If you have come to Bonaire before, you probably know that we normally enjoy clear skies, which will provide a great opportunity to view this infrequent lunar event. It also provides a unique opportunity for those who enjoy photography to capture something unusual. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the entire moon passes through the Earth’s umbral shadow. During the total phase (totality), the moon turns a vibrant red color. These are easy to see as well, with the unaided eye and shows just why these special moons are called Blood Moons.
