Longest Lunar Eclipse of the 21st Century to Occur Saturday Morning

"It's likely some people will miss the event because of the storms but, still, it's worth looking out for and being hopeful".
Mars will be easily visible with the naked eye, if the weather permits, as it will be extremely close to the moon for the duration of the eclipse. While this event may not seem as dramatic in comparison, the Moon will still be observed in hues of scarlet red. Someone will be able to see him personally for an hour and 43 minutes.
The free viewing session is scheduled for July 27 at 2:30 p.m. ET. The penumbral phase of the lunar eclipse will start at 8:15pm Doha local time. But a partial eclipse will begin by 11.55 pm on Friday when the moon starts entering the earth's shadow.
"If Earth partially blocks the sun, and the darkest part of its shadow falls across the moon's surface, it is called a partial eclipse". The researchers for this study propose that in the early days of our solar system, it's possible that meteorites that came in contact with Earth and "blasted off its surface" could have also landed on the moon.
The red color is a product of Earth's atmosphere, which scatters light from the sun and it is reflected onto the moon. This weekend's eclipse will last so long because the Moon is almost at apogee, the point in its orbit when it is furthest from the Earth.
Co-incidentally, Mars also reaches the point in its orbit directly opposite the sun from us on July 27. A lunar eclipse is when the earth gets between the sun and the full moon.
In a rare treat, Mars will add to the wonder on Friday night as it appears directly below the blood moon at near maximum brightness.
"Mars will be 15 times brighter than the brightest star in the sky on Friday", Moore said.
Planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will also be visible in the evening.
The nighttime spectacle will be topped off by the presence of the International Space Station as it orbits the Earth. Robin Scagell, vice-president of the Society for Popular Astronomy, said: "It's a bright white star-like object but it doesn't twinkle and it's really unmistakable." 5.
Scientists have perfectly adequate explanations for the phenomenon other than impending armageddon.
But as the moon progresses into the umbra a brilliant trick of light will paint the moon a deep red to orange colour, rather than hide it from sight.
