The blood moon is upon us, and right now we're going to discuss how and when not to view it best.

Whether Hagee, Begley and others' predictions come true or not, the eclipse will be visible over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas on Friday, July 27, for approximately 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Unfortunately this historic event will not be witnessed in its entirety by us North Americans, who have the worst seats on the planet - literally! It will be a total eclipse.

According to the reports in ANI, the moon will be in flawless alignment with the sun and the earth, with the moon in the middle of the earth and the sun.
