The first lunar eclipse (Chandra grahan) of the year will occur on May 5. A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth's shadow covers a significantly large area than the Moon. This will be a lunar penumbral eclipse, the moon will not be completely opposite the Earth and Sun indicating that there isn't going to be 'umbral' eclipse, in which the Sun entirely blocks the Sun's brightness. According to EarthSky, the full Moon is expected to be south of the planet's umbra, or dark shadow, on May 5. As a result, the Moon's shine will be diminished rather than fully obscured.
