Partial lunar eclipse to be observed tonight
The world will be able to view a partial lunar eclipse tonight (Friday).
The penumbral lunar eclipse in Pakistan will begin around 10:45 pm, peak at 12:24 am, and end at 2:04 am in the early hours of June 6.
According to The Guardian, “The full moon will clip the outer portion of Earth’s shadow, creating a penumbral lunar eclipse. This is much subtler than a total lunar eclipse, in which the moon appears to turn red as it passes through the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, situated right behind our planet.”
Penumbral lunar eclipses are hard to see from the human eye, as only a portion of the light of the sun is blocked from reaching the moon.
Much of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the east coast of South America can see the eclipse.
