Red Moon rising: Photos from the partial lunar eclipse

Regular sun glasses are not enough to keep out harmful solar rays, even when the sun is partly covered. "This is in contrast to a solar eclipse in which the timings of the contacts change as the location changes on earth", Rathnashree said. The phenomenal eclipse is scheduled to unfold on August 21.

Eclipses are varied. During a total #Solar Eclipse, the Moon's shadow perfectly covers the Sun. Most of the utility-scale solar in California will only be 60-70% affected, given that the bulk of utility-scale solar is in Southern California, almost 1,000 miles from the path of the eclipse. Remember that special glasses or viewers will be needed to view the eclipse. "A solar eclipse is when the moon passes right by the sun, blocking it out, and causing what we call a solar eclipse".

A lunar eclipse occurred in the country on Monday night, an official of the Met Office said here.

On August 21, the Naperville area will see a deep partial eclipse, but not a total eclipse.

The path continues across the continent in a southeasterly arc where the show will end near Charleston, South Carolina at 4:09 p.m. EDT. The shadow's path is predicted to pass the coast of OR and will travel all the way to Southern California in the East.

Lunar Eclipse 2017: A partial lunar eclipse is seen in Nairobi, Kenya, the second of two lunar eclipses in 2017. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse of the sun including direct viewing - which requires some type of filtering device and indirect viewing where you project an image of the sun onto a screen.

You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection except during totality. "Our astronomy club will have a couple of telescopes set up with the solar filter attached so you will be able to see magnified views of the sun that way".

Glasses that are safe for directly viewing the sun must meet the International Organization for Standardization's standard, and will indicate they are ISO 12312-2 compliant.
