We say far and wide because there is a full lunar eclipse coming Friday, it's just going to happen on the other side of the world! Additionally, the eclipse will only be visible from Australia as it is beginning and from South America as it is ending. The total lunar eclipse will last almost 103 minutes, which makes it the century's longest.
The entire celestial event will last more than six hours, according to NASA.
During the eclipse, the moon will appear red, giving it the nickname "blood moon".
A'super blue blood moon seen in Rosaria near Santa Fe
Star-gazers are set for a night-time spectacle as a blood moon lunar eclipse will be making an appearance at the end of the week.
In Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane the moon will begin to turn red at around 4.24am Australian Eastern Standard Time on Saturday. Stargazers across large swaths of the globe had the chance to witness a rare "super blue blood Moon" on January 31, 2018, when Earth's shadow bathed our satellite in a coppery hue. Although there are three partial solar eclipses this year, none are visible in the U.S. Since the moon will be at its most distant and smallest, it will take more time to cross the Earth's shadow. This phenomenon will also take place alongside the Blood Moon.
According to NASA scientists: "The exact color that the moon appears depends on the amount of dust and clouds in the atmosphere. The total eclipse is also referred to as the Blood Moon because of the characteristic way in which the moon glows in reddish-orange colour".
