WHAT IS PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE?
The partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the full Moon, but they are not quite perfectly aligned. Earth’s shadow appears to take a bite out of the moon.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which predicts several space events, has said that Earth will be experiencing a total of 228 lunar eclipses in the 21st century. According to NASA, lunar eclipses can occur a maximum of three times a year.
LUNAR ECLIPSE: DATE AND TIME
According to astrology, the lunar eclipse on November 19, 2021, will take place at around 11:30 AM Indian time. The lunar eclipse will end at 05:33 PM.
LONGEST ECLIPSE BETWEEN 2001 AND 2100
The US Space and Research Center has also announced that the partial lunar eclipse will last around 3 hours and 28 minutes and 23 seconds, which is the longest eclipse seen in the past 100 years between 2001 and 2100.
THOSE IN ARUNACHAL PRADESH AND ASSAM CAN SEE, BUT…
Most of India, though, would not be able to see it. If the weather permits, residents of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam will be able to watch the concluding stages of this event. On Friday, November 19, the lunar eclipse will begin at 11:34 am, and end at 05:33 pm. The conclusion of the partial phase would be seen from the states of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam shortly after the moonrise.
The moon darkens and occasionally becomes crimson during a lunar eclipse. Though, the Earth’s shadow does not entirely cover the moon during a partial eclipse, partial eclipses are nevertheless spectacular sights.
“Partial lunar eclipses may not be as spectacular as total lunar eclipses – where the moon is entirely shrouded in Earth’s shadow – but they are more frequent,” NASA stated in a report.
