Skywatchers are in for a rare treat Friday: the longest lunar eclipse of the century.

"If you want a close-up view of the moon as it turns red, a pair of binoculars is helpful", Royal Astronomical Society said. Thousands more enjoyed the show from backyards, balconies and on the streets.

Mars will be in opposition to the Sun, On 27 July that means it will be opposite the Sun in Earth's sky. a planet is said to be in opposition when the Sun, as per the Astronomically, Earth and the planet all align almost for this 1 straight line.

"But now I've seen it I can believe it and I want to be an astronomer to tell other people".

"Since the moon is bright anyway, you'll be able to see it regardless of light pollution, but to see the planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars nearly in line with the moon, you'll want a nice dark spot where light from the city or streets does not pollute the sky too much", Knowles said. This is when the moon changes from its traditional white hue to a deep, nearly blood-like red due to the sun's rays being reflected through the planet's atmosphere.

People in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and Asia had the best view.

Yes, despite searing temperatures in the United Kingdom over the past week the clear skies didn't stick around long enough to provide onlookers with anything like a good view.

The total eclipse will last 1 hour and 43 minutes. But they must clock 72 years to observe the eclipse.

From the Cape of Good Hope to the Middle East, and from the Kremlin to Sydney Harbour, thousands of people turned their eyes to the stars to watch the moon, which turned dark before shining orange, brown and crimson in the shadow. "Eventually the cloud took the moon away, but Mars was still there for the end as twilight arrived in the morning". The entire United States won't be able to see a full lunar eclipse again until January. Miguel also said that it looked like a giant tangerine and that Cairo was actually a little bit colder than Texas was at that moment. "[This will be] the longest [lunar eclipse] in this century", he said.

Before and after this total eclipse phase, the Moon passes into a transitional phase called penumbra: the total duration of these three phases (penumbra, total, penumbra) varies from place to place.

For those who missed the lengthy eclipse on Saturday, they'll get another chance in May 2021.
