  Lunar eclipse to take place today
  今日上演天狗食月


  ▲ File photo: lunar eclipse in Wuhan Photo by Zhan Song
  A lunar eclipse will come to China today. Although technically a partial eclipse, it will be very close to a total one. Beginning at 3:18 p.m., it will reach its maximum extent at 5:03 p.m. and end at 6:47 p.m. The entire process will last 3 hours and 29 minutes.
  今日,一场月偏食将震撼登场。食分(月球被食的程度)很大,几乎接近全食。本次月偏食于北京时间15时18分迎来初亏,17时03分食甚,18时47分复圆,历时3小时29分钟。
  It is a good opportunity to view this phenomenon, as nearly all the densely populated areas in China are positioned to see this lunar eclipse at sunset. If the weather is good, why not go outdoors and enjoy this spectacular scene?
  本次月食带覆盖了我国几乎所有人口密集的区域,同时又发生在日落时分,观测条件绝佳。如果天气晴好,大家可以走到户外,欣赏这难得的“天狗食月”奇景。
