Learning about the solar system and eclipses really does trigger an in-depth interest in everyone. Today, May 5, 2023, marks a penumbral lunar eclipse that will begin at around 11.15pm in Malaysia. This is said to be visible across parts of India, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, the Pacific, the Atlantic, the Indian Ocean, and the Antarctic.
The occurrence of a penumbral lunar eclipse happens when the sun, earth, and moon are imperfectly aligned. In this instance, the Earth blocks some of the sun’s direct light from reaching the moon’s surface and completely or partially casts a shadow on the moon’s surface.
Despite the fact that astronomical phenomena are captivating, eclipse occurrences are often deemed important events in Indian astrology and Vastu Shastra. It is also believed that they have a substantial influence on our lives.
A well-known astrologer, Pankaj Goel, has unveiled a comprehensive list of some dos and don’ts that one must keep in mind during the lunar eclipse phenomenon happening today (May 5).
