Friday’s Extra-Long Lunar Eclipse

There is a total lunar eclipse will occur on July 27, 2018. This eclipse will also be the longest total lunar eclipse in this century. Totality will last approximately 103 minutes

NPR reports

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first: You won’t be able to see this Friday’s epic lunar eclipse in person if you live in North America (aside from a very small portion of eastern Canada and parts of the eastern Caribbean).

But here’s the good news: if you are almost anywhereelse, you’ll probably be able to see at least a portion of the event.

Prime viewing is in eastern and southern Africa, the Middle East, eastern Europe and south Asia, based on a NASA map.

If you’re in a place where you won’t be able to see the eclipse in person, there are still ways to watch it. The organization Slooh is going to be live streaming it here.
