It will last 1 hour and 41 minutes will plunge the full Moon into deep darkness, as it passes right through the centre of the Earth's umbral shadow. While the visual effect of a total eclipse is variable, the Moon may be stained a deep orange or red colour at maximum eclipse. This will be a great spectacle for everyone who sees it. The partial eclipse will last for 3 hours and 39 minutes in total.
It will be completely visible over most of the Pacific Ocean, seen rising over Australia and Eastern Asia, and setting over North and South America.
