Next eclipse of the Moon is next week

Sunday 14th July, 2019

The last Lunar Eclipse of 2019 is coming and it will be visible from India by next week on the night of July 16 and 17.

The partial lunar eclipse will be visible from beginning to end from all parts of Pakistan including Europe, Africa, Asia and a few parts of North America.

The partial lunar eclipse will last for nearly three hours, starting at 8 p.m. GMT and ending around 11 p.m. GMT Tuesday night.

Lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth moves between the Sun and Moon but the three celestial bodies do not form a straight line in space.

When that happens, a part of the Moon’s surface is covered by the darkest, central part of the Earth’s shadow.

Two weeks after the Thunder Moon Eclipse, July will conclude with a Black Moon.

A Black Moon is the second new moon in a calendar month. This is similar to a Blue Moon, which usually refers to the second full moon in one month.

However, unlike a Blue Moon, this month’s phenomenon will not be visible as the part of the moon that is illuminated by the sun during a new moon is facing away from the Earth.
