Kanpur.Kanpur. Chandra Grahan 2020 Date Timings in India: The first lunar eclipse of the new year starts on January 10. There are three types of lunar eclipse, partial lunar eclipse, full lunar eclipse and fragmentary or sub-shadow lunar eclipse. This happens because the Sun, the Earth and the Moon do not form a perfectly straight line.
Because the United States is on the daylight side of the Earth when the penumbral lunar eclipse happens, US viewers will not be able to see the eclipse. The Earth's shadow falls on the moon, creating a reddish hue, or what some call a "blood moon".
NASA has chose to call the very first eclipse of 2020 the 'Wolf Moon Eclipse.' The eclipse will be visible in India and many others in Asia, the eclipse will last for four hours and five minutes. But this time it is not a lunar eclipse, it is just a shadow lunar eclipse.
People that are unable to see the eclipse can watch it on AccuWeather.com where Slooh's live broadcast of the eclipse will air.
Victoria - Wodonga, Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne, Mildura, and Shepparton starting at 4:07 am, with the maximum penumbral eclipse varying from 6:03 am to 6:10 am. Therefore, during this particular eclipse you will see no dark shadow as in total or partial lunar eclipses, but only a reduction of the brightness of the Moon, Prof. The eclipse will start on Friday, 10 Jan from 10:37 p.m to 2:42 a.m on Saturday, 11 January.
During a total eclipse of the Moon, Earth's only natural satellite completely dips into the darkest shadow cast by our planet - the umbra.
And previous year, a attractive Blood Moon eclipse was visible over swathes of the planet, including India, on January 21, 2019.
The eclipsing will then end around 2.42am IST when the Moon exits the penumbra.
