All the excitement of sky watchers comes to an end after Thursday’s weather forecast.
The Thursday’s lunar eclipse will turn the ordinary blue sky into a remarkable red and orange one. This kind of lunar eclipses generally occurs when the moon passes through the sun and leaves just a part of it uncovered.
Recently, weather Forecast informed that the entire sky would be cloudy on Thursday. It signifies that the clouds will block the sight of the most awaited Lunar eclipse on Thursday.
Jim Todd, Science instructor notified that the clouds would be relatively darker than the entire eclipse.
Therefore, people would not be able to view the amazing partial lunar eclipse of Thursday. Usually, people require 90 to 95 percent coverage of the sun in order to witness the breathtaking sight. Unfortunately, in this eclipse the moon will merely cover 61 percent of the sun.
Moreover, Tim emphasizes upon the safety of the eyes while taking a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. People who still wish to have a look of this astonishing sunset should take some precautions to prevent any permanent damage to their eyes.
Tim stated numerous ways to observe a partial eclipse safely. One of the most basic is never to look at the sun with naked eyes. The bright sun rays emit dangerous ultraviolet rays that can affect your retina within seconds.
Furthermore, NASA declared 3:30 as the particular time when the eclipse will reach to its maximum almost at the time of sunset.
However, NASA intends to show the live telecast of this eclipse on the internet.
