Mars will add to the spectacle shining brightly below the blood moon as it reaches perihelic opposition - where the Red Planet and the sun are on directly opposite sides of Earth. Friday's will be long, lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes.
If you're in a place where you won't be able to see the eclipse in person, there are still ways to watch it. Observers in Kerala and parts of Asia can witness the lunar eclipse of the longest duration for three hours, 54 minutes and 33 seconds from the time of partial eclipse begins when moon turns slightly red, he said. A lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the sun and the Moon, casting a shadow over its satellite.

The eclipse will also be visible in the region covering Australia, Asia, Russia - except the northern part, Africa, Europe, east of South America and Antarctica. The Delta Aquariids meteor shower will also be visible to an extent - the meteor shower will be at its peak on July 30, but even on July 27 (the day of the eclipse), the lack of light from moon will allow us to somewhat spot the meteors. According to Nasa, the moon often turns reddish during totality because the sunlight bending through earth's atmosphere during sunsets and sunrises are then reflected onto the moon.
