 2328 GMT - six hours and 14 minutes in all. If you want to watch online the lunar eclipse live stream, just read on for the stream and everything you need to know about the phenomenon.

But the eclipse won't be visible to those in North America. Between 10:30 p.m. EST and 1:50 a.m., the moon will pass through the darkest part of the Earth's shadow.

According to NASA, the next lunar eclipse that is this long will occur in 2123. It will also be seen perfectly in Africa and in Asia, and partly in Australia and in South America.

Where can you see the blood moon in July 2018?

The longest "Blood Moon" eclipse this century will coincide with Mars' closest approach to earth in 15 years tonight, with the event expected to be visible from Ireland.

According to Hindu beliefs, celestial bodies like the sun and moon emit negative energy during an eclipse and so some temples in India were closed to minimize any disturbance. You can tune it at the eclipse timings and watch the entire event without any interruptions.

"The earth's atmosphere then turns the light red in the same way that the sun appears when it is going down", Prof Fabian said.

Dr Duncan Steel, of Otago's Centre for Space Science Technology, said the colouration of this so-called "blood moon" - a spectacle shrouded in ancient superstition - was due to some sunlight leaking through Earth's atmosphere and reaching the moon. It will also be almost three times brighter than Sirius - the brightest star in the night sky. This light appears reddish.
