The first total lunar eclipse had taken place then, according to astronomers and lunar eclipse historians. It has been reported that this time the total lunar eclipse will last for some one hour, seventeen minutes and forty-eight seconds. Above all, it will be visible from the central Atlantic westward to eastern Australia. The good thing about stargazers is that the total lunar eclipse can be viewed by the entire moonward facing hemisphere of the Earth. If you are one of the star gazers then don’t miss this opportunity.

 

When it comes to timing and schedule, the eclipse is set to begins at 4:37 UT /12:37 AM EDT, when the Moon comes close to the western periphery of the Earth’s shadow known. This is known as penumbra. NASA says that soon Moon will be fully inside the penumbra by 5:58 UT/1:58 AM EDT.
