Full scale lunar eclipse on Thursday

CHENNAI, JANUARY 30TH

When the planet earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, with the shadow of the earth falling on the Moon, a lunar eclipse occurs. When all these 3-Sun, Moon, and the Earth-are in a straight line, a full-scale lunar eclipse occurs.
A full-scale lunar eclipse is set to occur tomorrow (Wednesday, 31st January). This happens on the 2nd Full Moon Day in the month of January (another rare occasion). The moon will be seen in blue colour. Hence. This is an event known as ‘blue moon’.
A special feature is that the eclipse occurs just at the moment of appearance of the moon in the sky. When the Moon appears in the depths of the sky, the full-scale lunar eclipse begins at 6.25 PM. This will last till 7.25 PM
