The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will take place on August 5 at 8:55pm EDT. The eclipse will occur at 13 degrees of Aquarius, according reports of NASA.
A lunar eclipse is an eclipse which occurs whenever the moon passes behind the Earth with the Earth blocking the sun's rays from striking the moon.
This can occur only when the sun, Earth, and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely, with the Earth in the middle. Therefore there is always a full moon the night of a lunar eclipse.
The first lunar eclipse was seen in February 2009. This August lunar eclipse is considered the third eclipse this year. The fourth and final eclipse of this lunar year will take place on 31 December 2009.
