TAM to Stream Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in the Early Hours of the Weekend!

Photo of a Lunar Eclipse The first of 4 penumbral lunar eclipses this year will occur in the early hours of January 11.

The lunar eclipse is expected to begin at 01:05, with maximum eclipse at 03:10, and the phenomenon will end at 05:14, lasting a total of 4 hours and 9 minutes, and the entire process is visible.

Unlike ordinary lunar eclipses, a penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s penumbra and decreases in brightness; the blood moon phenomenon of the lunar eclipse also does not appear in this case, and one can only detect the subtle changes through careful observation or photography.

The TAM will stream the entire process live using its professional telescope, so that citizens may catch a glimpse of the penumbral lunar eclipse.
