Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are exactly in line, when the Moon passes through the shadow of Earth and hence gets eclipsed. But this time Moon is not passing though the centre of the shadow but through an edge therefore only a part of the Moon will be eclipsed.
SPACE is taking a scientific expedition of approx. 50 students to Shanghai, to witness the Transit of Venus on 6th June, 2012. For this group, it will be a double bonus as they will also be able to see “The partial Lunar Eclipse” on June 4th, 2012, which is not visible from India.
