It's only called a blood moon because when a total lunar eclipse happens the moon looks sort of red and also "blood moon" sounds cool and mysterious. It should not be considered an invitation to satanic sex rituals of humans or horses.

The last time such an event took place was on January 31, 2018, and the next total lunar eclipse will not happen until May 26, 2021, the bureau said. It will be on the intervening night of July 27 and 28 with a duration of 1 hour and 43 minutes, making it the longest one.

As of now, the lunar eclipse can be seen only on timeanddate.com/live/. But various media outlets, including Global News, will be live-streaming the eclipse for viewers around the world beginning at 3 p.m.

The Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands will also live stream the event from its observatory here.

The eclipse of the moon will not be visible from North America or most of the Pacific. The webcast should kick off at 2:30 p.m. EDT (18:30 UT).

Skywatchers in New South Wales and Queensland lost sight of the moon near the end of the eclipse but the rest of the country was treated to the entire eclipse. The moon will go through three stages, a partial eclipse, then a total, then a partial one again.

Thai stargazers will be staying up into the wee hours of Saturday to witness the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, as a "super blood moon" dazzles the world.

The moon is set to turn red on Friday in the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century, visible across Europe. Furthermore, the Moon will be at apogee - farthest from the Earth in its orbit, on July 27 and will be moving at a slower speed in its orbit. These latter events, which occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow, are safe to view directly with the naked eye, telescopes or binoculars.

The total eclipse will be most visible in our skies in the south-west between 6.20am and 7.20am.
