At what time will Pakistan be able to see the lunar eclipse?. This afternoon (Saturday), the skies of different parts of the world including Pakistan will be treated to a lunar eclipse that will dazzle people’s eyes as it sweeps across the sky.

For those who love gazing up at the stars, this is their last chance to catch a glimpse of the grand celestial event of the year.

A report published by Earth Sky shows that the lunar eclipse today will be a partial penumbral eclipse, and it will occur just two weeks after the last solar eclipse of 2023 which happened on October 14 – the second and last solar eclipse of 2023.

It was earlier this year, around the beginning of May, that the phenomenon came to light.

In addition to Europe, Asia and Australia, the eclipse will also be visible in parts of North America, the North/East and South American continents, the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Arctic Ocean.

There has been an announcement from the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) stating that there will also be a lunar eclipse in Pakistan on October 28.

On October 29 (Sunday), the report stated that the eclipse would begin at 11:02pm (local time), peak at 01:14am, and end at 03:26am as a result of the extreme weather conditions.

Lunar eclipses are one of the most common types of natural phenomena.

An eclipse of the moon occurs when the moon is blocked by the Earth, which casts a shadow across the moon’s surface due to its position between the sun and the moon. They are only visible when there is a full moon, which makes them an interesting sky watching target when there is one.

Lunar eclipses can be classified into several types

Taking into account how the Sun, the Earth, and the moon are aligned at the time of the eclipse, it is important to note that there are three types of lunar eclipses.

There is a total lunar eclipse when the shadow of the Earth covers the entire surface of the moon.

There are partial lunar eclipses, where only part of the moon moves into Earth’s shadow, appearing as though the Earth is “biting” the surface of the moon

Moon eclipse with penumbral shadow – The faint shadow of Earth casts a shadow across the surface of the moon that appears as a penumbral.
