The thing is that it is going to be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century.
Unlike January's Super Blue Blood Moon, when the planetoid was circling quite near us, on the day of this eclipse, the Full Moon is at its farthest from Earth, appearing smaller in the sky, and taking on the "micro" title.
Protective eyewear was recommended during the solar eclipse to protect people's eyes from the bright light of the sun.
The first eclipse that appeared was a solar eclipse that took place on July 13. Atmospheres, similar to glass lenses, can refract sunlight.
The total lunar eclipse and blood moon will play out in select regions of the world, as North America and the north-western parts of South America will not be able to witness the event.
When the moon rises in the southeast at 8:44 pm the eclipse will have already started, and be in a partial phase.

Now, Twitter said Friday, it's struggling to maintain users users too, a day after Facebook said it saw a user drop in Europe . The earnings call did not touch on a new looming issue for the company, which President Donald Trump tweeted about Thursday.
A "blood moon" happens when Earth's moon is in full eclipse and has no special astronomical significance, rather, the view in the sky is striking as the usually whitish moon becomes red or ruddy-brown.
As the light scatters through the atmosphere, certain bands of colour on the visible spectrum are filtered out and fall on the moon.
By volume, about 80% of Earth's atmosphere is made of nitrogen gas, or N2, and most of the rest is oxygen gas, or O2.
"It looks very much like the Moon was habitable at this time", Schulze-Makuch said.
Recent red skies are apparently down to the specific scattering of light particles through the atmosphere. While a lunar eclipse occurrence is not a rare one, the perceptions surrounding it differ world over.
If the weather cooperates, most of eastern Africa, the Middle East, and central Asia should see the full and total lunar eclipse on Friday. While, a section of scientists have also indicated the possibility of high tides and sea erosion along Kerala coast. It will be visible nearly everywhere except North and Central America. People there can watch on one of several live webcasts.
Another factor that is playing a role in the eclipse's duration is the path that the moon is taking through the Earth's shadow.
On the evening of 27 July there will be a unique lunar Eclipse, which, according to NASA, will be most prolonged in the XXI century.
