Europe, Much Of Russia To Experience Partial Lunar Eclipse On August 7

Educational app released ahead of highly anticipated solar eclipse

During Monday night's lunar eclipse, it was moving north to south and was shadowed by the Earth on its travels. "So the moon is moving fastest of the motions involved". Lunar eclipses fall within two weeks of a solar eclipse, the website space.com says.

A big swath of SC will see the eclipse, but one of the best places will be the city of Greenville, which lies in the path of totality.

A partial lunar eclipse is pictured beside a building in Berlin, Germany. The great American eclipse will be one of the most historical events in the astronomical history of the decade.

A solar eclipse, on the other hand, is seen during the day. From there the lunar shadow leaves the United States at 4:09 EDT.

Even with something this incredible, the eclipse can be risky to watch.

So as a fun way to prepare for the eclipse you can actually make your own pinhole projector.

"It's never okay to look at the sun's rays even if the moon is blocking part of the sun", Hennessy said.

The event - which won't be full, but rather a partial lunar eclipse -will occur on Monday evening in the aforementioned territories as well as Antarctica.

The last time a total solar eclipse was visible in the United States was in 1979. "Like Mars has these 2 really tiny moons, so if they go across in front of the sun, which they do".

-What causes an eclipse to occur? "That is the light passing through the earth's atmosphere on its way to the moon and is known as the penumbral phase of the eclipse".

Get your eclipse glasses ready. "But yes, it's a celestial event, which can happen on any Full Moon whenever the Earth moves in between the Moon and the Sun", said Scientific Officer at SPACE, Mila Mitra. On its orbit around Earth, the Moon passes directly between our planet and the Sun. We haven't had an eclipse do that in almost a century.

Partial Lunar Eclipse seen in Kolkata. During the latter, you'll probably never see anything. The total span of the partial eclipse is 1 hour, 55 minutes. "It will also be nearly at its highest point (the sun is high in the sky when it is directly south, 180 deg)", Speck said.
