The first lunar eclipse fell in January, the second one appeared last month on June 5 and the third eclipse is going to appear on July 5. A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon and the Moon moves through the faint, outer part of the Earth's shadow.

A Lunar Eclipse is of three types - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, Partial Lunar Eclipse and a Central Lunar Eclipse or a Total Lunar Eclipse. The penumbral eclipse happens when Earth, Moon and Sun are not completely aligned.

According to experts, 35 per cent of the Lunar Eclipses are "Penumbral" while the same number of eclipses are total eclipses of the moon. Solar eclipse always falls on Amavasya and Moon full moon day and now there is a difference of 4 lakh km distance between the Earth and Moon and they are moving in their respective orbit.
