Penumbral Lunar Eclipse: Pakistan is witnessing the second eclipse of 2020

Pakistan is witnessing a penumbral lunar eclipse tonight, it is the second lunar eclipse of 2020.

Lunar eclipse began in Pakistan at 10:46 pm according to Pakistan standard time (PST) and it will be ended at 2:04 am on Saturday

This eclipse is a penumbral lunar eclipse – where there is a flawed alignment between the sun, moon and the Earth.

As a result, some of the sun’s light is stopped from reaching the moon.

This is the second lunar eclipse of 2020 and it is visible in different parts of the world including most of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the East coast of South America.

In Pakistan, the eclipse will start at 10:46 pm and end at 2:04 am on Saturday.

Penumbral lunar eclipses are difficult to see by eye because only a portion of the sun’s light is blocked from reaching the moon.
