On May 6th, a partial lunar eclipse will occur, where the full moon enters the Earth’s penumbra. Although not a total eclipse, the moon will darken as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, giving observers a chance to witness the event.
The Earth’s shadow is made up of the umbra, which blocks direct sunlight, and the penumbra, which partially blocks it. During the eclipse, the moon will not disappear completely, but will darken to some degree.
The event will last for approximately four hours and will be visible from various regions, including Asia, Australia, Russia, and parts of Africa. The peak of the eclipse will occur around 2:20 AM, and it will end at 4:34 AM.
