No protective eyewear is needed and the eclipsedmoon will be visible in large parts of Europe and South America between sunset and midnight, as well as much of Asia and Australia, between midnight and sunrise on Saturday. The eclipse is estimated to start in India at 11:44pm IST on Friday night and the total lunar eclipse 2018 is expected to begin at 1am IST.
NASA said the reason the eclipse lasted more than one hour and 40 minutes was because the moon went "directly through the center of the Earth's shadow". That means the planet and the sun will be on exact opposite sides of the Earth and will shine its best.
"(But) the really spectacular eclipses are the total solar eclipses, you have to travel to see those, they're really localised", Dr Jacob said. The period of totality for this eclipse will last 1 hour and 2 minutes.
As the full moon moved into Earth's shadow, it darkened, but it didn't disappear.
The phenomenon dubbed as the "super blue blood moon" was last witnessed in 1866. The Bible contains references to the moon turning into blood and some ultra-Orthodox Jews consider lunar eclipses ominous and a cause for moral contemplation.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the darkest part of the earth's shadow.
In ancient times, this phenomenon was thought to be a bad omen, but now it is understood that it is simply due to the scattering of light by the air in our atmosphere. As reported by Wired, the next one near this size won't come until 2029, and there won't be a longer one until 2123 - so don't hold your breath for that.
The length of the eclipse is determined by the alignment of the sun, Earth and the moon, as well as the distance between the moon and our planet.
