The Meteorological Department on Saturday announced that Pakistan will be observing the second and final lunar eclipse of the year tonight.
This celestial spectacle will not only captivate astronomers but also be visible to eager skywatchers in Pakistan.
A lunar eclipse unfolds when the Moon traverses the darkest portion of Earth’s shadow, positioning itself between our planet, the Sun, and the Moon.
This unique alignment creates a striking astronomical event, and tonight, Pakistan is in for a treat.
While a penumbral lunar eclipse graced the night sky on May 5, 2023, this lunar eclipse promises a more dramatic and visually captivating experience.
The eclipse is set to commence at 11:01 PM Pakistan Standard Time tonight.
As the night unfolds, the lunar eclipse will gradually intensify, reaching its peak at 01:15 in the night.
The lunar eclipse will cast its enchanting shadow until October 29, concluding at 03:26 PM.
This lunar eclipse will not be confined to Pakistan alone; it will grace the night skies in various countries across Asia, Russia, Europe, and Africa, uniting people across the globe in awe of the wonders of our universe.
