While the whole of Asia, including India, and Eastern Africa will be able to watch the entire "blood moon" eclipse, the rare phenomenon will be visible in parts of South-America, Europe, and Australia.
Also, those in the United Kingdom will miss a section of the eclipse due to the moon being below our horizon when it starts, which gives south-eastern observers a slightly better advantage than the north-western ones.
Incredibly, the Moon was entirely in Earth's shadow (totality), turning it a dark blood red, for a full 1 hour and 43 minutes.
The total eclipse will be most visible in our skies in the south-west between 6.20am and 7.20am.
The astronomers and sky gazers in the GCC and across the globe watched the celestial spectacle, where the moon gots eclipsed by the earth's shadow.
"If you were standing on the moon in this eclipse, you would see the sun and then the earth would come in the way and blot out the sun", said Fabian.
"And the density of dust increasing in the atmosphere can cause the moon to appear a particularly deep red, and indeed it has the same effect on our sunsets and sunrises".
The fullest eclipse, at 2022 GMT, was visible from Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East, much of Asia and Australi a though clouds blocked out the moon in some places.
The long duration of this eclipse is partly due to the fact that the moon will make a near-central passage through Earth's umbra - the darkest, most central part of the shadow. But a small amount of light does actually pass through the outer parts of the Earth's atmosphere and reflect off the moon.
This gives the moon a unusual red glow as it disappears into the Earth's shadow.
The July 2018 lunar eclipse will be the longest one till June 9, 2123. During the phenomenon, the moon appears red as it is illuminated by sunlight filtered through the Earth's atmosphere, hence the term "blood moon".
