In yet another astounding astronomical event, we earthlings will witness a total lunar eclipse today, November 8, 2022. Here is a break of what that means:
What is a lunar eclipse? It is when Sun, Earth, and Moon align in a straight line and the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow.
The Moon takes on a reddish hue when it moves into Earth’s shadow, this phenomenon is commonly known as ‘Blood Moon’.
Today’s total lunar eclipse is the last for the next three years. The next total lunar eclipse will take place in 2025.
In India, the movement towards the total lunar eclipse or Chandra Grahan will begin at 2.39 pm and the eclipse will end at 6:19 pm.
The eclipse will be visible to all during moonrise but both the partial and full lunar eclipse will be visible only in some parts of the country.
If you follow astrology, the total lunar eclipse implies the emotion of breaking free from emotional baggage and situations holding you back. The zodiacs of Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio will feel the impact the most.
