A partial lunar eclipse will grace the skies on July 16-17, Wednesday and much of the world will be able to watch this celestial phenomenon. Since this will be the last lunar eclipse of 2019 and will be visible from India, try and not miss it. A partial lunar eclipse (ardh chandra grahan) occurs when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon, but the three celestial bodies do not form a straight line in the space. When this happens, a small part of the Moon's surface is covered by the darkest, central part of the Earth's shadow, called the umbra. During this partial lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow covers only parts of the Moon. The next total lunar eclipse will be visible on May 26, 2021.
