Lunar Eclipse 2022: India Timings And Other Details You Need To Know

Lunar eclipse: The moon will appear larger than usual and will be considered a super moon.

Stargazers are witnessing the first lunar eclipse of 2022. While most of Europe is witnessing it before dawn on Monday, the Americas were able to see it Sunday night.

The Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon during the eclipse, and it will be a Super Blood Moon. The Moon will gradually darken before turning dusky red as it falls completely into the Earth's shadow.

As the Moon will be at its closest point to Earth in its orbit, it will appear larger than usual and will be considered a super moon.

The eclipse will last more than five hours. In Indian Standard Time (IST), it will begin at 7.02 a.m. on Monday (9:32 p.m. Easter Time on Sunday), and end at 12.20 p.m. (2:50 a.m. ET on Monday).

In India, the eclipse began at 7.57 a.m. on Monday (10.27 p.m. ET on Sunday). Although the eclipse will not be visible in India, those interested can watch a livestream of the event on NASA. The livestream began at 8.33 a.m. IST on Monday.
