What time is the lunar eclipse 2022?

According to the Indian government’s Ministry of Earth Science, the eclipse will begin at 2.39 PM IST on November 8, with the total eclipse beginning at 3.46 PM IST. The total phase of the eclipse, when the Moon is completely in the Earth’s shadow, will end at 5.12 PM IST, and the partial phase will end at 6.19 PM IST.

The last total lunar eclipse in three years will occur on November 8, 2022, with the next on March 14, 2025 — though partial and penumbral lunar eclipses will continue to occur during that time.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon all align, causing the Moon to pass into the shadow of the Earth. During a total lunar eclipse, the entire Moon is engulfed in the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, known as the umbra. When the Moon is in the umbra, it turns a reddish colour. Because of this, lunar eclipses are sometimes referred to as “Blood Moons.”


Is the total lunar eclipse visible in India?

The total phase of the eclipse will be in progress at the time of moonrise in Eastern parts of the country, including Kolkata and Guwahati, according to the Indian government’s Ministry of Earth Science. However, the totality would have ended by the time of Moonrise in other cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bengaluru. However, most other Indian cities will see a partial eclipse.
