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:

Total Solar Eclipse 20th August 2017 - NASA diagram by Fred Espenak

Gif animation showing the visibility & times of the Total Solar Eclipse 21st August 2017 (by Fred Espenak of NASA)

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.

Lunar Eclipse 4th April 2015 – Full astronomy, Astrology & Visibility data

Hi all,  there is a Total Lunar Eclipse coming up on 4th April 2015.  (which is two weeks after the total Solar Eclipse of 20/3/15).

Note on Magical works & interpretations: Am adding essential graphics (astronomy data & visibility map) .. Readers will note that I tend to create / present data and graphics that are of practical use, either for observation, or for the purpose of doing your own esoteric/ personal magical work during the times of these eclipses.  (In these cases, I try to avoid giving any/ extensive interpretations, as that `taints’ the reader’s subconscious. Eclipses are powerful enough ..and I have been personally doing `Eclipse Magic’ for so long.. that I prefer to let the magical potential of the eclipses be tuned int by interested readers/ magical practitioners  (Astro-mages, High Magicians and so on..). There are plenty of other blogs/ sites who give extensive interpretations..

Okay, back to this Eclipse…

Effectively, you can start to actually see the Moon beginning to be eclipsed (dark patch shows and and spreads) from 10:15am…and it will end by 1:44pm (Gmt).   Some where in the middle of this (3 hr 29 min period), we get the Total Eclipse of the moon – between 11:57am to 12:02pm (gmt)… for  duration of 4 mins 43sec.

But of course, Moon will be entering the penumbral shadow of the Earth long before it actually becomes noticeable to naked eye (at 9.01am) and it only leaves this penumbral shadow at 4.58pm.  (this part of it is of scientific interest ..and dare I say `magical’ interest only.. as it is not discernable to naked eye..

P1, P2, U1,U2, U3, U4 – Astronomy terms  for Eclipses explained:

P1:First penumbral contact occurs when the Moon first enters Earth’s penumbra,

U1: First umbral contact marks when the Moon is first shadowed by Earth’s darker umbra.

U2: Second umbral contact takes place at the beginning of totality, when the Moon is fully eclipsed by the Earth’s umbra,

U3: Third umbral contact  occurs at totality’s end.

U4: Last umbral contact  marks when the Moon completely leaves Earth’s umbra,

P2: Second penumbral contact  occurs when the Moon leaves the penumbra.

Note:  Partial lunar eclipses do not have U2 and U3 values, since those are reserved for when the Moon fully enters the Earth’s umbra. Rather, contact times for partial lunar eclipse are designated only P1, U1, U4, P2 respectively.

Astrology:  Planetary positions for this Eclipse (at 12:06hrs gmt)

The next set of Eclipses occur later in the year, a partial Solar Eclipse on 13th September’15 (in the sign of Virgo) , and a Total Lunar Eclipse on 28th Sept’15 (in the sign of Aries). I will of course cover full data/ presentations & preparations for those in a few months time.. (let’s live through this one first 🙂
