The Annular eclipse can only be seen from Northern Canada, Greenland, and parts of northern Russia.
Explaining the reason behind calling it a blood moon, renowned astrophysicist Debiprasad Duari said as the totally eclipsed moon takes a dark blackish red colour (it) is called a blood moon.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when the earth comes between the sun and the moon.
The eclipse will be visible in parts of Europe, Africa, South America, and Australia.
It is a super blood Moon - 'super' because the Moon will be closest to Earth in its orbit during the full Moon and 'blood' because the total lunar eclipse will turn the Moon a reddish hue.
Mars hovered near the moon in the night sky, easily visible to the naked eye.
The eclipse will also coincide with the closest approach of Mars to Earth. The Nehru Planetarium in New Delhi will organise a 'Moon Carnival' on Friday.
