2020’s Last Lunar Eclipse Today: All You Need To Know

New Delhi: Today is the last lunar eclipse of the year. Interestingly, all four lunar eclipses this year were penumbral. The previous three occurred on January 10, June 5, July 5. The next lunar eclipse will occur on May 26, 2021.

The Chandra Grahan on Monday will take place around 1 pm and will end at around 5:30 pm during which India receives ample sunlight and therefore, it will not be possible to see the lunar eclipse with the naked eye. However, in some parts of Ranchi, Kolkata, and Patna where the sun sets a little earlier than the rest of the country, a glimpse of the lunar eclipse could be visible.

The Beaver Moon or the Oak Moon though will be clearly visible from most parts of Europe, South America, and the Arctic. The earth would be covering 82 per cent of the moon at its peak during the eclipse which will happen around 3:15 pm.

Time and date:

The ecllipse will be visible on November 30 2020. The total duration of the eclipse is 4 hours, 21 minutes.
