Lunar Eclipse 2022: This Indian City Will Catch A First Look At This Year’s Final “Blood Moon”

On November 8, 2022, there will be the final total lunar eclipse, popularly known as Chandra Grahan in India. Skywatchers across North America, some of South America, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand will be able to see the celestial event, which will last for about 85 minutes.

When the Moon, Earth, and Sun are all in alignment, the Moon passes through the shadow that the Earth has thrown on it, resulting in a lunar eclipse. According to NASA, a total lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes through the umbra, the deepest region of the Earth’s shadow.

The next total lunar eclipse will take place on March 14, 2025, which is three years from now, according to the American space agency. However, there will still be a few partial lunar eclipses visible around the planet during that period.

Which city will get to see the lunar eclipse for the first time?

According to NASA, a partial lunar eclipse is scheduled to occur on November 8 at 4:44 EST (2:14 pm IST). On the same day, at 05:17 am EST (2:47 pm IST), the total eclipse phase, also referred to as the Blood Moon, is scheduled to occur. The eclipse will end at 6:42 am EST and reach its maximum at 4:29 pm IST (4:12 pm IST).

According to Timeanddate.com, the first sighting of the final “blood moon” in India will occur near Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh. It will start at 4:23 and go till 7:26. It will last for three hours and three minutes.

Additionally, Guwahati, Siliguri, Kolkata, and Bhubaneshwar will be able to see it. However, a partial eclipse will be visible in Mumbai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Chennai, and Srinagar.

How to see the lunar eclipse most effectively

A lunar eclipse is totally safe to view with the naked eye, unlike a solar eclipse. A telescope or a pair of binoculars will improve the vision and the red colour of the eclipse, but they are not necessary to see it.
