Sunsets are lovely and so are blood moons but they are less frequent so make a date with the Total Lunar Eclipse aka Blood moon on September 28th, 2015. A Total Lunar Eclipse happens when the Sun, Earth and Moon form a straight line making the moon appear to have a deep red glow hence the name Blood Moon!
“The National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) on Wednesday said Abuja, Lagos and several other cities and towns across the country, would experience a lunar eclipse on September 28th. The lunar eclipse would begin on Monday 28, 1:11a.m, local time and will be at its maximum by 3:47 a.m. local time, with its final contact by 6:22a.m.” More on ThisDay
