Special telescopes in city to watch lunar eclipse

Special telescopes in city to watch lunar eclipse

The lunar eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and peaks 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 GMT).

The last lunar eclipse of this year will be on Monday August 7, where it will be occurring during full moon of Hijric month "Dhul- Qa'da", Qatar Calendar House (QCH) announced. "The partial lunar eclipse will be visible with the naked eye".

MET officials say that the eclipse, which will be visible across the country, is scheduled to start at 8:50pm August 7 (Monday) and end at 1.51am August 8 (Tuesday).

Representatives of the Latvian Astronomical Society said at the beginning of the partial eclipse the Moon's surface will be covered by the outer part of the Earth's shadow called the penumbra.

All phases of lunar eclipse will be seen over Qatar sky.




Lunar and Solar eclipses happen in pairs, with the lunar eclipse happening within two weeks of a solar eclipse.

There are three types of lunar eclipse: total, partial and penumbral.

The main difference from one event to another is the degree to which the totally eclipsed Moon is darkened and how colourful it might be.

The August 7 lunar eclipse is associated with the upcoming major August 21 solar eclipse.
