Total SOLAR ECLIPSE- Monday 21st August 2017 (astronomy data & astrology charts & Eclipse Magic book offer)

We’ve already had the partial Lunar Eclipse a week and a half ago, and the counterpart ..  the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE occurs on this coming monday 21st August 2017.  (Eclipses always occur in pairs, separated by 2 weeks, and there are on average 2 pairs every year..).

I’ve downloaded the detailed Eclipse-diagram  from NASA website (Eclipse diagram/data (c) Fred Espenak – link at the bottom).

Total Solar Eclipse (21st August 2017) Details:

How long is this Eclipse?

Important point to remember is that, at any one location on the Earth, the actual Solar Eclipse is only visible for few minutes at most.   BUT it will be seen at different parts of the world at various times..  and at each part ..for slightly different duration.

Greatest Eclipse and its duration:

This is when the largest amount of the Sun is covered by the Moon..  and  takes place at 18:25 hrs  (Universal Time= GMT), and will be visible for 2min40sec, from a point in USA (Lat=26’58N.  Long=87’40 W).

Penumbral start & end of Eclipse:

There are two types of shadows formed by the Moon when it comes in front of the Sun..  ie the shadow that Earth Passes through.  Umbral shadow is the darkest part, where from under it, we see nothing of the Sun.  Penumbral shadow is a more lighter part, and we will see the Sun through it..

  • P1 : The Penumbral part of the eclipse will be first visible at  15:46 hrs   UT  (seen from pacific ocean at Sunrise).
  • P4:  The penumbral part of the Eclipse will be last visible at 21:04 hrs UT (seen from South America – before night falls locally there)

The Umbral  Eclipse data:

This is when the Sun is actually visibly blocked by a dark disc (Moon coming between us and the Sun).  In scientific  notations, we give this 4 sets of readings..  when it first starts (first contact/ start of Umbral Eclipse; 2nd contact;  when Eclipse begins to end; when final umbral eclipse fully ends.

  • U1 :  16:48 hrs UT
  • U2 :  16:49 hrs UT
  • Greatest Eclipse :  18:25 hrs UT
  • U3 :  20:01 hrs UT
  • U4 :  20:02 hrs UT

 NASA diagrams created/provided  by Fred Espanak, where all this data has been taken from:

Note:  The small dot at the centre is the exact location where the Total Eclipse can be seen at a particular time (Universal Time = GMT).   The larger grey/blue area shows the area from which penumbral eclipse can be seen at any particular time.  The dark sections of the Earth (on left and right) show the night time for those places.

Time: Remember all times are UT (Universal Time which is equivalent to Greenwich mean time).  so you must work out local time.  For example the dot first appears to the West of USA  (in Pacific Ocean area)  around 17:00hrs GMT..  This is actually sun-rise/ morning time for those who first see the Eclipse (if they were in the Pacific Ocean).

Visibility data for UK:

From these diagrams, you can ascertain that for us in United Kingdom, about 10% of this Eclipse will be visible around 19:00hrs GMT.

Astrology Charts & graphics for Solar & Lunar Eclipses of April & May 2013

It’s a Triple Eclipse period!  Normally Eclipses occur in pairs..  one Solar and one lunar…but once in a while, there may be a third one.. (it’s to do with the orbits, geometry and the lunar nodes.. )

Well, we have a Full Moon (lunar) partial eclipse on 25th April 2013, then a Solar eclipse on 10th May 2013, and another Full Moon (penumbral lunar) Eclipse on 25th May’13.

I’ve created Astrology charts for all 3 of them, so you can see where the planets will be on those specific days..

I’ll be writing more on how and who are affected by these Eclipses, and if you do know your own birth chart / planetary positions, – how you can work out if any parts of your life will be severely affected!!

For now, here are the charts..   Come back and check in a few days..  or subscribe to my blog to keep up to date 🙂
