Second lunar eclipse of the year to occur on July 7

The second lunar eclipse of the year occurring on July 7 will not be visible from India. The eclipse begins at 14hrs.07m.51sec., and ends at 16.h 09m according to Indian Standard Time. According to N Sri Ragunandan Kumar, general secretary, Planetary Society India said that it will be visible from Australia, Pacific region and America.

During the eclipse only 15 percent of the Moon will be immersed in earth's outer shadow and said the eclipse was only of academic interest. This will be followed by a total solar eclipse on July 22that can be seen from India.

Stressing that the solar eclipse must be seen only through solar filters, he said the Society would make them available at a cost of Rs.50 for each pair. The Society will conduct scientific experiments involving students to disprove superstitious beliefs about the impact of eclipse.
