Viewers in central Asia will see the moon pass into Earth's shadow at 10:44 p.m. local time and can expect the eclipse to peak at around midnight.

It was also a supermoon - meaning the Earth's natural satellite appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reached its closest point to our planet.

"If liquid water and a significant atmosphere were present on the early Moon for long periods of time, we think the lunar surface would have been at least transiently habitable", said study co-author Dirk Schulze-Makuch from the Washington State University in the US. When the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly, Earth's shadow will be cast on the moon. "[This will be] the longest [lunar eclipse] in this century", he said.

The biblical basis for blood moon prophecies is often traced to, a Bible verse that predicts, "The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes".

The totality of this lunar eclipse will last about an hour and 43 minutes, but a partial eclipse before and after the total phase means the moon will spend almost four hours crossing the Earth's shadow.

Before this, Mars and Earth were seen closest in 2003.

"It really was more of a public relations or public affairs kind of thing than it was anything else because you know the moon's color in eclipses can range anywhere from a tan or coppery color actually", Pitts said.

This full moon in July is also known as the Full Buck Moon and the Thunder Moon, occurring when a male deer's antlers are in full growth and at a time of frequent thunderstorms, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

Prof O'Brien explained that people in the United Kingdom would "need to have a clear south-eastern horizon as the Moon comes up" in order to see it.

The entire eclipse will be visible from Africa, the Middle East and countries in central Asia.

At its closest approach, Mars will be 54.6 million km from Earth.

"Less dark eclipses may show the moon as dark grey or brown.as rust-coloured, brick-red, or, if very bright, copper-red or orange". "If you were on the Moon, you would see a total solar eclipse as the Earth would be blocking the Sun".

Scientists say there are three types of lunar eclipses: total, partial and penumbral.

"Hence the Moon is fractionally smaller than usual".
