The moon turns red during a lunar eclipse as seen in New Delhi

"The Moon is not always in ideal alignment with the Sun and the Earth, so that is why we do not get a lunar eclipse every lunar cycle", Brad Tucker, an astronomer with the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, said in a statement.

The eclipse won't be visible from North America, Noah Petro, a scientist for the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, told ABC News.

The lunar event will last for 103 minutes - four minutes short of the longest possible duration an eclipse could last.

Sarika Gharu, an astronomer revealed: "The lunar eclipse on July 27 is said to be the longest blood moon witnessed in 100 years".

During a total lunar eclipse, Earth completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the moon. Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse, referred to as Chandra Grahan and Surya Grahan respectively, hold special significance in the Hindu calendar.

Lunar fans across the United Kingdom will be able to catch a glimpse of the spectacular event during which the moon's surface is stained red.

This makes the moon appear red to people on Earth.

In mainland France, the eclipse will be visible from 10 pm - 10.30 pm and it is expected to last until almost 12.30 am.

"It will last for 103 minutes, making it the longest eclipse of this century", he said. Instead of light hitting the moon's surface, Earth's shadow falls on it. It will take nearly two hours before the moon returns to normal.

This type of eclipse is known as a "blood moon", which means the moon will appear to be a reddish color as some of the sun's ray bend around the Earth.

"As the Dundee Law is the highest point in the city, you are bound to get great views of the total lunar eclipse". The moon, closest to the centre of the shadow, will showcase the maximum eclipse at 1:51 am. And weather permitting, the Full Buck moon should not disappoint. However, North America is going to be miss the phenomena.

But don't worry, even if you don't manage to find a flawless spot, you'll still be able to get a good view of the red moon as it rises in the sky. "At 23h13 the moon starts recovering from the eclipse, which will be over by 24h19", ASSA says.
