Keep in mind the Lunar Eclipse are divided in three types:

  • Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. The Moon passes through Earth's penumbral shadow.
  • Partial Lunar Eclipse. A portion of the Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow.
  • Total Lunar Eclipse. The entire Moon passes through Earth's umbral shadow.

So, the penumbral eclipse, it will begin at 11:44 PM on Friday night i.e. July 27 and then the partial Lunar Eclipse will begin at 11:54 PM. If you want to see the pure blood Moon eclipse then you to wait till 1 AM. Because the total eclipse will start at 1:00 AM i.e. July 28 and will be more crisp at 1:51 AM and will end at 2:43 AM.

The total Lunar Eclipse will last for one hour forty three minutes. You can see the moon from the bare eyes, if, there are no clouds near your place in the sky.

And if you are not lucky enough to see the eclipse because of clouds in the night sky, you can watch it live by just Googling the search as Lunar Eclipse Live streaming, I am sure you will get many options.
