This Super Blood Moon will be visible everywhere but over North America

Stargazers will be scouring the skies later this week as a lunar phenomenon will be visible in the night sky.

A total lunar eclipse will take place on July 27, when the earth will pass between the sun and the moon.

This casts a shadow on the moon, triggering a total eclipse.

Given the moon is currently the furthest away in its orbit, it will take longer to pass through the shadow causing the eclipse to be the longest in 100 years.
