Eclipse 2018: Why eager stargazers may be DISAPPOINTED by Friday 13 eclipse

A few weeks after Friday's eclipse on 4 April the third of four ‘blood moon’ lunar eclipses will take place while it is also the first day of spring and the first day of the Jewish religious calendar. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes

A solar eclipse also known as Surya Grahan in India is said to occur when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, as a result partially or fully blocking the Sun.

Total solar eclipses happen because the Sun's diameter is 400 times wider than the Moon's, but it is also 400 times farther away. However, in a partial eclipse the moon blocks the sun partially.

A partial solar eclipse will take place on July 13 in 44 years. Unfortunately the mainland USA won't be privy to any of these astronomical spectacles. The total solar eclipse will occur at 3:01pm and will end at 4:13pm. The phenomenon will be visible to those who live in south-eastern coast of Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand's Stewart Island and the northern coast of Antarctica. The eclipse would not be visible to many; those inhabiting the Pacific and Indian Oceans would be able to see the eclipse better.

"The opportunity for photographers to catch a glimpse of this is spectacular because, although there are a fair few lunar eclipses, we won't see another like this for quite some time".

The ingredient in question is glyphosate, which California added to a list of chemicals known to cause cancer just a year ago . But serious doubts remain as the World Health Organization in 2015 classified glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans".

Observers are reminded to protect their eyes during a solar eclipse and should never look directly at the sun with naked eyes. The visual of Solar Eclipse will not be visible to many and only a small part of Antartica would be able to watch the eclipse.

Astronomers in the Swedish city of Kuruna and Tromso in Norway will see the eclipse at 25 and 29 percent coverage respectively.

Experts have prohibited directly viewing the eclipse without safety measures. According to NASA, there has not been a solar eclipse on Friday the 13th since December 13, 1974. There are many beliefs and myths associated with this date across the world. On July 13, a partial solar eclipse will take place; on July 27, a lunar eclipse is expected to occur; and on July 31, the earth will be the closest it has been to Mars in 15 years. This eclipse will be the longest in this century and is expected to last for more than 100 minutes.
