Partial Lunar Eclipse 2019: Lunar Eclipse Marks Moon Landing's 50th Anniversary

Don't miss it, because the next penumbral lunar eclipse will only roll by again on 10 January 2020.

The path of the Moon through the Earth's shadow on the night of July 16th, 2019.

In India, the Partial Eclipse will begin at 1:31 a.m and the maximum eclipse will occur at 3 a.m.

What is partial lunar eclipse (ardh chandra grahan)? According to the almanac, the Thunder Moon is also known as the Buck Moon as during this time of year, new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads, marking an important time of growth.

When that happens, a fraction of the moon's surface is covered by the darkest central part of the earth's shadow, called the umbra. When the Moon completely passes through the umbra or when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are perfectly aligned, a total lunar eclipse occurs. You should avoid obstructions such as trees or houses, as the moon will hang relatively low in the sky during a large part of the lunar eclipse.

Depending where you are, the eclipse will arrive at a different time in the world and will look more or less clear.

Unlike a solar eclipse, it's entirely safe to watch a lunar eclipse with the naked eye.

When will I be able to see the full moon?

The event will be visible from parts of northern Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia.

If you want to photograph the next lunar eclipse, veteran astro-photographers Imelda Joson and Edwin Aguirre teamed up with Space.com and created this handy guide. Starting at 1843 GMT, which is around 12.15 am on July 17 in India, the eclipse will end at 0017 GMT or around 5.30 am in the morning.

Why is July such an important month in moon history? A total eclipse on that date will be visible in parts of Siberia, the Arctic, Greenland and Canada.

The first men to land on the moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, planted the American flag on the moon's surface on July 20, 1969, making the July moon one of historical significance.

Where will the lunar eclipse be visible?

Then, on the morning of November 19, 2021, North Americans will be treated to an eclipse covering 98% of the moon's diameter.

Don't miss Tuesday night's partial lunar eclipse, either in person or online.
