Lunar Eclipse to be visible in Pakistan

By Muhammad Luqman
The second lunar eclipse of the year 2017 will be visible on the night between August 7 and 8, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said.
The eclipse will start at 8:50pm on Monday evening and end at 1:51am on Tuesday, according to Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
The partial eclipse will begin at 10:23pm and end at around 2.00 a.m.
Residents of Asian countries including Pakistan, Europe, Antarctica, Africa, and Australia will be able to see the eclipse.
The first lunar eclipse of the current year was visible on February 11 from 3:34pm till 7:53pm.
A partial lunar eclipse occurs when a portion of the Moon passes through Earth’s umbral shadow. Depending on the size of the eclipse, a dark red or rust colour, or simply a charcoal grey may appear on the shadowed portion of the lunar surface.
