Blood Moon to bring the longest lunar eclipse seen for some time

An extra long lunar eclipse blood moon will be visible on the night of July 27th here in Trafford and of course Greater Manchester.

It will also be a special night for budding astronomers and photographers as the planet Mars will be more illuminated than it has been in the past decade.

The lunar eclipse will last 1 hour and 43 minutes and will leave the moon looking a very red and will begin at 9.06pm and will be at maximum at 9.21pm.

You can view the moon from a south-easterly direction and we suggest bringing your best equipment for this one, timelapse is always a good one on a tripod.

A lunar eclipse takes place every two years and are spectacular to watch.
