Stargazers Enjoy Lunar Eclipse Across Parts of Europe and Asia

Total eclipse

A partial lunar eclipse will be observed on Monday night from all across the country.

Partial Lunar Eclipse seen in Kolkata.

Most of East Tennessee will be in the eclipse's path.

Channel your inner science teacher. Eclipses happen when the moon passes through the Earth's shadow and does a sexy peek-a-boo for the earthlings watching it.

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. If you're having a hard time visualizing this, NASA created a video to illustrate the way the moon orbits Earth. The moon is revolving around the earth, which in turn is revolving around the sun.

Experts predict the natural phenomenon will continue for the next 60 million years, until the distance between the moon and the sun will be too vast. It's no myth that staring at the sun during an eclipse can damage your eyes, and it's not exactly obvious why you shouldn't do it. Hence, they appear at about the same sight in the Earth's skies.

NY isn't one of the 14 states in the path of totality, the period of total eclipse when the sun is completely blocked by the moon.

When the sun goes dark August 21 during a total solar eclipse, churches from OR to SC will use the event as an opportunity to illumine their communities with the gospel.

Starting in OR and ending in SC, cities across this cross-country belt expect a surge of historic traffic and, in some cases, a port-a-potty shortage.

The Spotify app is officially available on Xbox One
The new UX with Fluent Design System will give gamers a "new look and feel", further enhancing the various translucency effects. Spotify and Xbox One are both known quantities, so this is largely a case of "two great tastes taste great together (finally)".

Jury expected to be seated soon in Taylor Swift groping case
Swift and Mueller are both expected to testify in the case , along with Mueller's former boss and members of Swift's entourage. The jury will also considered the singer's countersuit, although Swift is only seeking $1 in damages for the unwanted grab.

South Korean prosecutors seek 12 year prison term for Samsung chief
Lee has insisted he played no part in decisions concerning the wider Samsung group and "mostly listened to other executives". Prosecutors are seeing a 10-year sentence for Lee's mentor Choi Gee-sung, a former vice chairman at Samsung Electronics.

Over the next hour and a half, it will cross through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and SC. This eclipse is special for a couple of reasons: (1) It is the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States since 1979 and (2) The last total solar eclipse that had a path of totality stretching across the United States from coast-to-coast occurred in 1918.

-What causes an eclipse to occur?

"Even very dark ones are not safe for looking directly at the sun; they transmit many thousands of times too much sunlight", AAS says.

The lighting will begin to change as if nighttime is occurring in the middle of the day.

"The other moons in the solar system are either too big or too small for that to happen", Smalley told WJBF NewsChannel 6. Both wild and domesticated animals will display habits typically associated with nighttime routines. Once the sun's face starts to reappear, the glasses must go back on.

If you are able to witness totality, take a few seconds during that time to scan the horizon. That could severely hurt your eyes. This program, for customers of all ages, will provide information about eclipses and prepare participants for viewing of the eclipse on August 21. "They'll get to wear cool glasses", Ms. Dunne-Thayer said. He said the glasses will be reserved for those attending an eclipse program at the library. Sunglasses are not safe to view the eclipse.

The eclipse will begin at 9:06 a.m. PDT in Madras, Oregon with totality - the period when the moon is completely blocking the sun - coming about an hour later.

The eclipse will end in Great Falls at 12:57 p.m.
