    Year’s First Lunar Eclipse On Jan 10. All You Need To Know

    The eclipse will coincide with the full Moon

    After the much-talked-about ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse last month, the world will witness another spectacular celestial event – the penumbral lunar eclipse, also called the ‘Wolf Moon Eclipse’ on January 10th, 2020.

    On the night of January 10th, 2020, 90 per cent of the Moon will be partially shaded by the Earth. This will cause a slight shadow across the Moon’s disc. The penumbral lunar eclipse will last 4 hours and 5 minutes in total.

    In India, you can enjoy the eclipse from 10:37 pm on January 10th, 2020 to 2:42 am on January 11th, 2020. The eclipse will coincide with the full Moon.

    The eclipse will be visible in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, parts of North America, East in South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Arctic.

    The next three penumbral lunar eclipses of the year will take place on June 5th, July 5th and November 30th respectively, as reported.
