Eclipse season is upon us this week with the first eclipse of 2013, a brief partial lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse on April 25, 2013 is a shallow one, meaning only a paltry 1.47% of the lunar limb will be immersed in the dark umbra or inner shadow of the Earth. Another term for this sort of alignment is known as a syzygy, a great triple-letter word score in Scrabble!
The eclipse will be visible in its entirety from eastern Europe & Africa across the Middle East eastward to southeast Asia and western Australia. Two eclipse seasons occur each year when the nodal points of the Moon’s orbit intersect the ecliptic while aligned with the position of the Sun and the Earth’s shadow. If the Moon’s orbit was not inclined to our own, we’d get two eclipses per lunation, one solar and one lunar.
The 3 lunar eclipses in 2013 are this week’s partial eclipse on April 25th and two faint penumbral eclipses, one on May 25th and another on October 18th. This eclipse will also set us up for the first solar eclipse of 2013, an annular eclipse crossing NE Australia (in fact crossing the path of last year’s total eclipse near Cairns) and the south Pacific on May 10th. The length of the partial phase of the eclipse is exactly 27 minutes, and the length of the entire eclipse is 4 hours, 7 minutes and 42 seconds. I also remember watching the last eclipse in this series from South Korea on April 15th 1995, a slightly better partial of 11.14%.
An occultation of the bright star Spica occurs just 20 hours prior as seen from South Africa across the southern Atlantic. The +2.8th magnitude star Zubenelgenubi (Alpha Librae) is occulted by the waning gibbous Moon just 15 hours after the eclipse for Australia and the South Pacific.
A penumbral eclipse would offer a good proof of concept test for hunting for transiting exoplanets as well, although to our knowledge, no one has ever attempted this.

It is eclipse season again!  Have you wondered what the big deal is over these (eclipses) celestial events? Any time a sign, a planet, or a house becomes activated (astrologically) it provides us with an opportunity to work with the energies and use it creatively.  Otherwise, we passively allow the energies to work through us – for better or for worse. In a perfect world, where would you be in your life right now?  (Be creative and write down your perfect world). Every sign has its shadow, and the darkness of Sagittarius when hope and possibility is burned out is rather frightening.  However, eclipses provide us with an ability to break through our shadows and create light once again. Take some time on Monday to really analyze your blocks and obstacles.  If your relationship is troubled, why is that?   If you are not in the job that you desire, what action can you take to get back on your path?  If you are suffering through financial concerns, what can you do to improve your situation?
Whether you believe in prayer, candle magic, or the law of attraction, you can use any tool at your disposal to draw your inspiration down.   Take some time on Monday to spend time with yourself and really meditate on actualizing your future.
You can get an eclipse reading of your own by speaking to one of the networks gifted and talent psychics and astrologers.  Whether your questions are about love, career, or finances – our psychic advisors are available 24 hours a day to speak with you.   Why wait for tomorrow’s answers, when you can get them today?

The phase known as New Moon can not actually be seen because the illuminated side of the Moon is then pointed away from Earth. The rest of the phases are familiar to all of us as the Moon cycles through them month after month.

The New Moon phase is uniquely recognized as the beginning of each calendar month just as it is the beginning on the Moon's monthly cycle. An eclipse of the Moon (or lunar eclipse) can only occur at Full Moon, and only if the Moon passes through some portion of Earth's shadow. That shadow is actually composed of two cone-shaped components, one nested inside the other. The outer or penumbral shadow is a zone where the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun's rays from reaching the Moon. In contrast, the inner or umbral shadow is a region where the Earth blocks all direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. These events are quite striking due to the Moon's vibrant red color during the total phase (totality).
Now you might be wondering "If the Moon orbits Earth every 29.5 days and lunar eclipses only occur at Full Moon, then why don't we have an eclipse once a month during Full Moon?". You see, the Moon's orbit around Earth is actually tipped about 5 degrees to Earth's orbit around the Sun. This means that the Moon spends most of the time either above or below the plane of Earth's orbit. And the plane of Earth's orbit around the Sun is important because Earth's shadows lie exactly in the same plane. During Full Moon, our natural satellite usually passes above or below Earth's shadows and misses them entirely. But two to four times each year, the Moon passes through some portion of the Earth's penumbral or umbral shadows and one of the above three types of eclipses occurs. About 35% of all eclipses are of the penumbral type which are very difficult to detect, even with a telescope. While the Moon remains completely within Earth's umbral shadow, indirect sunlight still manages to reach and illuminate it.
However, this sunlight must first pass deep through the Earth's atmosphere which filters out most of the blue colored light.
The remaining light is a deep red or orange in color and is much dimmer than pure white sunlight. Earth's atmosphere also bends or refracts some of this light so that a small fraction of it can reach and illuminate the Moon.
The total phase of a lunar eclipse is so interesting and beautiful precisely because of the filtering and refracting effect of Earth's atmosphere.
If the Earth had no atmosphere, then the Moon would be completely black during a total eclipse. Instead, the Moon can take on a range of colors from dark brown and red to bright orange and yellow. The exact appearance depends on how much dust and clouds are present in Earth's atmosphere.
Total eclipses tend to be very dark after major volcanic eruptions since these events dump large amounts of volcanic ash into Earth's atmosphere. During the total lunar eclipse of December 1992, dust from Mount Pinatubo rendered the Moon nearly invisible.
All total eclipses start with a penumbral followed by a partial eclipse, and end with a partial followed by a penumbral eclipse (the total eclipse is sandwiched in the middle).
If you have a pair of binoculars, they will help magnify the view and will make the red coloration brighter and easier to see.
The color can also vary from dark gray or brown, through a range of shades of red and bright orange. The color and brightness depend on the amount of dust in Earth's atmosphere during the eclipse. Using the Danjon Brightness Scale for lunar eclipses, amateurs can categorize the Moon's color and brightness during totality. Using a standard list lunar craters, one can careful measure the exact time when each crater enters and leaves the umbral shadow.

These crater timings can be used to estimate the enlargement of Earth's atmosphere due to airborne dust and volcanic ash.
Fortunately, lunar eclipse photography is easy provided that you have the right equipment and use it correctly.
For more photographs taken during previous lunar eclipses, be sure to visit Lunar Eclipse Photo Gallery.
During the five thousand year period from 2000 BCE through 3000 CE, there are 7,718 eclipses of the Moon (partial and total). Click on the eclipse Date to see a diagram of the eclipse and a world map showing where it is visible from.
Although penumbral lunar eclipses are included in this list, they are usually hard to see because they are faint. The Umbral Magnitude is the fraction on the Moon's diameter immersed in the umbra at maximum eclipse.

Now the first myth on our list of ten myths and facts about lunar eclipses is regarding the blindness known to be a side effect of looking at an eclipse dead on, with a naked eye of course! Observers can expect to see only a dark diffuse edge of the inner shadow nick the the Moon as is grazes the umbra. The eclipse will be visible at moonrise from South America to Western Europe and occurring at moonset for eastern Australia and the Far East. The Moon’s orbit is inclined 5.15° degrees with respect to the ecliptic, which traces out our own planet’s path around the Sun.
The minimum number of eclipses that can occur in a calendar year is 4, and the maximum is 7, as will next occur in 2038. The only solar totality that will touch the surface of the Earth in 2013 is  the hybrid eclipse on November 3rd spanning Africa and the South Atlantic with a maximum totality of 1 minute & 40 seconds. Colloquial names for the April Full Moon are the Pink, Fish, Sprouting Grass, Egg, Seed, & Waking Moon. Also, this project only works if the eclipsed Moon is high in the sky throughout the exposures, as the thick air low to the horizon will discolor the Moon as well. YOU may just be able to catch a transit  of the International Space Station in front of the Moon just as the ragged edge of the umbra becomes apparent on the limb of the Moon. We do not expect an avalanche of web broadcasts, but hey, we’d definitely honor the effort!  Slooh is usually a pretty dependable site for live eclipse broadcasts, and as of this writing seems to have broadcast scheduled in the cue.
Jokes apart, everyone on this planet is waiting for (for some the wait is over) the Hunter’s Moon, the rarest most impossible eclipse to take place and therefore, it seemed fitting that we bring to you an update regarding the same!
She completed her four years Bachelor's Degree in Computer Sciences and later on did her Masters in Business Administration with a specialization in Banking and Finance. The partially eclipsed Moon will be directly overhead just off the northeastern coast of Madagascar. The last one occurred on December 10th 2011, and the next one won’t occur until April 15th 2014, favoring the Pacific Rim region. Check CALSky a day or so prior to the eclipse for a refined path… it would be an unforgettable pic! Well this article would be less of an update and more of an analysis on some facts and myths about the lunar eclipse and especially about the Blood Moon .
The effect of an eclipse is damaging to the eyes but that is just true for a solar eclipse.
