The Guardian had reported that Nigeria and most other parts of the world would on July 27, 2018 experience blood moon- a spectacular total lunar eclipse.
By the time the blood moon is rising on Friday evening in the United Kingdom, it will have begun to pass out of Earth's shadow - although it will still remain quite red.
"Less dark eclipses may show the moon as dark grey or brown.as rust-coloured, brick-red, or, if very bright, copper-red or orange".
Despite being bigger and brighter than usual, Mars will also appear fuzzier because of seasonal dust storms that are kicked up as the planet warms when it comes closer to the sun.
Although the actual point of opposition will take place on July 27, Mars will be noticeably larger for the majority of the month of July. FYI No eye protection is needed for viewing.
It's going to be a rare celestial event.
Longest Lunar Eclipse July 27, 2018
Stargazers will be able to witness the best view of the eclipse in a region spreading across all of sub-Saharan and east Africa, the Middle East, central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and central Russian Federation. The next total lunar eclipse will happen on January 21, 2019, and it will last for one hour and two minutes, as per NASA's data.
The next lunar eclipse visible in Brunei will take place on July 17 next year, but it will be a partial one.
Why is it called Blood Moon? This is the first time in 152 years, a supermoon, a blue moon and a blood moon coincided.
This phenomenon could be explained by the elliptical or oval-shaped orbits that Earth and Mars followed around the Sun.
No glasses are needed for the lunar eclipse due to its dimmer colour.
And do not forget to try and catch the event as soon as you can because the moon will only be in a state of total eclipse until 11.15 pm when it will start to emerge and regain its normal appearance.
Then the Moon will start to gradually come out of Earth's shadow and partial eclipse will end at 3h 49m IST on July 28.
Prof O'Brien explained that people in the United Kingdom would "need to have a clear south-eastern horizon as the Moon comes up" in order to see it. A "Blood Moon" occurs when the moon lines up with the Earth and sun, with the Earth's atmosphere refracting the light onto the moon causing it to turn red.

But in this moment he's in a really good club for his development. But I like him and it's not like that could be the problem.
