The Moon will turn red in the early hours of Monday morning during a brief total Lunar eclipse between 06:34 am to 09:51 am Eastern Africa Time, according to the Kenya Met Department.

The January 2019 Lunar eclipse will also be visible in North America, South America, Western Europe and Northwestern Africa

A partial eclipse will be visible in parts of Africa and Europe.

In Britain, the Moon began to darken at 2.35am with full eclipse beginning at 4.40am.

It is the last chance for UK observers to see a total lunar eclipse in its entirety until 2029.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes exactly between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow which stops solar rays reaching the lunar surface.
