A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth. For this to happen the Sun, Earth, and Moon must be closely aligned with the Moon and the Moon located furthest from the Sun. There are a few different types of Lunar Eclipse that are determined by where the moon is in relationship to the shadow of the Earth.
A Penumbra Eclipse occurs when the moon only enters the Penumbra area of the Earth’s shadow. The Penumbra is a region of the shadow that is not completely obsured from the rays of the sun. This lighter shadow is a result of the relative size of the Sun to the Earth.
This type of Eclipse causes the moon to only darken slightly when viewed from earth and is one of the less dramatic Lunar eclipse.
The next Penumbral Eclipse will occur on Friday 5th June 2020.
Penumbral Eclipse begins on 5th June at 21.02 (UK Time)
Penumbral Eclipse ends at 22.04 (UK Time)
According to the rulings of Ayatullah Sistani (May Almighty Grant him a long life) Namaz e Ayat is not wajib during a penumbral lunar eclipse.
