Partial Lunar Eclipse – 7th August 2017 – what you’ll see & where

Hi all.. getting some advance info out for the next Lunar Eclipse (due in August 2017).  Here’s some graphics, based on NASA’s data.

useful astronomical data (from NASA):

  • Penumbral Eclipse duration : from 16:50hrs to 21:50hrs (BST).
  • Umbral eclipse duration: 18:22hrs to 20:18hrs (BST).
  • Greatest Eclipse is at 19:20hrs BST.
  • Ecliptic conjunction : 19:11hrs BST.

The following is a world map showing  where this Partial Lunar Eclipse can be seen from (map by Fred Espenak of NASA).   Some parts of the world will see all of it.  Others will see only parts of it …either during their local moon-rise or moon-set moments.  It’s shown in the map.

Explanations about P1, P4, U1, U4 etc  (scientific terms):

The moment when an eclipse starts/  ends are given special names / tags in astronomy..   (they are moments of time..  ie Universal time/  GMT etc)…  and they are labelled P1, P2, P3, P3  for penumbral shadow sections of the eclipse, and U1, U2, U3, U4 for Umbral shadow parts of the Eclipse.

P1 is when Moon starts to enter the Penumbral shadow of the Earth.  Moon is seen as a reddish colour (aka The Blood moon)…but still fully visible.

U1 is when Moon further enters the darker Umbral shadow of the Earth..  This is where part of the moon will actually go black.. (This one is a partial Lunar Eclipse…So only a part of the full moon will disappear).

U4 is the moment when the moon fully comes out of any Umbral (dark) shadow of the Earth…but some parts of the moon will still be in the lighter penumbral shadow so will be seen as reddish.

P4 is the moment when the moon fully comes out of penumbral shadow..ie ..final contact…  and end of the eclipse!

(note: Sometimes   the eclipse is only Penumbral..  so the data will be just P1, P2, P3, and P4).

Occultation of Jupiter by Full Moon – NOW!

Full moon in Gemini, about to pass over Jupiter (Lunar Occultation of Jupiter)
Taken 28th Nov’12 – about 23.00hrs gmt.
Photo (c)Mani Navasothy.

I love winter – skies are almost clearer, and the stars and planet-watch can begin again (okay so a bit cold..but wrap up warm and have a flask of coffee with ya..). And today is a brilliant one..!

Lunar Occultation of a planet is when the moon covers over a planet that is behind it.

This is no different to a Solar Eclipse, when the (new) moon covers the Sun behind it..

Interestingly, earlier today we had a penumbral lunar eclipse (full moon in gemini was partially covered by the shadow of the earth..) It took place at 14:34hrs gmt and could not been seen in UK..  but this night…(well, 29th Nov as it will be past midnight)..  the full moon moves over the planet Jupiter at about 01:04hrs gmt.

I have just been in the garden taking photos by an ordinary digital camera, and as you can see, the full moon is edging closer to the planet Jupiter (that’s the white spot on the left of the full moon!)

Those of you doing eclipse magical work..  this day is a spectacular double whammy – because not only do you get a Lunar Eclipse, but now a `Jupiter eclipse’

get out there now..  as you have time to look at it.. 🙂

The clouds are moving fast.. so even if it’s cloudy, keep watching… 🙂

Good luck

-Mani Navasothy

ps. hey, the whole thing `looks’ like it’s happening right above my room 🙂 That’s my room lights you see in the photo.

pps. There is one more Lunar Occultation of Jupiter left for this year..and it takes place on 26th December’12-    exactly 2 days before a cancer-full moon!  I bet Christmas is going to be  a very jovial, bubbly wonderful time.. !

Fears & Phobias of Eclipses

As we head towards an annular Solar Eclipse on 20th May, and then a lunar eclipse on the 4th of June, 2012, I am aware that there are many people in the world – of certain religions – for whom this is a time of  fear and trepidation!

For example, Hindu scriptures of ancient times, advise people not to eat or drink anything for the actual duration of any eclipses.  In the case of Solar eclipses, this is usually few minutes, but I remember from my own (Hindu) childhood days back in Sri Lanka, how long the lunar eclipses used to take, and how my grandmother used to say not to eat anything.

In fact I recall that we were not even allowed to look at a Lunar eclipse at night – directly- and had to look at its reflection in a bowl of water!  Yes, Solar eclipses should never be looked upon with naked eyes ) nothing short of high strength welders glass is safe!). That’s the Science. But not even scientists worry about lunar eclipses damaging people’s eye sights!

Then there’s the other fact that quite often, Indian astrologers (and others) have predicted violence and all sorts of turmoil across the world after eclipses. (They did for the triple eclipses in same month, last year. But no such major world unrest came to pass, apart from the usual middle-eastern wars, and a number of long term dictators or terrorist leaders being `captured, killed or taken down’!

It’s well known that in certain cultures, pregnant women are advised to stay indoors and avoid looking at Eclipses, to prevent their babies developing defects. Such cultures seem to advise prayers, fasting and ritual bathing, particularly in holy rivers.

Recently, this month, in the United Kingdom, Channel 4 television broadcast  – as part of their `Body Shock’ series – the plight of a 6 year old Colombia boy called Deider, who had a mole on his back so large that it was like a `shell’ and he was nick-named the `Turtle boy’ by some prejudiced people of his community. Those people had also held the belief that during pregnancy, Deider’s mother had one day gone to get the washing from the cloths line, and happen to have accidentally witnessed a full solar eclipse – which according to her culture’s beliefs would result in exposed mothers giving birth to disfigured babies. (Good news is various medical surgeons have operated on the boy and removed the large mole, so he now leads a normal life).

I do not know if my mother was exposed to Eclipse light when she was pregnant with me. But I do remember that when I was young, my father took me out to show me a solar eclipse, by holding some strong filters (film negatives).  This is not sufficient at all – by the way, and never should be tried !  The same one, we watched via a reflection being projected on to an inside wall.

In one of his books.  the late Issac Assimov – a brilliant Science-fiction writer- write a story called `Nightfall’  and later expanded it as a full novel. It depicts an alternate human society in another planet, where they had not witnessed a Solar Eclipse for centuries. There are religious classes and scientists amongst them, and the novel explores the panic, preparations and unravelling of a whole society, when they face their first ever eclipse! It was very much an end of the world scenario. (which is something we ourselves supposedly face at the end of 2012! That’s another matter).
In my view, Hindu culture – one of the oldest religions of the world (12,000 yrs or more) – does have very good vedic astrological techniques that seem to be highly accurate in its predictive powers. So there may well be some truth in avoiding drinking or eating food, especially when it says Eclipse is better for cleansing, forgiving, prayers and meditative work. As far as science is concerned, there is absolutely no reason why eclipses – solar or lunar – should be feared by anyone!  Our Sun & Moon have been getting eclipsed several times, every year, for as long as they have been in existence. I imagine a sudden blockage of the Sun in the middle of the day would alarm any primitive life form – birds, animals and members of neolithic tribes. For Sun worshiping cultures like the ancient Aztecs & Mayas of the South americas, eclipses would have had terrible and intense meanings. But I also imagine they would have worked out the stellar patterns and learnt to forecast when it would occur.

 

I have been drawn to Eclipses, and been doing all sorts of magical works during and based on eclipses – for a good 15 years now. I personally see them as comic accelerators, and course-correctors. A recent magical work with my partner during an eclipse started to produce such noticeable behavioural changes between us, that any lingering doubts as to the power of eclipses is far gone- from my mind. Which was one reason I began to write it all in a book, `Eclipse Magic’.

As far as fears and phobias are concerned – on eclipses – it had never really occurred to me to fear them.
