The moon will turn blood red in Canberra early on Saturday morning

Although U.S. residents won't be able to see the eclipse, they should still be excited because the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter - NASA's robotic spacecraft orbiting the moon - will experience it first-hand, Petro said. Although there are three partial solar eclipses this year, none are visible in the U.S.

"The moon will start changing shape as it enters the shadow of the Earth at 20h24".

The spectacle will be visible across Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, but not North America. Also significant is the distance of the moon from the Earth as it orbits our planet.

But don't worry, even if you don't manage to find a flawless spot, you'll still be able to get a good view of the red moon as it rises in the sky. "This red tint comes from a filtering effect of the Earth's atmosphere.so the intensity of the coloring will depend on the state of the atmosphere". Although U.S. residents won't be able to see the eclipse, there's still a reason to be excited.

Total lunar eclipses are known as blood moons for the reddish glow the natural satellite takes on as the Earth moves between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the otherwise illuminated surface.

On January 31st, the world witnessed its first lunar eclipse of the year, where the moon appeared red in colour and much bigger in size.

"Because lunar eclipses are easy to watch with the unaided eye, you can just go outside and enjoy the view".

One of those promoting the idea that the Red Moon marks the end of the world is a pastor called Paul Begley, who is from Indiana. This occurs at the same time that Mars will reach one of its closest points to the Earth, about 35.9 million miles away. So if bad weather disrupts your opportunity on Friday, there will be more chances.

Why does the moon turn red in a Blood Moon eclipse? Although the viability of that claim is starting to wane, given that we've seen lunar eclipses previously on 14 April and 8 October 2014 as well as 4 April and 28 September 2015, and we're still knocking about. However, the director says, "The planetarium is also making arrangements for Mars viewing".
