Solar - sun and Lunar - moon Eclipses
Two partial solar eclipses and one total lunar eclipse due

May be a BLOOD RED moon

http://news.nationalgeographic.co...longest-darkest-red-space-science

May 30, 2011
Over the next month, the world will experience 3 eclipses:
two partial solar eclipses a month apart and one total lunar eclipse exactly in between, and it all starts with a so-called "midnight" eclipse of the sun.

A solar eclipse at midnight?  How is such a thing possible?
It can happen near midsummer in the high Arctic, the land of the midnight sun.
And it will happen this week on June 1 and 2, visible in the northernmost reaches of North America, Europe, and Asia.
These two solar eclipse sky maps available here detail what observers could see during some of the upcoming eclipses of the sun and moon in June.

Midnight solar eclipse of June 2
The eclipse begins on Thursday, June 2, at dawn in northern China and Siberia, then moves across the Arctic,
crossing the International Date Line and ending in the early evening of Wednesday, June 1, in northeastern Canada.

That’s right: The eclipse begins on Thursday and ends on Wednesday because of the International Date Line.
Because observers in northern Russia and Scandinavia will be observing it over the North Pole, they will actually see it in what is, for them, the middle of the night of June 1 and 2.

Solar eclipse no one will see on July 1
Exactly a month later, on Friday, July 1, an equally bizarre eclipse will occur in the Antarctic.

Because this is the southern winter, the sun will be below the horizon for almost all of Antarctica, except for a small uninhabited stretch of coast due south of Madagascar.
The only place the eclipse will clear the horizon will be in a small area of the Southern Ocean, far to the south of South Africa.  
Chances are that this eclipse will be witnessed only by penguins and sea birds.

Lunar eclipse of June 15
Exactly halfway in between these two partial solar eclipses, there will be a total eclipse of the moon on Wednesday, June 15.

The eclipse will be visible for millions of people in Africa, the Middle East and southwestern Asia.
It will be visible as the moon rises in the early evening in South America and Europe, and as the moon sets before dawn in eastern Asia and Australia.
Unfortunately, it will not be visible anywhere at all in North America.

Lunar Eclipse Saturday to Appear Red?  
June 25, 2010  National Geographic News
A partial eclipse of the full moon tomorrow may get an added boost of red color from an Iceland volcano's ash, astronomers say.

Earth's shadow will be cast across half of the moon's surface over the course of the three-hour event, which begins 3:17 a.m. PDT on June 26. The lunar eclipse will be seen throughout most of the Americas, Australia, and Asia, astronomers say.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth, and moon align. Unlike during total lunar eclipses, when the entire moon is engulfed in Earth's darkest shadow, the moon never completely dims during a partial lunar eclipse. (Take a quiz on moon mysteries and myths.)

"The dark part of the Earth's shadow will clip the moon, and you will see the part that lies within it will get much darker than the rest," said Geza Gyuk, astronomer at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Illinois.
"Skywatchers will see the moon decrease in brightness and maybe even a change [in] color."

The first stages of the eclipse will be visible across central and western sections of the North American continent at dawn. Eastern parts of the continent will not see the event. For those in the Pacific Basin and Asia, the eclipse will occur late Saturday night.

Skywatchers in the U.S. central and mountain time zones will catch most of the eclipse, while those within the Pacific time zone will see it in its entirety until the moon exits the shadow completely at 6:00 am PDT.

Volcano Ash May Add Flash to Sky Show
The deepest and most interesting part of the eclipse—when Earth's shadow will fall on 54 percent of the moon's disk—occurs at 4:38 am PDT.
At this point, when the moon is at its darkest, its face may turn red from ash thrown into the upper atmosphere by recent eruptions of the Iceland volcano Eyjafjallajokull. (See pictures of lava exploding from the Iceland volcano's ice cap.)

During the height of the eclipse, sunlight refracting off the scattered dust in Earth's atmosphere is projected onto the moon—the same effect that's in play during red sunsets.
"While I haven't heard of reports of particularly fantastic sunsets occurring because of the Icelandic volcano," Gyuk said, "it might be quite pretty if the ash in the air causes an extra reddening of the light reaching the moon."
http://news.nationalgeographic.co...e-full-moon-june-26-space-science

The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
Joel 2:31      http://niv.scripturetext.com/joel/2.htm

I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair,
and the whole moon became like blood;
Revelation 6:12        http://nasb.scripturetext.com/revelation/6.htm


Rare Total Lunar Eclipse for USA coincides with solstice
This is in the bible prophecy section as it could have prophetic significance.
This may also contribute to the weather and earthquakes from Dec. 15 to 25.

Rare 'Midnight' Partial Solar Eclipse Amazes Northern Skywatchers
June  2, 2011  
 A  midnight partial eclipse of the sun that, by a fluke of timing, began a day later than it ended provided spectacular views for skywatchers around the world lucky enough to catch the rare spectacle.
The solar eclipse began early June 2 over northeast Asia, but actually ended Wednesday night because its narrow path of visibility — where skywatchers could see the event — crossed the International Date Line. For amateur and professional astronomers who caught the eclipse, the view was spectacular.

"Beautiful and impressive eclipse of midnight sun," said Knut Joergen Roed Oedegaard, an astrophysicist at the Norwegian Centre for Science Education in Oslo, Norway.
"This night northern Scandinavia witnessed the deepest eclipse of the midnight sun since 1985."
Oedegaard told SPACE.com that it will be decades before a similar eclipse occurs over the region.
"Not until 2084 will a more impressive solar eclipse take place in the middle of the night," Oedegaard said in an email. "The rare and exotic phenomenon became very beautiful indeed."

Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes between the sun and the Earth during its "new phase" and appears to block the sun when seen from the ground.
When the moon and sun align perfectly a total solar eclipse occurs, which completely covers the sun. Other times, however, the moon only covers a portion of the sun to create a partial solar eclipse.

This week's partial solar eclipse was actually the second eclipse of the sun of 2011 (the first was on Jan. 4). Another partial eclipse of the sun will occur on July 1.
But it was the timing of this so-called "midnight" eclipse that attracted attention in Norway and elsewhere.
Oedegaard organized an effort to broadcast different views of the eclipse live on the Internet in order to share the rare event.
"During the eclipse it was substantially darker than normal," Oedegaard said. "It was a silvery grey light, while the sky around the sun was yellow."

In Tromso, Norway, the weather nearly spoiled the eclipse for skywatcher Bernt Olsen. Clouds and rain showers obscured the beginning of the eclipse.
"This was an rare and a seldom event even up here north, where the nights are bright and a midnight sun eclipse can occur," Olsen told SPACE.com in an email.
Olsen said the weather cleared just in time for the peak of the eclipse, when the moon appeared about 58 percent covered.
He posted several views of the eclipse to a photo sharing website and the skywatching site Spaceweather.com.

In Bratsk, Russia, skywatcher Svetlana Kulkova watched the partial solar eclipse as dawn broke on June 2.
Kulkova said the event started out like a normal eclipse, except that "it coincided with the Bratsk sunrise, making it possible to get beautiful pictures."
Smoke from a nearby forest fire and the morning mist added an ethereal feeling to the view, added Kulkova, who also posted images online.

June's partial solar eclipse is the first of three solar and lunar eclipses occurring within 30 days.
On June 15, a total lunar eclipse will occur and be visible to millions of skywatchers around the world except in North America, where the event won't be visible at all.[2011 Solar and Lunar Eclipse Skywatching Guide]
The eclipse trio ends with a July 1 partial solar eclipse over the southern hemisphere, but this eclipse will be visible only from a small area of the southern ocean, far to the south of South Africa.

Very long total lunar eclipse coming Wednesday Jun 15, 2011
Next time there will be one this exceptional is in seven years
 
This month's full moon will pass almost directly through the center of Earth's shadow on Wednesday in what will be an unusually long total eclipse of the moon.

The lunar eclipse will occur just two weeks after a June 1 partial solar eclipse, when the moon blocked part of the sun as viewed from Arctic regions. The eclipse won't be visible from North America due to its timing, which places the event in the daylight hours when the moon is behind the local horizon.

But the Eastern Hemisphere of Earth will be facing the moon during the eclipse. This hemisphere, centered on a spot in the Indian Ocean to the east of the island nation of Madagascar, will have a ringside seat for this event. [ Video: Inside the June 15 Total Lunar Eclipse ]

Since the Earth rotates during the several hours of the eclipse, more than a hemisphere sees stages of it.
For all of the places mentioned below, next week's lunar eclipse will be taking place during the morning early hours of Thursday as they are west of the International Date Line.

For moon-gazers in Russia's Sakhalin Island, moonset virtually coincides with the moon's entry into the umbra (1823 GMT). The beginning of penumbral eclipse starts about an hour earlier, before the moon sets, but this is only a theoretical matter since the outer part of the penumbra (the Earth's shadow) is imperceptible even high in the sky. [ Blood Moon: Photos of 2010 Total Lunar Eclipse ]

Skywatchers in Central Siberia, eastern Mongolia, northeast China, and most of Japan, Korea, New Guinea, eastern Australia and New Zealand will see the moon entering the darker shadow, called the umbra. But only as it's going down in the west-southwest at the end of the night does the moon becomes totally eclipsed (at 1922 UT).

Longest Lunar Eclipse in 11 Years
June 15, 2011
June total eclipse of the Moon
This event favors those in Africa, Asia, and Australia
The first lunar eclipse of 2011 occurs June 15. The timing and the placement of the Moon in its orbit does not favor the Western Hemisphere, however.
Skywatchers can see the entire event from the eastern half of Africa, the Middle East, central Asia, and western Australia.
At mid-eclipse, the Moon will lie near the zenith for observers situated in Réunion or Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

Observers throughout Europe will miss the early stages of the eclipse because they occur before moonrise.
But except for northern Scotland and northern Scandinavia, Europeans with clear skies will see totality (when the Moon lies completely within Earth’s umbra).

Likewise, eastern Asia, eastern Australia, and New Zealand will miss the last stages of eclipse because they occur after moonset, but, like those in Europe, most inhabitants will see the total phase.
Observers in eastern Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina also will witness totality. Unfortunately, none of the eclipse will be visible from North America.

Solar Eclipse Darkens Sun Over Southern Hemisphere
25 Nov 2011
A partial solar eclipse was visible over parts of the southern hemisphere today (Nov. 25), as the moon passed between Earth and the sun for the fourth and final time this year.

The eclipse was visible in southern South Africa, Antarctica, Tasmania, and most of New Zealand, according to NASA scientists. At greatest eclipse, as the moon orbited between the sun and Earth, 90.5 percent of the sun's diameter was covered from the location closest to the axis of Earth's shadow, which is a point in the Bellingshausen Sea on the west side of the Antarctic Peninsula.
While majority of the Earth was not able to view today's partial solar eclipse, the event was visible in pockets of southern South Africa, across the Antarctic continent, Tasmania and portions of New Zealand's South Island.

Lunar Eclipse, Watch Moon Disappear
December  9-10,  2011  
Look in the western sky Saturday morning before dawn, and if the weather is clear and you're in the right place, you will be rewarded with the last lunar eclipse of 2011.
For just under an hour, the disk of the full moon will almost disappear, turning a dark, rusty red.
The catch for Americans is that you'll miss almost everything unless you're west of the Mississippi.
Totality, when the moon is completely consumed by Earth's shadow -- begins at 6:06 a.m. Pacific time Saturday, and ends at 6:57 a.m. Even on the Pacific coast, dawn will start to brighten the sky before the eclipse is over.

Still, if you happen to be up, a lunar eclipse can be a quiet, refreshing experience. Depending on the atmospheric conditions where you are, the moon may turn a rich orange, or it may become hard to pick out in the sky. The reddish hue comes from sunlight that is bent by Earth's atmosphere. As happens during a vivid sunrise or sunset, most colors other than red are absorbed by the air.

From the Rocky Mountain states or the West Coast, the moon may seem larger than usual, since it will loom close to the western horizon, creating a common optical illusion, since you'll have trees or buildings to which you can compare it.

There was a Lunar eclipse when Christ died.
Watch the story of the Bethlehem Star when Christ was born.
Fascinating website  ... I just watched the video.

Was the Star of Bethlehem a real astronomical event?
There was a Lunar eclipse when Christ died.
Watch the story of the Bethlehem Star when Christ was born.
Fascinating video and website  ... I just watched the video.
During the video I thot - this goes with what Augusto Perez said.  
Rick Larson is the producer of the film where Augusto took his information.

This was not 'a star' but a conjunction of several planets which indicated a King had been born.  
This 'star' was positioned in the constellation Leo / Lion which represents the tribe of Judah, Israel.

Research by Rick Larson, video also by Larson, very powerful

The Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star revealed the birth of Yeshua, Messiah Jesus the Christ to the magi, or "wise men", and later led them to Bethlehem.
The star appears in the nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew, where magi "from the east" are inspired by the star to travel to Jerusalem.
There they meet King Herod of Judea, and ask where the king of the Jews had been born.
Herod, following a verse from the Book of Micah interpreted as a prophecy, directs them to Bethlehem, a nearby village.

Solar eclipse visible from national parks
May 15, 2012
 When the sun vanishes behind the moon for the first time over the United States in this century, what better place to enjoy the view than from one of the 154 national parks that stand in its path?
Astronomy lovers in the United States will be treated to a partial disappearance of the sun behind the moon this Sunday (May 20). Only the Eastern Seaboard will be totally exempt. The eclipse will occur in the late afternoon or early evening of May 20 throughout North America, and May 21 for observers in Asia.

Over the course of the solar eclipse, the sun won't vanish completely, but will remain as a ring around the moon for what is known as an annular eclipse. When the eclipse occurs, the moon will be near its most distant point from Earth, making it appear smaller in the sky and thus unable to block the entire sun. But it will still be a stunning sight.

Thirty-three national parks will see the full effect of the moon's interference. Many western parks will be offering an array of events for their guests, ranging from placing telescopes out for viewing up to a full-scale astronomy festival.
"We're lucky that so many parks happen to lie within the path of the annular eclipse," Grand Canyon park ranger Marker Marshall told OurAmazingPlanet.
 
The Grand Canyon park staff, along with the help of the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association, will be setting up solar telescopes and helping people safely view the eclipse. NASA scientists will be present to talk about the eclipse, as well as recent lunar findings. They will also have eclipse glasses for sale and will demonstrate how to use binoculars to safely set up a projection of the eclipse on a piece of paper. After the eclipse, the park will host a star party. [Top 10 Most Visited National Parks]

Marshall noted that, like other national parks, the Grand Canyon boasts signs warning people not to look directly at the sun, or to view the sun through telescopes, binoculars or cameras without a solar filter. Doing so will damage your eyes.

At Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, the annual Astronomy Festival has been moved to coincide with eclipse weekend. Great Basin National Park in Nevada will hold a pre-eclipse party Saturday night with a presentation by an actor playing Galileo, and a special program on Sunday. Several parks will instruct guests on how to make a pinhole viewer of their own to safely observe the eclipse. Several other parks are receiving assistance from their local amateur astronomy clubs to help the public safely watch the show.

Visitors should bring flashlights and jackets, especially if they plan to stay after the eclipse concludes.
"People come to parks to enjoy a dark night sky, and see things like the Milky Way," Marshall said.
"We can really facilitate people seeing even daytime events," she added.
 
But Marshall warns that, while the eclipse will make an interesting image, it won't necessarily make a great photograph.
Aiming a camera at the eclipse unprotected could damage it. Hopeful photographers need to add a solar filter to their setup, which will wash out the view of the landscape.

"The casual photographer won't be able to get a photo of the eclipse over the canyon," she said.
Instead, she urges people to enjoy the image captured in their memory.

And there will be plenty of memories made. According to Marshall, all of the campgrounds and hotels around the Grand Canyon that take reservations are booked. Though the first-come, first-serve campgrounds are still available, she anticipates that they, too, will fill quickly, leaving hopeful visitors with a drive of more than an hour to the nearest hotel.

Although only a handful of western parks will receive the full effect of the eclipse, another 125 parks lay along the path of the partial eclipse, where they will provide a stunning view to those not fortunate enough to see the complete show. From Alaska to Minnesota, national parks will catch a partial eclipse or a partial view.
"Astronomy generally is the kind of thing people look for in national parks, so we're glad to help people celebrate it here," Marshall said.

Solar eclipse this weekend
May 16, 2012 By Dr. Tony Phillips
On Sunday, May 20th, the Moon will pass in front of the sun, transforming sunbeams across the Pacific side of Earth into fat crescents and thin rings of light.
It's an annular solar eclipse, in which the Moon will cover as much as 94% of the sun. Hundreds of millions of people will be able to witness the event. The eclipse zone stretches from southeast Asia across the Pacific Ocean to western parts of North America:

In the United States, the eclipse begins around 5:30 pm PDT. For the next two hours, a Moon-shaped portion of the sun will go into hiding. Greatest coverage occurs around 6:30 pm PDT
Because some of the sun is always exposed during the eclipse, ambient daylight won't seem much different than usual. Instead, the event will reveal itself in the shadows. Look on the ground beneath leafy trees  for crescent-shaped sunbeams and rings of light.

Near the center-line of the eclipse, observers will experience something special: the "ring of fire." As the Moon crosses the sun dead-center, a circular strip or annulus of sunlight will completely surround the dark lunar disk. Visually, the sun has a big black hole in the middle.

The "path of annularity" where this occurs is only about 200 miles wide, but it stretches almost halfway around the world passing many population centers en route: Tokyo, Japan; Medford, Oregon; Chico, California; Reno, Nevada; Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Lubbock, Texas. In those locations the ring of fire phenomenon will be visible for as much as 4 and a half minutes.

Millions look skyward as rare eclipse crosses Asia
May 20, 2012
TOKYO (AP) — Millions of Asians watched as a rare "ring of fire" eclipse crossed their skies early Monday.
The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was visible to wide areas across the continent. It will move across the Pacific and also be seen in parts of the western United States.

In Japan, "eclipse tours" were arranged at schools and parks, on pleasure boats and even private airplanes. Similar events were held in China and Taiwan as well, with skywatchers warned to protect their eyes.
The eclipse was broadcast live on TV in Tokyo, where such an eclipse hasn't been visible since 1839. Japanese TV crews watched from the top of Mount Fuji and even staked out a zoo south of Tokyo to capture the reaction of the chimpanzees — who didn't seem to notice.

Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun, NE Australia
Nov. 8, 2012
 People from around the world are converging on the coast of northeast Australia.  The attraction isn't the Great Barrier Reef, just offshore, or the surrounding rain forests full of wildlife and exotic plants. They're going to see a total eclipse of the sun.
On the morning of Nov. 14th (Australia time), about an hour after sunrise, the Moon will pass directly in front of the sun. Residents and visitors of the city of Cairns, also known as the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, will enjoy an early morning eclipse lasting 2 minutes with the sun only 14 degrees above the eastern horizon.

NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak has a rating scheme for natural wonders.  "On a scale of 1 to 10," he says, "total eclipses are a million."  Even the reef itself will be momentarily forgotten by onlookers as the Moon's cool shadow sweeps across the beach and the ghostly tendrils of the solar corona surround the black lunar disk.
http://science1.nasa.gov/science-...e-at-nasa/2012/07nov_totaleclipse


Nov. 8, 2012
After a gap of more than two years, a total eclipse of the sun will be visible this week from northeastern Australia. Residents and visitors in Cairns in Queensland will see the moon completely cover the sun for two minutes in the eastern sky shortly after local sunrise.
Australia's total solar eclipse this week will occur at sunrise on Wednesday, Nov. 14 local time, though it will still be Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 13) for observers in North America tracking the event through webcasts.

This solar eclipse Down Under is followed by two more solar events in 2013 — an annular, or "ring of fire," eclipse on May 10, which can be viewed from northern Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Gilbert Islands, and a special “hybrid” eclipse (a combination of annular and total solar eclipse) on Nov. 3, which will be visible from the African nations of Gabon, Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Somalia.

Total Solar Eclipse Today is Last Until 2015
November 13, 2012
The skies over a slice of northern Australia will darken for a few minutes today as the planet experiences its first total solar eclipse in more than two years.
Today's total solar eclipse — the first since July 2010 and the last until March 2015 — begins at 3:35 p.m. EST (2035 GMT) today, which corresponds to shortly after dawn Wednesday (Nov. 14) local time in Australia. Weather permitting, will be visible from slivers of the continent's Northern Territory and state of Queensland, as well as a large, empty stretch of the Pacific Ocean.

More than 50,000 spectators are expected to watch the celestial event from Queensland, according to tourism officials. But forecasts of cloudy weather may put a damper on their viewing experience, according to media reports.
Most of the world's population will be far from the eclipse's path. But anyone with access to the Internet can follow the action live, for several organizations will provide free webcasts of the alignment of sun and moon. Two such outfits are Tourism Tropical North Queensland and the Slooh Space Camera, which will begin their broadcasts at 1 p.m. EST (1800 GMT) and 2:30 p.m. EST (1930 GMT) on Tuesday, respectively.
