KARACHI, March 14 (Online): The penumbral eclipse of moon would occur during Tuesday-Wednesday night, said Director Pakistan Meteorological Department Karachi Malik Sallahuddin on Monday.

Penumbral moon eclipse will begin at 02:22 PST, the greatest eclipse would occur at 04: 48 PST and it would end at 07:14 PST on Wednesday morning. However, the penumbral moon eclipse will be best visible only in Africa and Europe.
