Total Lunar Eclipse Today


Kathmandu, Oct 8: There will be a total eclipse of the full moon today. A partial lunar eclipse can also be seen after sunset from Nepal.

The October 2014 full moon passes directly through Earth’s dark (umbral) shadow. The total part of the October 8 eclipse lasts nearly one hour. A partial umbral eclipse precedes totality by about one hour and 10 minutes, and follows totality by about the same period of time, so the moon takes about 3 and 1/3 hours to completely sweep through the Earth’s dark shadow.

The total eclipse begins at 4:10 pm Nepali time with the greatest eclipse appearing at 4:40 pm. The total eclipse ends at 5:09 pm, according to Astronomer at Balmikee Campus Jayant Acharya.
