Lunar eclipse began at 10.54 pm yesterday and ended at 4.30 am today. The total eclipse began at 12.52 am and the point of greatest eclipse occured at 1.42 am. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks the sun's rays from striking the moon. This is how the eclipse was visible to Gampaha, Colombo and Wanni District. Pics. by Pradeep Dilrukshana, Indaratna Balasuriya and Romesh Madushanka
