The great American Solar Eclipse is August 21st and many people are preparing to watch.
No matter how much of the eclipse is available, properly viewing it with special glasses it is a must.
The next one we are scheduled to witness in the United Kingdom will be on June 10, 2021, although it will just be a partial eclipse.
The partial lunar eclipse on Monday will last about two hours, from the moment the moon enters the umbra to when it exits, and will be at its darkest around 18:20 Coordinated Universal Time, or 2:20 p.m. "Because it's such a rare and exciting event, we wanted to create an interactive guide that everyone could enjoy".

"SAO was founded in large part to study the sun, and we've been doing so now for more than a century". Never look directly at the sun because it will cause damage to the retina that can be permanent. If you normally wear eyeglasses, put the eclipse glasses over them or your hand-held viewer in front of them.
There will be two chances to see a lunar eclipse in the next two years.

When your child asks, "What is a solar eclipse?" explain that a solar eclipse occurs when the moon is in the new moon phase and travels between Earth and the sun. The eclipse is set to begin around 1:25 p.m. and peak right around 2:45.
If it's cloudy during the solar eclipse, it won't be possible to see the moon covering the sun, but NASA will be streaming the entire path of the eclipse on its website.
"All eclipse-related programming is free", Bain said.
"You can stare at the sun during an eclipse for 10 minutes, and it doesn't hurt".
Our moon may be 400 times smaller than the Sun, but it is also 400 times closer to Earth.
Also, if you're an astrology fan as well as an astronomy fan, you can still bask in the energy of the lunar eclipse if you spend some time under the full moon tonight or have a full moon ritual planned.
