Get ready to witness the lunar eclipse on August 7

Raman Planetarium officials said that for Nagpur the penumbral part of the lunar eclipse, which is hard to discern, will start at 9:20.01pm on Monday night, while the partial phase will start at 10:52.56pm. The partial phase will last almost for 1 hour and 55 minutes. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon align in an nearly straight line.

Given all that, Monday night's partial lunar eclipse might not be a grand treat for skygazers on the same level as the Great American Eclipse two weeks from now. It is hard to see the start and end of penumbral lunar eclipse by naked eye and one must use Astronomical telescopes or highly sensitive digital cameras.
