Experts say that the phenomenon will be clearly visible from any high-rise or open space. The last time this happened was in 1982 and the next one will happen in 2033.
"This is the first total lunar eclipse since September 28 2015 an it has been nearly seven years since the Moon entered the Earth's umbral shadow as deeply as this one", Slooh astronomer Paul Cox said. The moon could also appear to be blood red or dark brown. It appears to be around 14% bigger and also it becomes 30% brighter than the average full moon. However, aside from February, our months are longer than this period, meaning that every couple of years there is a month with two full moons. The recent super moon phenomenon was on January 1.
A passage from the Book of Acts 2:20 supporting the blood moon and eclipse prophecy reads: "The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and glorious day of the Lord coming". And, unlike a solar eclipse, you can look directly at a lunar eclipse without any special eye protection. The time when we may first detect a slight darkening from the penumbra on the upper left side of the moon is not until about 6:20 a.m.
For the first time since March 31, 1866, we will see a blood moon, a blue moon and a super moon all at once. For rest of India, the event will take place between 5:18 PM and 6:21 PM IST.
Here on Guam, the eclipse will begin at 9:48pm and will last about an hour and 16 minutes.

"Also, the full moon will be slightly larger than normal given that this is also a supermoon, so astrophotography will be more spectacular than normal".
NASA will also be covering the eclipse.
Just like the total solar eclipse in the United States last August cooled the Earth's surface, a lunar eclipse cools the moon's surface.
