Two significant events will take place simultaneously as Mars reaches its closest point to Earth while the Moon will be totally eclipsed, causing the whole moon to turn red.
The expected lunar eclipse can be seen in North America and on the YouTube channel below from 07:00am UK time.
The live image stream will be hosted by Slooh Observatory Director Paul Cox and Slooh astronomer Bob Berman, who will be reporting live from Prescott Observatory in Prescott, Arizona.
