"About 3,000 visitors, including students accompanied by their parents, visited the planetarium between 11.54 p.m and 4.58 a.m to view the longest lunar eclipse through telescope", Director of planetarium Pramod G. Galgali told IANS here.

The lunar eclipse was set to start at 7:15pm; it ended at 1:28AM on Saturday.

The next full lunar Eclipse will primarily occur in the Western hemisphere, unlike the last Eclipse. "For instance, many don't eat during the eclipse and there are several notions attached to it". It will last almost 4 hours, during this time, the Moon will pass through Earth's shadow and will acquire a crimson hue, because of this, scientists have dubbed the coming Eclipse of the "blood".
