Moon to Play Hide and Seek This Week
On June 15, the Earth's shadow will cause a total lunar eclipse as passes through the path between the Sun and the Moon.
This is going to happen sometime between Tuesday midnight and the wee hours of Wednesday.
But, areas at west of the International Date Line will see the upcoming lunar eclipse during the morning early hours of Thursday, June 16.
A lunar eclipse takes place when the three celestial bodies get aligned and sunlight is blocked by the Earth and its shadow falls on the moon.
As the moon will cross the path through the central part of the earth’s shadow, it will appear darker what it usually appear during other eclipses.
As the moon will climb higher in the sky, watchers will be able to witness it slowly getting free from the Earth's shadow beginning at 2102 GMT.
The eclipse will last for about 100 minutes, which is somewhat a pretty long interval for lunar eclipses in general.
