Partial Lunar Eclipse Awes M'sian Haj Pilgrims In Mecca

Partial Lunar Eclipse Awes M'sian Haj Pilgrims In Mecca

The eclipse will be visible from Nepal, India, China, Japan, Australia, Antarctica, Africa, Europe, Russia and some parts of South America.

The penumbral part of the lunar eclipse, which is hard to discern, began at 9:20 pm, while the partial phase would start at 10:52 pm, she said.

Lunar eclipses, which may be total or partial, can occur only at full moon when Sun, Earth and Moon are in line. Lunar eclipse is discernible from a large part of the Earth. Traditionally, some Native American fishing tribes were aware that sturgeon - a large fish that inhabited the Great Lakes as well as Lake Champlain - were most readily caught around the time of the August full moon, hence it became known as the Full Sturgeon Moon.

According to the NASA website, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon casts a shadow onto Earth.

The leaders of the ASEAN countries would be meeting this Sunday in Philippine's capital Manila to discuss a wide variety of issues.

The August 7 lunar eclipse is associated with the upcoming major August 21 solar eclipse. Only part of the Moon comes under the Earth's shadow, and looks darker.

The Nehru Planetarium here had made a decision to set up telescopes to help visitors observe the moon before the eclipse and the partial phases of the eclipse at the Teen Murti lawns.

This year's second lunar eclipse will take place between August 7 and 8, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said. "An interesting aspect of lunar eclipse is that anywhere on earth from where the moon is visible during eclipse, the time will be the same".
