First Eclipse Of 2017 Today, Can Be Seen From India

INDORE, (PTI): The first eclipse of this year will take place early morning tomorrow and would be visible from India.

“The first ‘penumbral lunar eclipse’ would begin at 4:02:02 AM and would continue till 8:25:05 AM on February 11. This eclipse will be visible in India,” said Rajendra Prakash Gupt, superintendent of the government-run Jiwaji Observatory here.

The intensity of moon’s brightness would lessen and it would become hazy during the eclipse, he said.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon align almost in a straight line. The Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface, and partially covers the Moon with the outer part of its shadow, also known as the penumbra, Gupt said.
