Andrew Batchelor, founder of Dundee Culture, said: "The longest lunar eclipse this century takes place on Friday".
The next total lunar eclipse visible from start to finish from anywhere in Africa is in 2025 and is expected to start at 18h27.
For those in the Middle East and Madagascar, the eclipse will occur about midnight, and people in Europe and Africa will have the best view between sunset and midnight. The moon will transform into a reddish orange color for 1 hour 43 minutes, according to Nasa.
A Super Blue Blood Moon rises behind the Camlica Mosque on January 31, 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey.
Sarika Gharu, an astronomer revealed: "The lunar eclipse on July 27 is said to be the longest blood moon witnessed in 100 years".
"The penumbral eclipse will begin on July 27 at 10:15pm with its partial phase will kick off at 11:24pm and the total eclipse will be visible at 12:30am on July 28", Rashid said. This glorious sight occurs because of the way sunlight bends (refracts) through the Earth's atmosphere.
Hagee related the history of the phenomenon and potential future occurrences in his book "Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change", which he also turned into a motion picture in honor of the 2015 event.
He says "You know, God spoke to me and told me "go check out the Blood Moon" back in June".

And ahead of the Putin summit, Trump had even expressed concern over the cost of maintaining a USA military presence in Germany. On any level it is astonishing to see a sitting president contradict his own administration this way.
After about two hours the moon will turn red.
It happens when Earth casts its shadow onto the lunar surface as it passes between the sun and moon.
In the US, the lunar eclipse will start around 1:14 p.m. ET, and the maximum period of totality will start around 4:21 p.m. ET, making it too light outside for the blood moon to be visible, Petro said.
Unfortunately, given that the total eclipse is scheduled to occur from 3:30 p.m.to 5:13 p.m. EDT, North Americans will be unable to observe the epic celestial event. If that holds, then the Virtual Telescope Project view of Mars and the moon should be spectacular.
The outcome is generally that a solar eclipse is only seen by a relative few who fall beneath the moon's masking orb.
As the Moon continues on its orbit, and pulls away from the Umbra, stargazers will notice another partial lunar eclipse.
As if the eclipse isn't enough to hold our attention, Mars will be its closest and brightest to its neighbours since 2003. There isn't slated to be another total lunar eclipse that long until the year 2123.
