The blood moon will be brightening our skies tonight

The Moon goes reddish in colour during the total lunar eclipse as it fails to receive any of the direct sunlight and hence reflects the colours thrown out by the Earth's atmosphere. The totality period of the eclipse will last for one hour and 42 minutes, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Then the Moon will start to gradually come out of Earth's shadow and partial eclipse will end at 3h 49m IST on July 28. The partial eclipse of the Moon will begin at 23h 54m IST on July 27. For four hours, it will be partly in the Earth's shadow.

On the east coast of Australia, the eclipse began at 3.14am (AEST), with the Earth's shadow slowly taking a bite out of the pearly white full moon.
