When the three celestial bodies are perfectly lined up, however, the Earth's atmospherescatters blue light from the sun while refracting or bending red light onto the moon, usually giving it a rosy blush. With Mars "in oppostion" the Red Planet and the Sun will be on exact opposite sides of Earth.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest in almost 60,000 years: 34.6 million miles.
"If you were standing on the moon in this eclipse, you would see the sun and then the earth would come in the way and blot out the sun", said Fabian.
Life on the Moon could have originated much as it did on Earth but the more likely scenario is that it would have been brought in by a meteorite, according to Schulze-Makuch. "Astrology is not something we follow".
You don't need any kind of special equipment in order to see the Blood Moon 2018 on July 27 as it will be visible from the naked eye. For a long time after its formation, the moon was largely molten, with an ocean of magma spewing gases into its sky. That's an hour and 43 minutes in total.
But you're going to need to be in the right place to see it - and it's nearly a blink-and-you-miss-it event. While some tabloids have predicted the lunar eclipse will mean some tragic event or even the end of the world, there is not cause for concern.
The moon will rise at 6:05 p.m. on July 27 and will set at 5:44 a.m. on July 28.
The total eclipse will end by 2.45 am on Saturday. The longesttotal lunar eclipse of the last century was on July 16, 2000 and lasted for 1 hour and 46.4 minutes, according to EarthSky.
The name of this eclipse is the Micro Blood Moon Eclipse as on the day of the eclipse, the moon will be at its furthest from the Earth making it appear smaller to the eye.
In South America, West Africa and Europe, the eclipse will begin with the rising of the Moon, in East Asia and Australia - on the contrary, with its setting.
If you saw the most recent solar eclipse (full or partial), you'll remember that the circle of light looks colorless. The first lunar eclipse, a "super blood moon" occurred on January 31. The Moon will disappear into the Earth's darkest shadow known as Umbra, he said.
Red light has a better chance of doing so because shorter wavelengths of light are scattered more efficiently by the molecules in our atmosphere and red has a relatively long wavelength. "The darkness of the Lunar eclipse depends on the number of dust particles in the Earth's troposphere", said Žiberna. This region will be the best view of the Eclipse.

Longest Lunar Eclipse of the Century
A lunar eclipse is when the sunlight's path to the moon is blocked by the Earth, with the moon falling in the Earth's shadow . At just about one hour and 43 minutes, it will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century, according to EarthSky .
