  • Independence Day 2020 full moon lunar eclipse

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon and Sun are on opposite sides of Earth.

Traditionally known as Troika, the triplet succession of the eclipse is rare and unique.

The fantastically named "super blood wolf moon" of Jan. 20 and 21 was a stunner combining a total lunar eclipse (blood) with January timing (wolf) and a particularly large appearance due to being closer to the Earth (super).The Kalamazoo Astronomical Society in MI delivered an extraordinary set of images showing the moon and the occasional twinkling star around it.

In this kind of eclipse, the moon misses the inner, darkest part of Earth's shadow, which would make it turn deep red.

Penumbral eclipses are not as exciting because they unfold in the penumbra - a diffuse shadow cast by the Sun and Earth. The eclipse will take place in broad daylight from 8.37 am on July 5, and be most prominent at 9:59 am before ending at 11.22 am.

"This third kind of lunar eclipse [penumbral] is much more subtle, and much more hard to observe, than either a total or partial eclipse of the moon", the website explained. This too will be a penumbral lunar eclipse, but it will be visible over a larger area of land, including the Americas, Australia and eastern Asia.

The eclipse, which will be seen all across the globe, will appear approximately two hours and 45 minutes after the moon initially rises. The name comes from the summer storms that occur around July's full moon, giving it the name "Thunder Moon".

When is the best time to watch July's Full Moon? Certainly as eclipses go, a penumbral is a near "non-event, ' versus the awesome spectacle of a total lunar or solar eclipse".

It is believed by many in India that one should avoid consuming food during the time the lunar eclipse.

Jupiter and Saturn will also join the Thunder Moon on the night of July 4. Male deer, known as bucks, begin to sprout their antlers which is why it is called a Buck Moon.
