(SPOT.ph) In case you missed it, the "blood moon" will be visible from the Philippines in the early morning hours of Saturday, July 28. Also known as a total lunar eclipse, the astronomic phenomenon is what occurs when the Earth comes between the Sun and a full moon, which gives the moon a reddish tinge. The total lunar eclipse will be seen from 1:13 a.m. to 5:13 a.m., for a total of four hours—making this the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century.
