It was only in January 2018 that we experienced a super blue blood moon, and we’re pretty lucky to have another blood moon, or a total lunar eclipse, on July 28 (albeit a regular one). It’s set to occur between 1:14 a.m. and 5:44 a.m., and if you’re a hardcore astronomy lover or a photographer looking to get the best shot of this rare occasion, the Philippine Astronomical Society, Inc. has a list of observation stations where you can view the event with ample space and tools for free:
