Lunar Eclipse 2017: What time you can watch it in India

Lunar eclipse on August 7-8 in India it will be Penumbral and Partial

Observers in Africa, Asia and Australia will see the partial eclipse in its entirety.

"The maximum eclipse can be seen at 11.51 p.m.", said Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE) - New Delhi-based astronomy organisation - in a statement.

We will, however, be able to see a total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, which is often known as a blood moon as the moon turns red.

It is a narrow path for the Moon to pass within the penumbra and outside the umbra.

The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha also reiterates the importance of prayers during a lunar eclipse and says that the most effective way to benefit is to cease from all activities and to chant and pray to God for release from the negative effects of "Rahu".

The sun will go dark on August 21 across much of America, but not in Hazleton, where people still might see a partial eclipse.

A partial lunar eclipse will take place tonight and will be visible from across the country. The outer or penumbral shadow is a zone where the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun's rays from reaching the Moon. No special filters are required to protect your eyes like those used for solar eclipses.

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

The next one we are scheduled to witness in the United Kingdom will be on June 10, 2021, although it will just be a partial eclipse.
