Lunar eclipses can be visible from everywhere on the night side of the Earth, if the sky is clear. From some places the entire eclipse will be visible, while in other areas the Moon will rise or set during the eclipse.

Total lunar eclipses are also sometimes called Blood Moon because of the reddish orange glow the Moon takes on during the eclipse.

On the day of the eclipse, the full moon will be close to the Earth, so it may look a larger in the sky, making it a Blood super moon eclipse.

The Moon is below the horizon during this eclipse, so it is not possible to view it in Accra but other region according to report.
