Star-gazers in the Arab world should keep their eyes peeled on Monday (August 7) for a partial lunar eclipse, which will be visible from 7.50pm to 11.21pm GST.

Observers in Africa, Asia and Australia will see the Partial eclipse in its entirety.

Unlike the solar eclipse that will occur later this month, the partial lunar eclipse will last for a couple of hours, appearing its darkest and most clear at around 18.20 UTC, which is around 2:20 p.m. EST if you feel like converting. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.

Unlike the Great American Eclipse, where safety precautions are needed for skygazers hoping to watch the event as it happens, there are no such safeguards needed for those who want to catch Monday's partial lunar eclipse, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The partial eclipse will reach its peak at 1822 GMT. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon align in an nearly straight line.

It said in Manila, the moon will rise at 6:03 p.m. on August 7 and will set at 5 a.m. on August 8. The upcoming partial eclipse of the Moon will be visible from all places of India.

The complete details of Partial Eclipse of the Moon from Mysuru are given below in Indian Standard Time: Partial Lunar Eclipse on August 7.
