The final lunar eclipse of 2023 is set to be a spectacular celestial event, with the moon putting on a grand display in the form of a partial lunar eclipse. This event will conclude the series of remarkable sky shows that have taken place throughout October.
The partial lunar eclipse will occur as the moon moves into Earth’s shadow, an event that will be visible from various parts of the world including the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic, Antarctica, North America, Asia, Australia, and Africa.

This particular lunar eclipse is scheduled to take place during October’s full moon, known as the Hunter’s Moon. It will begin on Saturday, October 28, and continue until Sunday, October 29. The reason this lunar eclipse is only partial is due to the imperfect alignment of the Earth, moon, and sun.

For those in Pakistan, they will also have the opportunity to witness this partial lunar eclipse. According to the Met Office, the Penumbral Eclipse will commence at 23:02 PST on October 28th, and the partial eclipse will start at 00-35 PST on October 29th. The penumbral eclipse is expected to conclude at 03:26 PST, while the partial eclipse will end at 01:53 PST.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth casts a shadow on the moon’s surface, which happens when it is positioned between the sun and the moon. These events are particularly interesting to observe as they can only be seen during a full moon.
