According to Ale, the lunar eclipse would begin on Monday, September 28 from 1.11 am, and will be at its maximum by 3.47 am, with its final contact at 6.22 am.

The statement reads: “Some of the regions seeing at least some parts of the eclipse include, Europe, South/East Asia, Africa, much of North America, much of South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic, and Antarctica.

Furthermore, the lunar eclipse will be visible in Abuja, and would begin from 1:11am, with total eclipse at 3:47am, and end by 6:22am.”

The lunar eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when the earth comes in-between the sun and the moon, and the earth casts its shadow on the moon, so that the moon appears reddish.

In some regions around the world where the lunar eclipse will be observed, it is called the blood moon.
