Eclipse to Occur in Nigeria Today Between 6:44pm and 9:21pm

An eclipse of the moon a.k.a ‘blood moon’ has been predicted to occur in Nigeria today between 6:44pm and 9:21pm.
The eclipse would make the atmosphere look darker as against the usual clear white colour of the moon.
A ‘blood moon’ happens when Earth’s moon is in full eclipse and has no special astronomical significance, rather, the view in the sky is striking as the usually whitish moon becomes red or ruddy-brown and can be looked at with the naked eye.
The Eclipse in Nigeria will start around 6:44pm as partial eclipse and developed into a total eclipse around 7:30pm.

The Eclipse is expected to reach its peak around 9:21pm and wane from then until the eclipse ends around 12:30am of the 28th of July 2018.
“The total Eclipse will last for about 1 hour and 43 minutes, making it the longest total Lunar Eclipse of the 21st century.
No other Lunar Eclipse will be as long as this in the century.
A re-occurrence would take place in January 21, 2019; partial lunar eclipse on July 16/17, 2019; transit mercury eclipse on November 21, 2019; and penumbral lunar eclipse January 10, 2020.
