Total Eclipse Tonight Post Posted: Wed Oct 08, 2014 11:01 am 

The second and last lunar total eclipse of this year will occur Wednesday, 8th October.

North and south America, the Pacific ocean, New Zealand, Australia and Eastern Asia's star gazers are in a good position to watch the total eclipse. As the moon will be below the horizon during most of the eclipse, India will be able to witness its last stage only.

However, it would be visible partially in some parts of India and that too for a very short time time towards the end of the eclipse.

As per the reports, the total lunar eclipse India will start from 1.44 pm and continue till 6:05 pm.

Total lunar eclipse happens when the moon is completely in the Earth's shadow and any light reaching the moon must first pass through the Earth's atmosphere. Instead of sunlight reflection, the shadowed moon is bathed in a red light that bends around our atmosphere.

This eclipse is the second in a rare series known as the tetrad, in which the moon is completely covered by the Earth's shadow for four eclipses in a row, as opposed to only partial eclipses that fall in the outer penumbra.

The first lunar eclipse of the year occurred on 15th April.
