In July of this year, there will be a partial or partial lunar eclipse, you!

Lunar eclipse and solar eclipse
Previously, you already knew the difference between a Partial Lunar Eclipse and a Total Moon Eclipse, haven't you?
Total lunar eclipse occurs when all parts of the Moon's face enter the shadow of the Umbra or the darkest shadow of the Earth.
Meanwhile, a partial lunar eclipse occurs when part of the face of the Moon enters the umbra shadow of the Earth.
According to the site Time and Date, Solar eclipses always occur about two weeks before or after the lunar eclipse, friends.
Friends certainly remember, right? Last July 2, 2019 there was also a total solar eclipse sky event.

Partial Lunar Eclipse Phase July 17, 2019
Well, here is the phase of the Partial Lunar Eclipse that will occur in Jakarta with West Indonesia Time, friends.
At 1:43 a.m., the Moon will enter the penumbra or the faint shadow of the Earth.
Then at 3:01 a.m., a partial lunar eclipse will begin with the face of the moon that looks slightly reddish.
Partial Lunar Eclipse will reach its peak at 04:30 WIB because the Moon is getting closer to the center of the umbra shadow.
This means that the peak of the Partial Moon Eclipse will be seen at 5:30 WITA in Central Indonesia and at 6:30 WIT in the Eastern Indonesia region.
