The lunar eclipse will be seen in the country on 26 May. The lunar eclipse will be seen in the country next Wednesday (May 26) after 6 pm. The eclipse will begin at half past noon with the moon entering the shadow.
Thursday (May 20) Deputy Director-General of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department. Asadur Rahman said, if the sky is clear, it can be seen in Bangladesh from the time of moonrise to the end of the eclipse.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon, sun, and earth are in a straight line and the shadow of the earth falls on the moon. As the moon moves closer to the earth during the lunar eclipse, it becomes comparatively larger to see. Then that moon is also called Super Moon. In such a situation, the brightness of the moon seems to be relatively high.
According to the US space agency NASA, the Super Moon appears when the Moon moves very close to the Earth at the stage of its orbit. At this time the moon looks 14% bigger than the earth. Its brightness also increases up to 30%.
According to the country’s meteorological office, the moon will enter the shadow at 2:46:06 pm Bangladesh time, with its central course from Pitcairn Island in the United States to the southwest in the South Pacific Ocean.
At 3:44:36 p.m., the Moon will enter the shadow, with its central course from Pepit Island in French Polynesia southeast to the South Pacific Ocean.
The full eclipse will begin at 5:09:24 p.m., with its central course from the U.S. island of Aloe vera to the southeast in the South Pacific Ocean. The central eclipse will begin at 5:18:42 p.m., with its central course east of Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean. Its maximum level will be 1 decimal 016.
