Partial lunar eclipse early on Tuesday morning a precursor to solar eclipse

Partial lunar eclipse early on Tuesday morning a precursor to solar eclipse

What causes eclipses and why? "Like Mars has these 2 really tiny moons, so if they go across in front of the sun, which they do". "You get lunar eclipses when you have full moons, and you have solar eclipses when you have new moons".

A red hue over a part of the moon will also be visible.

For the first time in nearly 40 years the path of the moon's shadow passes through the continental United States. The Sun's light doesn't reach the moon's surface as the Earth blocks it.

This time the Earth was in the middle of the moon and sun, with the Earth casting a shadow on the moon, the Daily Mail reported.

These events are of only academic interest because they are subtle and hard to observe.

The moon orbits the Earth every 29 and a half days.

These events are easy to see, even with the unaided eye.

The Penumbral Solar Eclipse would begin at 20:47PST while the total phase to begin at 21:50PST which would turned into Greatest eclipse at 23:26PST.

You need the right protective glasses, such as those manufactured by Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical or TSE 17. While partial views will be available in Atlanta, if you want to be in the path of totality then head to North Georgia, North Carolina or SC. A standard pair obinoculars work fine. To see a total eclipse, where the moon fully covers the sun for a short few minutes, you must be in the path of totality. The main difference from one event to another is the degree to which the totally eclipsed Moon is darkened and how colourful it might be.

"This will be the first properly visible lunar eclipse this year", Debiprosad Duari, Director Research and Academic, M P Birla Planetarium, told PTI here today.

A lunar eclipse is either preceded by or followed by solar eclipse, which occurs two weeks on either side.

Beginning just after 10 a.m. local time in Lincoln Beach, Ore., the total eclipse will take approximately an hour and a half to pass over Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and SC.
