KUWAIT CITY, April 27: The Al-Ajairi Scientific Center said that a shadow eclipse of the moon will occur on the fifth of next May, and it will be a total eclipse in some regions of the world, at a time when the full moon of Shawwal will be completed in the middle of the eclipse date.

The center said in a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Thursday, that the state of the eclipse to which the moon will be exposed will start at 6:18 pm and will extend for four hours and 17 minutes and will end completely at 10:31 pm. He stated that the vision of the eclipse in Kuwait was expressed by Dr. Saleh Al-Ajiri, may God have mercy on him, in cases of frequent monitoring of these astronomical phenomena, that “the moon enters the shadow and is not eclipsed,” meaning that the state in which the moon will be above the sky of Kuwait is a “semi-shadow” eclipse, and in this case the moonlight becomes fading without fading.

The center added that the total lunar eclipse will be seen in some continents and regions around the world, and observers will be able to see it with the naked eye, especially since the moon will almost disappear in the shadow of the earth, and the edge of its northern disk will be visible if the weather is clear. He pointed out that the full moon of the month of Shawwal for the year 1444 AH will be completed in the middle of the eclipse phenomenon, as the moon will be full at 8:35 pm. (KUNA)
