This kind of eclipse event happens when the moon crosses Earth's outer shadow, or penumbra, giving it a reddish brown hue. The last three lunar eclipses occurred on January 10, June 5, and July 4. Incidentally, the three previous lunar eclipses that occurred this year were Penumbral. On the other hand, many countries situated in the European continent, Australia, North America, South America and countries situated on the Pacific and Atlantic coast will be witness to the fourth and last lunar penumbral eclipse of the year.
A penumbral lunar eclipse will take place late Sunday night in Monday morning, November 29 to 30, according to NASA, gradually darkening the face of the moon for more than four hours. The last lunar eclipse of this year will affect the Taurus sign and Rohini nakshatra, said astrologers adding that it could also have an effect on nearly all the zodiac signs.More news: Article image French ship pulls 45 migrants from Channel

It is worth mentioning that it is important not to confuse this type of lunar eclipse with the total and the partial. The lunar eclipse will be below the horizon in several major cities, including Delhi and Mumbai. Three eclipses lined up in a period of one month, astrophysicists said that while double eclipses are common, triples are rare. Except if you're a prepared skywatcher, it very well might be trying to see November's penumbral eclipse, which will be noticeable in North America (as long as there aren't overcast skies), on the grounds that the penumbral shadow will show up as a faint cover. As per details, it will be a total solar eclipse and the second solar eclipse of the year.More news: "Discussed Vaccine Implementation Plan With PM": Serum Institute's Adar Poonawalla
