Second lunar eclipse of year to be viewed in Pakistan today

08 August 2017

On Monday, August 21st, the first total solar eclipse in nearly 40 years will be visible in the U.S, and although the Arklatex will not see the total eclipse, the moon will still cover up 80 percent of it. In a thin band from OR to SC, people will see a total eclipse, where the sun is completely hidden by the moon.

Avid skywatchers are in for a celestial treat as a partial lunar eclipse will be visible from the starry night on Monday.

"Having so many people experience an eclipse like this is what makes it rare", said Emily Rice, an astronomer and assistant professor at the College of Staten Island.

Another Pixel 2 leak shows the device's huge front bezels
Google's apparent design decisions for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL indicate "serious problems ahead", according to Forbes' Gordon Kelly. When Google first announced the original Pixel phones past year , it's thick bezels never really had a goal ; it was just there.

The shaded area will be 25% of the surface of the moon, meaning this is a partial eclipse. This lunar eclipse will be "partial type"; where part of the Moon will passes through Earth's umbra shadow. If you're not already in the know, the lunar eclipse is happening today, August 7, people... so get ready to embrace it. "During the eclipse, we'll have live NASA feeds of the event".

Rice plans to take a road trip to Sweetwater, Tennessee, to see the full eclipse. According to SPACE (Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators ), the penumbral eclipse began at 9.22 p.m. on August 7 and ended at 2.20 a.m. on August 8. This results in Earth's shadow looking like it's about to "take a bite" out of the moon, instead of covering it completely. The Lunar eclipse also appeared in Asia, Europe, and Africa along with India. The eclipse will provide a unique opportunity to study the sun, Earth, moon and their interaction because of the eclipse's long path over land coast to coast.

The Massena Public Library is participating in a NASA program to observe the first total solar eclipse that has been viewable in the contiguous United States in 38 years. That's because the moon doesn't quite orbit the Earth at the same angle that we orbit the sun - it's a few degrees tilted, like a sagging belt. "These glasses will block out 99.99 percent of the sun's light so you can safely view the eclipse".
