Chandra Grahan | Lunar Eclipse 2020 Today

English NewsChandra Grahan | Lunar Eclipse 2020 Today

Lunar Eclipse or Chandra Grahan 2020 Today in India Live Updates: The first lunar eclipse of the year 2020 was a penumbral one, which occurred in the month of January itself. The second lunar eclipse of the year is also a penumbral eclipse that is scheduled to happen tonight starting at 11:15 pm. The lunar eclipse will start on June 5 but stretch out to June 6, 2020.

It will reach the maximum eclipse at 12:54 am (on June 6) when the faint shadow of the Earth completely engulfs the Moon. The eclipse will end at 2:34 am on June 6, 2020, when the Moon comes out of the shadow. A penumbral eclipse is a bit hard to distinguish from a normal Full Moon.

It happens when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are imperfectly aligned and the Earth casts a faint shadow over the Moon. The outer part of Earth’s shadow, also known as the penumbra, blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon. A penumbral eclipse is hard to distinguish from the normal Full Moon as the penumbra is much fainter than the dark core of the Earth’s shadow.
