(RNN) – Something heavenly is happening this week.
Friday will bring the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century.
The Earth’s shadow will cover the moon for 1 hour and 43 minutes, according to NASA.
This type of eclipse is known as a “blood moon,” which means the moon will appear to be a reddish color as some of the sun’s ray bend around the Earth.
Unfortunately, the celestial show won’t be visible in North America. But if you live in South America, eastern Africa, the Middle East and central Asia, you’re in luck.
If you want to see what the eclipse will look like in your area, you can plug your location into NASA’s Lunar Eclipse Explorer.
The eclipse will be visible across much of the world, but not in North America.
