When and how to see the ‘blood moon’ in Nigeria tomorrow
Tomorrow, Friday July 27, 2018, is Lunar eclipse day.
The much talked about total lunar eclipse or rather ‘blood moon’ will be visible from anywhere around Nigeria and the phenomenon isn’t something you should miss. People in Nigeria can see the Lunar Eclipse between 6:40pm and 9:21pm Nigerian time, tomorrow.
A total lunar eclipse is thought to be one of greatest astronomical spectacles of the planet, and we can all see this in our life time.
Olorisupergal reported that the Lunar Eclipse, or blood moon, to happen this Friday will be the longest in over a century.
So, What Is A Lunar Eclipse?
A Lunar eclipse is an arrangement whereby the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are aligned in a straight line in this particular order: Sun – Earth – Moon. While the Sun is illuminating the Earth, the moon is exactly behind the Earth, and cast in its shadow. The result is that the Earth stops direct sunlight reaching the moon which leaves magical deep red blood moon.
