New Delhi: Ahead of the lunar eclipse 2020 on Friday, an astrologer on Twitter has predicted that this eclipse will make people furious. “Unrest among normal people will rise, making them angrier across the world until April. Coastal areas will also see a tough phase in this time period,” astrologer Anirudh Kumar Mishra tweeted. However, Japan will be worst-hit by the eclipse, said the astrologer.
This is the same astrologer who predicted the timeline of Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict. However, his recent prediction of Devendra Fadnavis becoming the CM of Maharashtra went wrong. He has also predicted that ‘Delhi will slip out of Kejriwal’s hand’.
Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe will be able to witness the astronomical wonder as the earth will block some of the sunlight from reach the moon and only the outer shadow (the penumbra) will fall on the moon. Meanwhile, today is also a full moon day.
Where can you see it
Due to clouds, cold weather, rain and snowfall, the penumbral lunar eclipse will not be visible much in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and other northern states of India. However, people living in southern India will be able to view it better.
