    A total lunar eclipse will take place on June 15, 2011. It is the first of two total lunar eclipses in 2011, the second occurring on December 10.
    It is a relatively rare central eclipse where the moon passes through the center line[SUP][clarification needed][/SUP] of the Earth's shadow. The last lunar eclipse closer to the center of the earth's shadow was on July 16, 2000. The next central total lunar eclipse will be on July 27, 2018.


    [h=2]Visibility[/h]It will be visible completely over Africa, and Central Asia, visible rising over South America, western Africa, and Europe, and setting over eastern Asia. In western Asia, Australia and the Philippines, the lunar eclipse will be visible just before sunrise.


    [h=3]Inex series[/h] The Inex series repeat eclipses 20 days short of 29 years, repeating on average every 10571.95 days. This period is equal to 358 lunations (synodic months) and 388.5 draconic months. Saros series increment by one on successive Inex events and repeat at alternate ascending and descending lunar nodes.
    This period is 383.6734 anomalistic months (the period of the Moon's elliptical orbital precession). Despite the average 0.05 time-of-day shift between subsequent events, the variation of the Moon in its elliptical orbit at each event causes the actual eclipse time to vary significantly.
    All events in this series listed below and more are total lunar eclipses.

    "These signs which Allah sends do not occur because of the life or death of somebody, but Allah makes His worshipers afraid by them. So when you see anything thereof, proceed to remember Allah, invoke Him and ask for His forgiveness."

    LUNARECLIPSEOn Wednesday, 15th June 2011 there will be a total eclipse of themoon. The eclipse starts at 8:22pm, is total from 9:21 pm to11:02pm, and ends at 00:02am. It will be visible all over Africa,although north-west Africa misses the start.Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam has stated in regards to Solarand Lunar eclipses:Verily the sun and moon are two signs from amongstthe signs of Allah. They do not eclipse due to thedeath or birth of anyone. When you see them ineclipse, then hasten towards Salaah.” BukhariIt is Sunnah to perform two Rakaats of Salaah at the time ofeclipses. During a lunar eclipse Salaah is read individually and notin congregation.May Allah grant us the Tawfiq to revive this dormantSunnah in our lives, Ameen.
