Here's How to Stream the Blood Moon

But you might be able to get a good view of Mars. You'll have to stay inside (where it's safe) and instead watch it online.

The longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century will take place this week, on Thursday, June 26 into Friday, June 27. It should not be considered an invitation to satanic sex rituals of humans or horses.

The so-called "blood moon", when it turns a deep red, is visible at different times in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America when the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly, casting Earth's shadow on the moon.

For those looking to capture the astronomical event, preparation is key. This is the longest because for the last four billion years the moon has been moving away from the Earth and has now reached the flawless spot for the lunar alignment. "This does not herald the apocalypse: seeing a lunar eclipse and Mars in the sky is something people should enjoy rather than worry about mediaeval superstitions". A period of complete eclipse, known as "totality", will last from 3:30 5:13 p.m. ET. The peak of the eclipse will occur at 9.22 p.m.

The longest eclipse of the 20th century fell on July 16, 2000.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, earth and moon are aligned and the moon enters the Earth's umbra - the darker, central part of the Earth's shadow. Watch CBSN's live stream of the coverage of the eclipse from Johannesburg and around the world in the player above. When it does, the moon will turn a burnt orange color, as it did during January's Super Blue Blood Moon. From 1:15am to 2:43am, the moon will be in the middle of the Earth's shadow and will appear reddish in colour.

Dr Jacob said: "Anyone on that night-side of the Earth would be able to see the moon go into the eclipse". The partial eclipse of the Moon will begin at 23h 54m IST on July 27.

The Moon sets here in Perth at 7:17 am (AWST) so we'll miss the last 11 minutes of the penumbral phase as the Moon completely leaves the Penumbra at 7:28 pm (AWST). And if you're in the USA, while it is unfortunate that we won't be able to see the eclipse here, it's not the end of the world.
