A partial lunar eclipse will take place on Monday night and will be visible from across India. "Starting from 10.52pm, the full moon will enter the Earth's shadow in space and create a spectacular celestial phenomenon, which is commonly known as partial lunar eclipse. This will be the first properly visible lunar eclipse this year," Debiprosad Duari, Director Research and Academic, M P Birla Planetarium, said.
"On February 11 this year there was a penumbral eclipse of the moon. It was an event where the moon passed not through the direct shadow of the earth but through its periphery and thus it could not be discernible by most of the population," he said.
"The partial lunar eclipse this time would be visible from the whole of Asia and Australia and most parts of Europe and Africa," Duari said adding, "People in North and South America will be not be able to see it because it will be daytime there."
