Partial Lunar Eclipse to be visible in Pakistan from 12:52 am till 01:23 am on April 26. It will reach its peak at 1:09 am, so look at the sky and enjoy.

Precautions need??

The lunar eclipse will not give off any harmful radiations, it means that they will be able to view the phenomenon without reserve, unlike a solar eclipse. So enjoy it.

Difference between solar eclipse and lunar eclipse

Solar eclipse can only be viewed in a comparatively small region, a lunar eclipse is visible to anyone living on the night side of the earth.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the moon and the sun forming more-or-less a straight line. Viewers will then watch the moon beginning to take a reddish hue and eventually turning deep red, before it will return to its normal silver white shade.

The umbral and the penumbral are two types of lunar eclipse, depending on the shadows of the earth — the umbra and the penumbra.

A penumbral eclipse is when the moon passes through the Earth’s penumbral shadow, but this is very difficult to see.
  •  A partial lunar eclipse occurs when a portion of the moon passes through the Earth’s umbral shadow. This is easy to see and can be viewed by the naked eye without any danger of damage to the eye whatsoever.
  • A total lunar eclipse occurs when the whole moon disappears as it passes through the Earth’s umbral shadow. This is when the moon emits very different vibrant colors which are breathtakingly beautiful.

Lunar eclipse in Karachi?

Lunar eclipse and Clouds

Lunar eclipse and Clouds

All clouds gone just for the lunar eclipse. So Karachiites do not forget to watch it!

While in Lahore, there are some high level and medium level clouds, so Lahoris you might see the longest lunar eclipse clearly.
What about Islamabadis? You guys are not lucky, infact there is a strong thunderstorm heading towards your area, if it maintains it’s intensity then Islamabad could experience some heavy downpour, but not the lunar eclipse!
