What is Lunar Eclipse?
The lunar eclipse is also known as Wolf moon and occurs when the earth comes between sun and moon. This results in blocking the sunlight from reaching the Moon.
This Penumbral Lunar Eclipse can be witnessed in Pakistan and other countries like Europe, Africa Australia, and the United States.
However, the weather will be cloudy which will make witnessing this event difficult. During the eclipse, the earth will cover up 90% of the moon’s surface.
There are four Penumbral Lunar Eclipse to be witnessed in 2020 and the first one is occurring in the first month of January. This eclipse does not turn red.
The rest of the three lunar eclipses are likely to be witnessed on June 5, July 5 and November 30 in 2020.
