Sydney stargazers preparing for partial lunar eclipse

On August 21, millions of Americans will be able to view the first total solar eclipse visible in the United States since 1979.

The partial lunar eclipses will be visible throughout most of Asia (including Qatar), Africa, Europe, Australia, Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean, Dr Beshir Marzouk of QCH said. "The peak for northern IL will be 1:20 p.m. on August 21, and we're going to be 80 to 85 percent of moon over the sun so it'll be close to a total solar eclipse". During Monday night's lunar eclipse, it was moving north to south and was shadowed by the Earth on its travels.

Hotels along the 70-mile wide and 3,000-mile-long swath where the solar eclipse will pass through are completely booked and have been for months. According to NASA, these five manufacturers have certified their eclipse glasses and hand-held solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 global standard: American Paper Optics, Baader Planetarium, Rainbow Symphony, Thousand Oaks Optical and TSE 17.

In Wichita, Kansas, eclipse viewing parties are being held by the WSU College of Education on the Corbin Education Center Patio from 12:30-2:30 p.m.

"The moon moves faster than the earth spins". A narrow swath from Texas to ME will see a total solar eclipse.

You should also avoid dark sunglasses, neutral density or polarizing filters made for camera lenses, smoke glass, exposed film, "space blankets", potato chip bags, DVDs and any other materials you may have heard about for viewing solar eclipses. "And the next one will happen in about eight years".

In the 5000 years from 2000 BCE through 3000 CE, there will be 7,718 partial and total eclipses of the Moon. "One does not need a telescope to watch the eclipse, although a good pair of binoculars will enhance the experience", he said. He said the glasses will be reserved for those attending an eclipse program at the library. Lunar eclipses are easier to see than solar eclipses because they are visible from anywhere on Earth with only the conditions that the eclipse occurs at nighttime and the moon has risen and is visible.
