Last night, on Tuesday, July 16 UAE residents witnessed the last visible lunar eclipse till the next four years.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth aligns itself in-between the sun and the moon, casting its shadow on the moon, thus giving the moon a reddish glow.

Although, yesterday sapiens only got to experience a ‘partial’ eclipse, where only a part of the moon’s surface was covered by the earth’s shadow.
