Lunar Eclipse will Occur Tonight

A minor lunar eclipse will be visible today, October 18. This lunar eclipse will be visible to watch in North and South Amercia, Africa, Europe and most of Asia. The eastern half of North America will clearly watch this penumbral lunar eclipse at 7:50 p.m. EDT or 2350 GMT when the eclipse is on its peak. Almost 76.5 percent of t moon will be covered with the penumbra of the lunar eclipse at that time.

"For nearly four hours on Friday, at least some part of the southern portion of the moon will be within Earth's pale penumbra, our planet's faint outer shadow. Penumbral lunar eclipses are rather subtle events that are usually difficult to detect unless at least 70 percent of the moon’s diameter shaded," according to Space.com .

However, this penumbral lunar eclipse will be slightly visible for the west, Mountain and Pacific time zone people during the late afternoon hours or before the moon rises.

But is most parts of Asia including Indian subcontinent and the western half of China, this minor lunar eclipse can be seen briefly on Saturday morning i.e October 19th. Europe, western Asia, Africa and the rest of eastern South America will watch a very light portion of the eclipse. But the moon will rise in the sky of Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso in Africa at mid-eclipse.
