The longest lunar eclipse of this century will take place this Friday, July 27. Astronomers nickname it the Super Blue Blood Moon since it glows a rusty red during the eclipse with bits of blue light illuminating the Moon when “sunlight has to filter through the Earth’s atmosphere,” The Verge reported. The space phenomenon will last a total of one hour and 43 minutes. The downside to the eclipse’s lengthy appearance is that the Moon may look smaller and dimmer from Earth’s view, the publication added.

Those in the Middle East and parts of Europe will have the best, raw view of the eclipse. Unfortunately, North America will miss the Moon passing through Earth’s shadow, but fear not, as it will occur again on January 21, 2019. Not to mention, you can watch the historic event online via the livestream below. To learn more about best viewing locations during the eclipse, head over to Time and Date’s official website.
