"The Moon will not be shadowed again until January 31, 2018 when a total eclipse is expected to occur", he said. The full moon will emerge from the shadow area at 1918 GMT, and then the partial eclipse will end, said the report.
The duration of the total eclipse will be five hours and one minute, while the duration of partial phase of lunar eclipse will be one hour and fifty five minutes. When a portion of the moon alone crosses the dark shadow, the eclipse is known as partial eclipse.
Given all that, Monday night's partial lunar eclipse might not be a grand treat for skygazers on the same level as the Great American Eclipse two weeks from now. This can occur only when the sun, Earth, and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle.More news: Leaked Transcripts of Trump's Calls to World Leaders Draw Bipartisan Condemnation

Lunar eclipses also have the advantage of being visible from the entire hemisphere of the Earth where the Moon is above the horizon, rather than being most impressive along a narrow track.
The lunar eclipse will be visible from parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, and peaks 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 GMT). The level of darkened is often described in terms of the DANJON SCALE. In Kathmandu, the eclipse will begin at 11:07pm and ends at 1:03am.
Get ready to witness the lunar eclipse on August 7.
