Lhasa citizens are expected to view partial lunar eclipse, lasting from 18:16 to 21:00, on May 15, according to Tseten Dorje, deputy director of the Tibet Astronomy and Calendar Research Institute.

Jan. 15 would see an annular solar eclipse eight seconds in China, but Lhasa's astronomy enthusiasts have no such luck to appreciate this spectacular phenomenon because of improper longitude and latitude as well as time difference.
