Expert Astronomer at the Qatari Calendar House Dr Beshir Marzouk said that this solar eclipse will be a partial eclipse of the sun, as the moon will cover 74 percent of the entire solar disk when the solar eclipse reaches its peak. This eclipse will also be a, a phenomenon where the appears red in colour. It is expected to begin at 1.32 pm and end at 5.00 pm (IST).

He pointed out that this partial eclipse of the sun comes after the longest lunar eclipse during the present century, which was seen in Qatar on Friday, July 27.

By aligning each photo of the eclipsing moon in just the right order, so as to sequence the visible curvature of Earth's umbra, Harradine was able to get the full picture of our planet's deep shadow, as revealed by all the combined moons.

From the Cape of Good Hope to the Middle East, and from the Kremlin to Sydney Harbour, thousands of people turned their eyes to the stars to watch the moon, which turned dark before shining orange, brown and crimson in the shadow. Coming up on January 21, 2019, a third consecutive total lunar eclipse will also be off center and find the Moon near perigee.

Although the "Blood Moon" snubbed North America, media coverage of the astronomical display on June 27 softened the bitterness of US stargazers after being excluded from one of the most remarkable celestial shows of the year.

Interestingly, only the North American countries were deprived of the viewing of the Blood Moon on July 27-28. This will make the moon appear smaller than regular, and much smaller than it looks during the Super Moon (when the moon is at the closest point in its orbit from the Earth).
