Tonight, the moon enters Earth's shadow and turns red, forming what is called a "blood moon."
This is the first total lunar eclipse in three years.
The event coincides with the biggest and brightest full moon of the year,or "supermoon", giving it the title of "super blood moon".
This unusual cosmic show is likely to last for 18 minutes, starting at 8:09 PM,and reaching at its peak at 8:18 when the moon will be completely red.
Despite the weather, the moon should be visible through cloud cover in inland regions.
It will also be live streamed on YouTube channels run by the national and regional science museums.
