The longest lunar eclipse of the century is coming Friday

Whether Hagee, Begley and others' predictions come true or not, the eclipse will be visible over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas on Friday, July 27, for approximately 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Dr Brown said: "The UK will be treated to a rare total lunar eclipse, also known as the "blood moon". NASA explains it as when the Earth comes between the moon and the sun, casting a shadow over the moon. The penumbra is the partial outer shadow, and the umbra is the full, dark shadow. The shadow cast by the moon is much smaller than that produced by our own planet. The earth blocks sunlight from reaching the moon.

Depending on the weather conditions in your area, it may be rusty, brick-colored or blood-red.

In Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane the moon will begin to turn red at around 4.24am Australian Eastern Standard Time on Saturday. This eclipse will also be the longest eclipse we have had this century!

Now, another stunning blood moon is about to cross our skies and we're here to warn you that things are about to get VERY moody. "If you were on the Moon, you would see a total solar eclipse as the Earth would be blocking the Sun".

Scientists say the reason this Friday's lunar eclipse is especially long is because the moon is passing nearly directly through the central part of Earth's shadow.

"As the Dundee Law is the highest point in the city, you are bound to get great views of the total lunar eclipse".

But there is some bad news: If you're in North America, you won't be able to see it yourself (but there will be live video online).

Dr Gregory Brown, of the Royal Observatory Greenwich, said: "We miss a section of the eclipse due to the moon being below our horizon when it starts".

EarthSky.org has a map showing more exact times. It'll be a lovely four hours there, hanging in our sky, passing above us with high visibility (hopefully) across the whole world - except for North America. Although U.S. residents won't be able to see the eclipse, there's still a reason to be excited.

The planet Mars is shown May 12, 2016 in this NASA Hubble Space Telescope view when it was 50 million miles from Earth.

One of those promoting the idea that the Red Moon marks the end of the world is a pastor called Paul Begley, who is from Indiana.
