This phenomenon can be seen on the South coast of Australia, Tasmania and parts of Antarctica. As they have predicted that only a few people are there to see this eclipse. TimeAndDate.com is hosting a live stream beginning at 2 p.m. EDT (18:00 UTC) that will feature views of the "blood moon". Solar eclipse will be in India at 1:30 in July. This happens when the moon passes through the Earth's dark shadow called the umbra.

THE longest eclipse of the century is happening this month.

In fact, the greatest eclipse - where only about one-third of the sun's diameter will be eclipsed by the passing new moon - will occur on Antarctica, near Peterson Bank, where an emperor penguin colony now exists (although it may not in the future; the colony's exact location continually changes, due to changing ice conditions).

Total solar eclipses happen because the Sun's diameter is 400 times wider than the Moon's, but it is also 400 times farther away.

Ivan Perisic levelled with a calm effort from the edge of the penalty area, but he would turn from hero to villain. I can't make comparisons, I can't talk to them about players from 20 years ago or even 10 years ago.

On July 27, another celestial event ' Blood Moon' would be occurred. This month's lunar eclipse is particularly long because of the moon's position as it slips into Earth's shadow.

The eclipse will be clearly visible in several countries of the world including Pakistan, Canada, United States, India, Bangladesh and Europe.

The safest way to witness a solar eclipse is with special filter-protected glasses and telescopes, or by looking indirectly using an eclipse viewer.

Solar eclipse occurs when the rays from the sun are blocked from reaching the surface of the earth by the moon while lunar eclipse on the other hand is when the rays from the sun are blocked from reaching the surface of the moon by the other. On July 31, Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun will be 57.6 million km from Earth, the closest it has been since 2003. During a full eclipse, the shadow of the Moon can be as wide as 80 km wide. So, a group of Ukrainian researchers found that during a total solar Eclipse on 11 August 1999 in Bulgaria, there was a decrease in air temperature by 6 to 7 degrees Celsius. The eclipse is expected to stay for around one hour and four minutes. Also, the Eclipse will be able to see explorers in the Northern part of Antarctica.
