The year 2020 is set to have its third Lunar Eclipse in a very short period of time. Known commonly as Troika, the phenomenon occurs very rarely in quick succession, and hence the upcoming lunar eclipse on July 5 is nothing short of special. The first part of the Troika, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse was observed exactly a month before the scheduled date of the next lunar eclipse, ie., on June 5 that followed an annular solar eclipse on June 21. The upcoming July Lunar Eclipse will mark the completion of Troika with Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on July 5.

2020 has been the year of many unprecedented and unique events in the world and by all probability, it will be a year to remember in an astronomical sense as well.
