How to observe lunar eclipse
Get a binoculars or a telescope and go outside and find the Moon around 10pm. The peak occurs at 11:54pm when the whole Moon will be dim. You can easily observe this lunar eclipse phenomenon from Karachi or any where in Pakistan. The only condition is that the sky should be clear and without clouds. No need to avoid light pollution although light pollution itself is not good 🙂
You do not need a binoculars or a telescope. Just clear skies!
A binocular or a telescope would be a good addition though. Since it is a penumbral lunar eclipse, the Moon will not be fully dark. It will dim a bit which may not be noticeable too much with eyes. However, capturing photos before and after the eclipse may reveal difference.
