According to timeanddate.com, the second total lunar eclipse this year can be seen in large parts of Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.
It is expected to last for 103 minutes. With this record, it is considered to be the longest eclipse of the 21st century.
This phenomenon is also called as Blood Moon. This is due to the moon’s appearance in visible reddish-orange glow.
When the eclipse will happen, the moon is also at its farthest from the Earth. This will result to the appearance of the moon smaller than the usual.
