The so-called "blood moon", when it turns a deep red, will be visible at different times in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America.

The longest lunar eclipse of the 21st Century is taking place live across the globe right now, Blood Moon Live video streaming in this article below.

All eyes will on the sky tonight as the world is to witness the attractive sight of 'blood moon' as the moon moves into the shadow of the earth for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century.

Friday's incredible eclipse lasted 1 hour and 43 minutes, with many people, including European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst, taking to social media to marvel at the fleeting reddishness of the moon. With a maximum eclipse lasting one hour, 42 minutes, and 57 seconds, this event marks the longest eclipse of its kind that will happen this century.

A blood moon rises over Tel Aviv, Israel, Friday, July 27, 2018. It will also have astronomers on hand to offer commentary on the history and science of lunar eclipses on Facebook Live.

Mr Ubachukwu observed that a lunar eclipse could occur only on the night of a full moon. In fact, you will not be able to see it in North America at all unless you are in a specific part of Newfoundland, Canada, according to Vox. Usually a lunar eclipse totality only lasts for around an hour.

"(But) the really spectacular eclipses are the total solar eclipses, you have to travel to see those, they're really localised", Dr Jacob said.

A lunar eclipse is when the sunlight's path to the moon is blocked by the Earth, with the moon falling in the Earth's shadow. From 1:15am to 2:43am, the moon will be in the middle of the Earth's shadow and will appear reddish in colour.

The next eclipse to last that long will occur on June 9, 2123, but it will not be visible from Australia.
