The year 2020 is an exciting one for astronomical buffs as after the first solar eclipse of 2020 that occurred on June 21, comes the turn of the penumbral lunar eclipse on July 5, 2020. This lunar eclipse will be visible across North America, South America, Europe and parts of western Africa.
Penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon, the Sun and the Earth are not aligned perfectly with each other. Interestingly, the penumbral lunar eclipse slated to occur on July 5 is also known as Thunder Moon Eclipse.
