During a lunar eclipse, we can see the Earth's shadow on the moon.

Sometimes they are penumbral eclipses, where the moon passes through Earth's fainter outer shadow, which isn't quite visible to the human eye.

The "totality" period, when light from the Moon is totally obscured, will last for one hour, 43 minutes.

As you would expect, the shadow of the Earth looks like a disk.

Nigeria will on Friday night experience a spectacular total lunar eclipse, which will last for one hour, a professor, Augustine Ubachukwu, has said.

The event will not occur in the United Kingdom until 9.21pm, and will last until 10.13pm.

The total eclipse would be visible over most of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America on Friday and Saturday.

According to National Geographic, an Inca myth told the story of a jaguar that attacked and ate the moon (giving it its red colour).

The longest "blood moon" eclipse this century will coincide with Mars' closest approach in 15 years to offer skygazers a thrilling astronomical double bill on Friday, astronomers say.

Earth will cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse.

While other colours in the spectrum are blocked and scattered by the Earth's atmosphere, red light tends to make it through easier.

If you live in North America, you will not be able to see the marathon celestial event in person - unless you live in the far eastern part of Newfoundland.

"Every couple of years or so, the Earth overtakes Mars on the inside as it orbits the Sun, so Mars is closest to us".

Sky-watchers will also be able to see Mars burning brightly in the sky, looking like an orange-red star. The Mars opposition is when Mars, Earth and the Sun form a straight line during the course of their orbits.

A few other planets are also visible in the coming weeks.

People also might have noticed five planets - Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars - all together in the evening sky lately.

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".

Total lunar eclipse is very rare and only 30 per cent of all lunar eclipses are total.
