According to the Institute of Space and Planetary Astrophysics (ISPA), the first lunar eclipse of 2020 will occur during the night of 10-11 January.
The lunar eclipse, also called Wolf Moon Eclipse, is a celestial event when the earth enters the sun and the moon, which prevents some or all of the sun’s light from reaching the lunar moon. According to details.
In Pakistan and various other countries, the eclipse (Penumbral Lunar Eclipse) is visible.
The lunar eclipse is scheduled for approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
The ISPA official said that, between 10 and 11 January, the weather would be partly cloudy. Private news channels reported.
During the eclipse, only the outer part of the shadow appears to cover 90% of the moon’s surface partially.
The lunar eclipse will be visible both in Pakistan and in various cities in Asia, Europe, Australia, and Africa. It is a penumbral lunar eclipse, and in these eclipses, the moon does not become entirely dark or red.
It will not be visible in the United States, central Canada, and a majority of South America.
In all, four lunar eclipses of this kind are expected to take place by 2020, with the first occurring on 10 January 2020. Put, a lunar eclipse occurs on the full moon when the earth’s satellite passes through the shadow of the planet.
In a total lunar eclipse, however, the whole moon is in the shadow of the Earth or dark shadow, and this, in turn, causes the moon to appear red.
This is not a partial eclipse when a small section of the Moon is within the umbra of the earth.
This year’s other lunar eclipse will be on 5 June, 5 July, and 30 November.
