Lunar Eclipse 2010
Lunar Eclipse (Chandra Grahan) is a stage of Moon’s cycle, where the Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun. Lunar eclipse occurs at a moment when the Moon, Sun and Earth are absolutely aligned or reach nearer, with the Earth in the middle of the three. A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the full moon enter a portion of Earth's shadow. Normally during a full moon, the moon shines brightly by the sunlight hits it, but occasionally the moon will pass into Earth's shadow and dim during an eclipse.
The partial lunar eclipse is going to take place on 26th June 2010 (1932 Vikruthi Samvatsara), the first of two lunar eclipses in 2010. At maximum eclipse 53.7% of the moon will be covered by the earth's shadow. At this time the Moon will be transiting to Sagittarius sign and Mool nakshtra. The sign and nakshtra by which Moon is transiting gets affected by eclipse the most. There may be some most evil effects as this lunar eclipse is falling on Saturday & it's Jayeshtha Poornima ( Full Moon day in Jayeshta month).
It can be seen in North & South America, Austarlia, China and Far East. Unfortunately this eclipse can not be seen from Europe, Africa, Middleast, Northern Russia and Nothern Canada. In India, it will be visible only in North-East India and that too for less than a minute.
