From start to finish, the eclipse will clock in at three hours and 17 minutes and totality will last one hour and two minutes.

A blood moon lunar eclipse is when the moon passes through the earth’s shadow, the light from the sun gets filtered through the earth’s atmosphere leaving a shade of red projected into the moon.

The early hours of Monday are forecast to be a mix of cloud and clear spells on Merseyside, so it may be a case of catching a glimpse before it disappears.
