Kenya to join the rest of the world in getting rare lunar eclipse treat

Here are details on the rare space event and what time to view it

The spectacular space event will feature three moon events for the first time in over 150 years. It will be a night of three phenomena: a blood moon, super moon and a blue moon or otherwise known as  the Super Blue Blood Moon.

A super moon is when the full moon is closer to the earth’s orbit, making it appear more visible and brighter.

A blue moon is the name given to the second full moon in the month of January and a blood moon is when the moon passes the earth’s shadow during a lunar eclipse and the sun reflects on it appearing red.

The last time the world witnessed a super blue blood moon was in March 31, 1866.

However, the met department says Kenya will be at the edge of the Lunar eclipse and will thus experience a Penumbral eclipse.

According to a geographical website known as Time and Date people interested in watching the lunar eclipse can do so with naked eye. While people can view the eclipse from everywhere it will be more visible in India, they will have the pleasure of viewing the total full moon coloured in red and in a bigger and brighter form.

Likewise, people from North or East Europe, Asia, Australia, North America, North or West South America will also get a better view of the lunar eclipse.
