Gowrish Babu
On November 8, 2022, the moon will pass into earth’s shadow and turn red.
According to NASA, the next complete lunar eclipse won’t happen for another three years until 14 March 2025.
However, people will be able to watch partial and penumbral lunar eclipses throughout that time.
The lunar eclipse will continue for a total duration of 45 minutes and 48 seconds. In India, it will begin at 5:32 p.m. and will conclude at 6:18 p.m.
Also known as 'chandra grahan' in India, the total lunar eclipse would be visible only in Kolkata, Siliguri, Patna, Ranchi, and Guwahati.
Meanwhile, partial eclipse would be visible from most of India.
You don’t need any special equipment to observe a lunar eclipse, although binoculars or a telescope will enhance the view and the red colour.
