On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be in the path of a solar eclipse, which occurs when the sunlight reaching Earth is blocked by the moon.

Lunar eclipse (Moon Eclipse 2017 In India) partially began on Monday night at 10:55 pm and was last for about two hours.

The last time a similar event occurred in Taiwan was on April 4, 2015, when a total lunar eclipse took place, Hu said, adding that there will be another blood moon on January 31 next year.

"There's no place else in the solar system, where you could see a total solar eclipse the way you can from the Earth", said Darlene Smalley, the DuPont Planetarium Program Director.

The duration of the total eclipse will be five hours and one minute, while the duration of partial phase of lunar eclipse will be one hour and fifty five minutes.

Woodard-Latin wants everyone to experience the total solar eclipse safely, so they will be passing out about 60 special viewing glasses on the day of the eclipse and help people make cereal box pinhole projectors.

"We're going to be looking at this event with unprecedented eyes", said Alex Young, a solar physicist who is coordinating NASA's education and public outreach.

This time the Earth was in the middle of the moon and sun, with the Earth casting a shadow on the moon, the Daily Mail reported. "But yes, it's a celestial event, which can happen on any Full Moon whenever the Earth moves in between the Moon and the Sun", said Scientific Officer at SPACE, Mila Mitra.

The eclipse will begin to be visible in France around sunset, and will progress from 19h23 to 21h18.

"Since we're in the range of the eclipse, we thought we were in a position to do teaching and ministry for families", Grand Oaks manager Don Boyer told The Pathway, adding that he hopes the event inaugurates an annual back-to-school retreat for families at the campground. The last total eclipse visible anywhere in the continental United States occurred in 1979. The moon was also known as the Full Red Moon, the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon.

"They actually happen a couple of times a year". 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.
