This July 16, 2019 in much of the world you can see a partial lunar eclipse. On average, these types of astronomical phenomena occur about twice a year, but not all of them are total.
In Spain, it will start at 22:01 (local time). At 11:30 p.m., it will be the maximum phase and will come to an end at 00:59.
This map of NASA shows the areas in which the eclipse will be seen:
“In Chile the most impressive moment of the eclipse will be given at 05:52 pm (local time)” according to Time and Date.”As the Moon will be close to the horizon at that time, it is recommended to go to a high point or find an unobstructed area with free view to the southeast to get the best view of this astronomical phenomenon,” Time and Date said in a statement.
It is important to clarify that to observe this type of eclipses no ocular protection is necessary, unlike those of the Sun.
A lunar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the Earth passes directly between the Moon and the Sun, causing the Earth to project and generate a shadow over the Moon. For this to happen, the three celestial bodies are required to be perfectly aligned.
“A partial eclipse is more dramatic. Since, the Moon submerges in the center of the shadow of the Earth but not in its totality; so that only a fraction of the Moon is obscured, “according to a NASA statement.
In general, lunar eclipses do not have a particular order. A partial eclipse can follow a total, and then another penumbral, etc. Anything can happen. On certain occasions, however, the sequence is more orderly.
