The last lunar eclipse of 2020 or Chandra Grahan will take place on November 30th. This is the fourth lunar eclipse, with the moon’s shadow darkening for several hours. The fourth lunar eclipse in 2020 coincided with the blessed day of Kartik Pornima. A lunar eclipse is a celestial event that occurs between the Earth and the Sun. Earth’s shadow prevents or prevents sunlight from reaching the moon during a celestial event.
There are three types of lunar eclipses – total lunar eclipses, partial lunar eclipses, and partial lunar eclipses. A recent eclipse is a lunar eclipse that occurs when the Earth is partially blocked by direct sunlight and reaches directly to the Moon.
The outer shadow of the earth is called the pen, and it is cast on the moon.
According to time and date, the last lunar eclipse of 2020 will occur in North and South America, Australia and parts of Asia.
Skywatchers can see about 82% of the moon’s shadow darkening at the highest point of the moon.
For Indian Skywatchers
The total eclipse on November 30 is 4 hours and 21 minutes. Since the moon is on the horizon for a while, only part of the solar eclipse occurs in India.
The lunar eclipse or Chandra Grahan is expected to start around 1.02 in 2020 and reach a peak at 3.12 in the afternoon. The celestial event ends at 5.23pm IST.
