  • A partial lunar eclipse

The full moon will emerge from the shadow area at 1918 GMT, and then the partial eclipse will end, said the report.

Pakistan will experience this year's second lunar eclipse between August 7 and 8, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) claims. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon align in an nearly straight line. During a lunar eclipse, the Moon passes first through the penumbra, taking about an hour, moving eastward by its own diameter in this time, to reach the western edge of the umbra.

So, what is a lunar eclipse?

It's unclear how Warren, whose family in Britain reported him missing three days ahead of the slaying, knew the victim. They have been accused of fatally stabbing Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, 26, in Lathem's apartment in Chicago on July 27.


The eclipse will only cover a small part of the Moon's southern hemisphere and will last for about an hour until 1918 GMT (23:48:10 local time). It will, however, be a total lunar eclipse. Since the moon is above the horizon during this eclipse, so with good weather conditions the entire eclipse should be visible with naked eye. As long as skies aren't too cloudy, skygazers stand a good chance of being able to witness this eclipse as it happens, though it won't be visible in the United States, which is now gearing up for the Great American Eclipse on August 21.

The eclipse is expected to start at 8:50pm August 7 (Monday) and end at 1.51am August 8 (Tuesday) PST.

The moon could often take on a dark red hue during a total lunar eclipse.
