World treated to incredible blood moon

Full Moon Zodiac

The eclipse will not be visible to residents of the U.S. as by the time the moon rises at night in the United States, it will have already completed its journey through Earth's shadow, or Umbra.

Mars was also at its closest point to Earth since 2003 last night and will be over the next few days. In eastern Asia, Australia, and parts of the western Pacific, the eclipse will be visible before sunrise on July 28, as the moon sets.

At about 8.30pm the earth began to pass between the setting sun and the moon casting its shadow across the surface.

People gathered at 8am on Saturday to watch a rare celestial event known as a selenelion - where an eclipsed moon and the sun can be seen in the sky at the same moment.

Bayern will not sell wantaway striker Lewandowski, says manager Kovac
We have no interest in selling him and it does not matter if somebody offers 100 or 150million. "It's our decision. No deal so far has had the wow factor but Polish centre-forward Lewandowski definitely does.

The "blood moon" effect is created due to light passing through Earth's atmosphere, which scatters blue light, meaning the moon turns a reddish colour. It won't be visible in the US, but can be seen in parts of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia - depending on the weather. For four hours, it will be partly in the Earth's shadow. Skywatchers around much of the world are looking forward to a complete lunar eclipse that will be the longest this century, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The eclipse will occur just after sunset and last for one hour and 43 minutes.

Update, July 27, 3:27 p.m. PT.: Adds additional information on the lunar eclipse and when the next blood moon will be visible. Unfortunately, if you live in North America you won't be able to see it outside.

In the United Kingdom, rain clouds permitting, the Moon will appear entirely red - fully eclipsed by Earth - from when it rises at 21:00 to 22:15 BST.

Our red moon had some company Friday, when Mars was the closest it's been to Earth in 15 years.

In Turkey, Ayşegül Şibiroglu captured the blood moon eclipse over Bodrum. That's how it gets the dramatic-sounding "blood moon" nickname.

You can still catch the eclipse live despite being on the other side of the world, though! But alas, for those of us here in North America, this lunation won't be visible since it will occur in the late afternoon.
