Total Lunar Eclipse Visible in Fez

Early Monday morning a total lunar eclipse will be fully visible in Fez.  The total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon, as the moon turns red. What should make this eclipse spectacular is that the moon is at the nearest point to earth for this year

Phases and local times of this eclipse in Morocco

Start of the partial eclipse will be around 02:07
The maximum eclipse will be around 03:47
The end of the partial eclipse will be at 05:27

The total time of the eclipse is 5 hours and 11 minutes.

Earlier tonight  - and the forecast is for clear skies and good visibility

UPDATE:  Sadly the sky in Fez clouded over and although The View From Fez team were up to watch the eclipse - there was nothing to see.
