Lunar eclipse to be visible in Pakistan on Monday

Lunar eclipse to be visible in Pakistan on Monday

Residents of Asian countries including Pakistan, Europe, Antarctica, Africa, and Australia will be able to see the eclipse. Even if you're not in the path of the partial lunar eclipse, Monday will bring a summer full moon to the night sky. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.

The duration of the total eclipse will be five hours and one minute, while the duration of partial phase of lunar eclipse will be one hour and fifty five minutes.

PAGASA explained that a penumbral eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the faint penumbral portion of the earth's shadow. As the Sun is an extended light source, Earth's shadow has two components - a dark, central UMBRA, where the Sun is completely obscured, and a lighter outer PENUMBRA, within which the obscuration is partial.

The state weather bureau said lunar eclipses are safe to watch and observers don't need to use protective filters for the eyes.

The Nehru Planetarium will be setting up telescopes to help visitors observe the Moon before the eclipse and the partial phases of the eclipse, at the Teen Murti lawns from 9:00 pm on Monday night.

The complete details of Partial Eclipse of the Moon from Mysuru are given below in Indian Standard Time: Partial Lunar Eclipse on August 7.

The space circuit in India is buzzing with excitement and anticipation ever since word about the lunar eclipse spread.
