According to a National Geographic report, the eclipse is expected to be visible from the part of North, South and Central Americas and some parts of Western Europe.
The full Moon will be in the Earth's shadow from 03:34 GMT to 06:51 GMT. During this state the moon can appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than when the moon is furthest from earth. The Earth passes directly between the sun and the moon, blocking off the light supply and turning the moon red. It will be the only complete eclipse of the moon this year.
Total or partial lunar eclipses happen at least twice a year on average, Florent Deleflie, an astronomer at the Observatory of Paris-PSL told AFP.
The total eclipse of the moon will last 62 minutes, starting at 8:41 p.m.
Here are five things to know about the eclipse. The "super" part comes from the fact that the Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth - when it will be marginally bigger in the sky than usual. Hartigan works at Rice University in Texas.
The moon on January 20 will also be a supermoon.
Are you going to watch the lunar eclipse?
"I would really encourage it", he said. "It's a natural phenomenon that still intrigues us". The third class - penumbral eclipses - are hard to see.
The full moon is seen as it rises near the Lincoln Memorial, Saturday, 19 March 2011, in Washington.
Space experts are urging us to look to the skies this evening, as tonight's moon will be turning a stunning dark orange. That is because the reduced amount of sunlight which reaches the moon is scattered by the Earth's atmosphere. In essence, you'd be seeing a solar eclipse.
What time is the total lunar eclipse?
This only happens when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned, with Earth in the middle. We want to hear from you.
Any lunar eclipse can be called a "blood moon" these days. This means each eclipse is essentially identical to others that have occurred previously.
Sorin is one of those people.
