Lunar eclipses are caused when the Earth’s shadow covers all or part of the Moon during the lunar eclipse. They can only occur during the full Moon. A super moon is caused when the Moon’s closest approach to the Earth coincides with a full or new moon. During a lunar eclipse, the moon will appear blood-red for 14 minutes. This Super Blood Moon will last until 6:05 pm, but Pakistan will not see it due to daylight.
