Lunar eclipse 2018: Timings to watch the first phase in India
The first part of the lunar eclipse will see the Moon fall under the Earth’s shadow. This part of the eclipse is known as the penumbral eclipse, as the Moon is under partial influence of the shadow cast by the Earth (called Umbra). Scientists predict that this event could begin from 11.44 pm IST on July 27.
As this happens, some part of the Moon will not be visible to stargazers, resulting in a partial lunar eclipse. The first phase of this partial lunar eclipse is expected to set in from 11.54 pm. This eclipse is represented as phase one of the partial eclipse, since a second partial eclipse will be witnessed after the total lunar eclipse ends.
