Partial lunar eclipse to occur over the Arab world on Monday

Lunar eclipse on August 7

Summary: Gurgaon: A partial lunar eclipse will be observable from across India on August 7 and 8.

The astronomical phenomenon will be visible if the skies are not covered by clouds.

PAGASA explained that a penumbral eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the faint penumbral portion of the earth's shadow. This results in Earth's shadow looking like it's about to "take a bite" out of the moon, instead of covering it completely. It will, however, be a total lunar eclipse. The best conditions for observing the eclipse will be in eastern Latvia where the sun will be setting a bit sooner.

Lunar and Solar eclipses happen in pairs, with the lunar eclipse happening within two weeks of a solar eclipse.

Among them was Rodman Serrano, 23, a child of immigrants from El Salvador and Brentwood High School graduate, who said that Mr. Trump was spreading an exaggerated narrative that assumed all Latinos are being gang members.

"The partial eclipse begins at 3:50pm and ends at 8:21pm GMT (11:21pm local time)", IAC officials said.

While there was a little disappointment among space enthusiasts due to India not being able to witness the August 21 total solar eclipse - which will only be visible in the United States - the news of the lunar eclipse sure made things better.

The main difference from one event to another is the degree to which the totally eclipsed Moon is darkened and how colourful it might be.

The eclipse can be seen from all over the Arab region.
