Solar eclipse program in Moulton on Thursday

Solar eclipse program in Moulton on Thursday

This week's partial eclipse is a prelude to the total solar eclipse, which will be visible in North America two weeks later (August 21).

The penumbral part of the lunar eclipse, which is hard to discern, was started at 9:20 pm on Monday night August 7, while the partial phase started at 10:52 pm.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth is between the sun and the moon.

Of course, you've seen plenty of full and new moons that haven't resulted in eclipses.

Will we be able to see the lunar eclipse in Cornwall?

A penumbral eclipse occurs when the moon is obscured by the thinnest parts of Earth's shadow, causing a subtle change in its color that often only the astute sky gazer will notice.




Hawaii experienced a total solar eclipse in 1991.

An annular eclipse occurs where the Moon appears to be smaller than the Sun, and its shadow could not fully cover the edges of the Sun, forming a "ring of fire".

-Where is the best location to see a total eclipse? That means on rare occasions the moon is located between the Earth and the sun, blocking incoming light. This eclipse is visible from the entire India. "When the moon passes through the faint shadow of the earth, penumbral eclipse takes place". It's the first time in 99 years that such an event has hit the United States. None of this will even be visible if it's cloudy, so be sure to stay tuned to the AccuWeather forecast leading up to August 21st as we hope for clear skies and prepare for the astronomical event of a lifetime. If you have a pair of binoculars, they will help magnify the view and will make the red coloration brighter and easier to see.

If you don't want any of that bother you can always watch the livestream of the astrological event.

Southern Denton County is not in line to see the upcoming solar eclipse in totality, but it will certainly notice it. As long as skies aren't too cloudy, skygazers stand a good chance of being able to witness this eclipse as it happens, though it won't be visible in the United States, which is now gearing up for the Great American Eclipse on August 21.
