A significant celestial event will be visible in Kilkenny tomorrow night as the moon is totally eclipsed by the Earth for 103 minutes, turning it a deep shade of red.
At 8.24pm, the moon will start moving into the umbral shadow of the earth. For those unaware, the eclipse will begin at 11:30pm IST on July 27 2018. Won't the sky be too bright for us to see all of this?
But the eclipse that will stretch from South America to New Zealand on Friday will last nearly four hours, coming in at three hours and 55 minutes.
"It starts with a partial eclipse at 7:24 p.m".
Unfortunately, the live stream is the only way those of us in North America will get to witness the blood red moon.
While you might imagine that this phenomenon leads to a dark sky, the way the sunlight travels through Earth's atmosphere means that it actually casts the moon in a reddish orange hue-hence the nickname "blood moon".
What is a blood moon?
This specific blood moon is rare because it is lasting a very long length of time, thanks to the moon passing through the centre of the Earth's shadow.
While the whole of Asia, including India, and Eastern Africa will be able to watch the entire "blood moon" eclipse, the rare phenomenon will be visible in parts of South-America, Europe, and Australia.
Andrew Fabian, professor of astronomy at Cambridge University, explained that light from the sun goes through the earth's atmosphere on its way to the moon.
The period of complete eclipse - known as "totality", when the moon appears darkest - will last from 1930 to 2113 GMT.
While this morning's lunar eclipse was long, they can be longer - up to one hour and 47 minutes.
But, while there was a spectacular sunrise, the eclipsed moon disappeared behind low cloud at the crucial moment in Christchurch. There are several channels which are organising live streaming of the lunar eclipse.
Sydneysiders were not disappointed with the eclipse has thousands woke early across the city to take in the spectacle.
Rio de Janeiro's spectators cheered when the blood moon emerged from the fog.
At this time, "red planet" appeared like an orange-red star.
In the United Kingdom, rain clouds permitting, the Moon will appear entirely red - fully eclipsed by Earth - from when it rises at 21:00 to 22:15 BST.
