  • A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the earth moves between the sun and moon but the three celestial bodies do not form a perfectly straight line in space

The most effective, wonderful and evident astronomical event in the sky is an 'Eclipse.' Mysureans are highly privileged to witness a partial lunar eclipse on Aug.7. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the umbral region of the Earth's shadow and becomes imperceptible.

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 best conditions for observing the eclipse will be in eastern Latvia where the sun will be setting a bit sooner. One such partial eclipse will take place on August 7-8, the release from Durairaj Gnanamuthu, district science officer, said.

The lunar eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and peaks 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 GMT). 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. During the eclipse, the earth will block out a portion of the sun's light from the hitting the moon, making our only natural satellite appear as though its bottom half has been dipped in darkness.
