The best photos of the weekend's lunar eclipse and blood moon

By 9.30 pm on Friday the roads had emptied out as many Bengalureans worried about the inauspicious eclipse had stayed indoors. But there were many others who were up on their roofs to watch the Blood Moon between 11.30 pm on Friday and 3.30 am on Satur

It is reported that the "blood moon", people will be able to see until next year.

The UAE Space Agency is sponsoring a series of observation points at a number of astronomy centres throughout the UAE, to provide residents with the opportunity to witness the longest total lunar eclipse of the century on Friday, July 27.

Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium director Pramod Galgali has also said that the decision to make arrangements for viewing the moon is subject to clear skies.

The eclipse will start at 11.54pm, while the total eclipse will begin at 1.02am on Saturday.

The so-called blood moon was visible at different times in most parts of the world when the sun, earth and moon lined up perfectly, casting earth's shadow on the moon.

Many, especially Hindus, completed their dinner early by 8 pm on Friday and ate nothing till the eclipse came to an end.

Facebook Might've Just Had The Worst Day In Stock Market History
After a surprisingly weak growth forecast in this week's earnings report, Facebook's stock price dropped 19 percent. Ever since the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, Facebook had been the prime target for criticism.

This is the first Central lunar Eclipse since 2011.

The eclipse will then reach its peak at 12:22 on Saturday morning ending at 01:12.

The National Institute for Astronomical Research announced Wednesday that millions in Egypt and the Arab world will witness a long lunar eclipse next Friday.

The planetarium had organised a "Moon Carnival" and set up special telescopes for people to experience the phenomenon.
