  • When a blood moon combined with a lunar eclipse in September 2015 it drew crowds to Glastonbury Tor in Somerset

Lunar fans across the United Kingdom will be able to catch a glimpse of the spectacular event during which the moon's surface is stained red.

A lunar eclipse takes place when the moon passes directly behind the earth, which then casts a shadow on its satellite, which normally reflects the light of the sun back to earth (the moon produces no light of its own).

It is set last one hour and 43 minutes, which would make it the longest of the 21st century.

The observatory, which will be specially open from 22.00 to 01.00 on the night, said the last occasion for viewing such a total eclipse was three years ago.

Lunar eclipse on 27 July will be visible in Belgium

The Royal Astronomical Society said: 'Sometimes the eclipsed moon is a deep red colour, nearly disappearing from view, and sometimes it can be quite bright.

A total lunar eclipse will be visible over most of Europe, Asia, Australia and South America on 27 July.

'The colour is due to Rayleigh scattering - where the sun's blue light is scattered off molecules in the earth's atmosphere - which also happens at sunsets. This glorious sight occurs because of the way sunlight bends (refracts) through the Earth's atmosphere. This means that Earth's shadow will already be crossing the lunar surface when the moon climbs above the south-eastern horizon about 8:50pm.
