2018 Lunar Eclipse, Chandra Grahan
Lunar Eclipse Starts (With Moonrise) – 17:57:56
Lunar Eclipse Ends – 20:41:10
The shadow is composed of two cone-shaped parts, one nested inside the other. The outer shadow or penumbra is a zone where Earth shadow is partial and blocks some, but not all of the Sun’s rays.
In contrast, the inner shadow or umbra is a region where Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. It is only when a part of the Moon passes through the umbra, a partial lunar eclipse is seen.
