The full lunar eclipse will be visible in many countries of the world including India on November 8

About a fortnight after the partial solar eclipse on the next day of Diwali, India and many other countries of the world will see a total lunar eclipse on November 8. Famous astronomer Debi Prasad Duari gave this information. Duari said that apart from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Russia, people from many other parts of Asia, North and South America, Australia, the North Atlantic Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean region will be able to witness this celestial event.

Duari said that the total lunar eclipse will not be visible everywhere and initially a partial lunar eclipse will be visible in some countries of Latin America. He said that on November 8, the lunar eclipse will start at 2:39 pm Indian time and will reach its full phase at around 3.46 pm. Around 4.30 pm the Moon will be completely covered by the Earth's shadow. Duari said that the total eclipse will end at 5:11 pm, while the partial eclipse will end around 6.19 pm. He said, the eclipse will be visible in all parts of India from the time of the moonrise, but the initial phases, both partial and complete, will not be visible, as both events will start when the Moon is below the horizon everywhere in the country.

Duari said that people in parts of eastern India, including Kolkata, would be able to witness a total lunar eclipse, while people in the rest of the country would see only a partial phase of the eclipse and progress in it. In the city of Kolkata, the moon will start rising from the eastern horizon at around 4:52 pm and will be fully visible two minutes later. Duari said that after the moonrise in New Delhi, a partial eclipse will be visible from around 5.30 pm, in which the moon will be seen to be 66 percent covered. He said that the next total lunar eclipse in India will be visible on September 7, 2025.
