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.
