SAVE THE DATE: Partial lunar eclipse to be visible in PH

The penumbral part of the lunar eclipse, which is hard to discern, will start at 9:20 pm on Monday night, while the partial phase will start at 10:52 pm.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has said that the second lunar eclipse of this year will be visible in Pakistan. The duration of the partial eclipse is 1 hour, 55 minutes. A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon, but they are not precisely aligned.

"The lunar surface is not completely shadowed by the earth's umbra (darkest part of a shadow)".

This week's partial eclipse is a prelude to the total solar eclipse, which will be visible in North America two weeks later (August 21). The main difference from one event to another is the degree to which the totally eclipsed Moon is darkened and how colourful it might be. The Penumbral eclipse will begin at 9.22PM on August 7 and end at 2.20AM on August 8. It is hard to see the start and end of penumbral lunar eclipse by naked eye and one must use Astronomical telescopes or highly sensitive digital cameras.

Observers in Africa, Asia and Australia will see the Partial eclipse in its entirety.
