Pennews

Hundreds of thousands of sky gazers all over the world were lucky today to watch a Lunar Eclipse which was also visible in India with the moon glowing reddish brown.

The total lunar eclipse in India started at 4:21pm IST though wasn't visible before 5:18pm IST when the partial eclipse actually began. The partial eclipse ended at 8:41pm IST while penumbral eclipse ended at 9:38pm IST. This was the first 'Super Blue Blood Moon' (Supermoon) total eclipse in 150 years. After this , the next time that a Blue Moon passes through Earth's umbra will be on December 31, 2028, and, after that, on January 31, 2037. Both of these eclipses will be total. NASA has gone live with its live stream of total lunar eclipse and you can watch it right here.

The maximum total eclipse was at 6:59PM IST which means the Moon went dark at this time.
