Late Saturday evening into Sunday morning, very observant viewers in most of Earth's Western Hemisphere (as well as most of Africa and Western Europe) may be able to see a dim Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon.

A Lunar Eclipse / Eclipse of the Moon is the type of eclipse which is safe to look at with the naked-eyes (one-power), binoculars, and telescopes.

During a Lunar Eclipse / Eclipse of the Moon, the Earth's solar shadow shines on part or all of the Moon, at or very close to the time of the Full Moon phase. The Earth actually casts two shadows: the main and darker Umbral Shadow along with the secondary and dimmer Penumbral Shadow.

In the case of a Total Lunar Eclipse / Total Eclipse of the Moon, the Earth's Umbral Shadow completely envelops the Moon. In the case of a Partial Lunar Eclipse / Partial Eclipse of the Moon, only part of the Moon is covered by the Umbral Shadow.

In the case of a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon, only the dimmer Penumbral Shadow covers part or all of the Moon. A Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon is dimmer than a Partial Lunar Eclipse / Partial Eclipse of the Moon.

Of course, weather conditions have to be clear to have a chance to see this eclipse. However, the shading of the Moon during such a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon is extremely subtle, and not everyone may be able to tell when the eclipse is occurring.

One strategy for successfully observing a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon could be the following: Note the time of greatest eclipse (given below); first look at the Moon a couple hours before the time of greatest eclipse; then, follow the Moon as the eclipse progresses and see if you can notice the dimming of the Moon's image.

And, if you have a light-meter, you could take measurements a couple hours before the eclipse, and while the eclipse is progressing.

This Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon could be visible to viewers in South America, most of North America (except Alaska, the northern-most sections of Canada, and Iceland), southern tip of Greenland, most of Africa, Western Europe, Atlantic Ocean, and most of the Pacific Ocean.

       Times of Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon Eclipse Phases

             (EDT = Eastern Daylight Saving Time; UTC = Coordinated Universal Time)

                                Saturday, 2020 July 4 to Sunday, 2020 July 5

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Begins:                                    11:07:23 p.m. EDT / 3:07:23 UTC
Greatest Penumbral Lunar Eclipse:                                  12:30:02.2 a.m. EDT / 4:30:02.2 UTC
Primary Moon Phase - Full Moon:                                      12:44 a.m. EDT / 4:44 UTC
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse Ends:                                           1:52:27 a.m. EDT / 5:52:27 UTC

Special Note: Although the times given for the beginning and ending of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon are the correct times, it is highly unlikely that the beginning and ending can be viewed visually. On average, a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse / Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon is only visible approximately one-half-hour before until one-half-hour after the time of greatest eclipse.

Actual observations with precise times, of when such an eclipse is first visible and when the eclipse is no longer visible, would be valuable information for research scientists. Precise times can be determined from government time service radio stations, such as the following stations serving North America ---

  • Short-Wave: WWV, U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • Short-Wave: WWVH, U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology
  • Short-Wave: CHU, National Research Council of Canada
  • Consumer “Atomic Clocks” Corrected Periodically by Long-Wave Radio Station WWVB, U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology

SPECIAL ALERT: Do not confuse a Lunar Eclipse / Eclipse of the Moon with a Solar Eclipse / Eclipse of the Sun. Never look directly at any Solar Eclipse / Eclipse of the Sun unless you have the proper equipment and proper training to do so safely! Otherwise, eye-sight could be damaged, permanently!

SOLAR ECLIPSE / ECLIPSE OF THE SUN: TIPS FOR SAFE VIEWING:
Link >>> http://buhlplanetarium2.tripod.com/FAQ/soleclipse/solareclipseviewingtips.html

The July Full Moon is known as the Buck Moon, as it usually occurs around the time bucks are beginning to grow new antlers. Some people refer to the July Full Moon as the Thunder Moon, due to the many electrical storms prevalent during the "Dog Days of Summer," approximately July 3 to August 11.

Native Americans also referred to the July Full Moon as the Hay Moon, Buffalo (Bull) Moon, and the Hot Sun Moon.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the July Full Moon is known as the Wolf Moon, Old Moon, and Ice Moon.

And, this year's July 5 Full Moon is also known, in Earth's Northern Hemisphere, as the Short-Night Moon. This is due to the fact that it is seen in the sky for less time in one night than any other Full Moon of the year, due to its low astronomical declination in the sky.

As the Sun appears high in the sky (high in astronomical declination) near the Summer Solstice (which was June 20), at the same time of the year the Moon appears to travel low in the sky resulting in a later Moon-rise and an earlier Moon-set.

Most years the Full Moon of June is the Short-Night Moon. However, since this year's July Full Moon is closer to the Sumner Solstice than the June Full Moon, the July Full Moon is the Short-Night Moon for 2020.

Also, Saturday (2020 July 4), in addition to being U.S. Independence Day, is Earth Aphelion Day, the one day when Earth is farther from the Sun (at 8:00 a.m. EDT / 12:00 UTC, at a distance of 94,507,634.78783841 statute miles / 152,095,295 kilometers) than any other day of the year. Although the coldest time of the year, the Earth's closest approach to the Sun actually occurred on January 5 at 2:47 a.m. EST / 7:47 UTC (91,398,199 statute miles / 147,091,144 kilometers).

  1. I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the maximum of $1,000 daily for a maximum of 20 days. I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $20,000. Mike Fisher Hackers is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice and he is not like other scam pretending to have the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from Mike Fisher Hackers today! *email cyberhackingcompany@gmail.com

  8. الحجر الهاشمي
    يُعَدْ الحجر الهاشمي مِنْ المصادر الطبيعية الغنية بالجمالِ والدِفءِ، كما أن له سحر خاص حين يمزج مع عناصر التصميم الداخلي والخارجي، ويتميز بالصلابة والفخامة، وهو الأمثل على الإطلاق في الوجهات المعمارية.
    الحجر الهاشمي
    ● يتميز الحجر الهاشمي بقوة مقاومته لعوامل المناخ الخارجي من أشعة شمس حارقة، الأمطار، الرِّياح والرُّطوبة الْعَالية.
    ● لهذا فهو مناسب جدًا لوجهات المنازل والفلل، الأعمدة الداخلية والخارجية، الأرصفة، الكرنيش الطولية.
    ● كما أن ألوانه ثابته ومتعددة يمكن تداخلها في التصميم، يدوم لسنين بنفس الرونق وسهل التنظيف. مما يجعله مناسب للديكورات الداخلية أيضا.
    ● يناسب الديكور العصري والكلاسيكي، ويتناغم مع الستايل الكلاسيك الإنجليزي بالأخص، حيث تمتزج الأحجار مع الأخشاب في لوحة طبيعية خلابة.
    توظيف الحجر الهاشمي في الديكور الخارجي.
    ● استخدام الحجر الهاشمي خارجيا ليس مقصور على الوجهات والأعمدة فقط، بل هو أنيق ورائع للجدران الخارجية ككل في الفلل والمطاعم.
    ● يستخدم لعمل النافورات والشلالات الصناعية في الحدائق، حيث تتناغم المياه مع الأحجار والخضرة لإعطاء لوحة طبيعية تخطف الأنظار.
    ● يُستخدَم أيضًا لعمل الشوايات الخارجية في حديقة المنزل والمطعم.
    توظيف الحجر الهاشمي في الديكور الداخلي.
    ● تضيف خامة الحجر الطبيعية لمسة سحرية أنيقة لأي حائط بالمنزل وحينما تُسلَّط عليها الإضاءات المخفية فأنت بذلك تدخل إلى عالم خاص من السحر والخيال الذي لا يقاوم.
    ● يمكنك إضافة لمسة دافئة لمنزلك في غرفة الطعام أو المعيشة بعمل مدفأة حجرية رائعة.
    ● إضافة حائط حجري في حجرة النوم تعتبر لمسة حميمية للغرفة لا تقاوم في الليالي الباردة.
    ● للمطبخ العصري المفتوح، يضيف الحائط الحجري عند البار لمسة أنيقة تزيد من شهيتك عند الطعام حيث يتناغم الحجر مع رخام البار في سيمفونية طبيعية رائعة.
    ● إذا كان في منزلك سلم داخلي فالحائط الحجري عند الفراغ مع لمسة فريدة من الزرع الأخضر تعطي منظرًا خلابًا يخطف القلوب قبل الأنظار.
    ● في كابينة الشاور إضافة حائط حجري يضيف لمسة أنيقة لحمامك ويمكنك اختيار الحجر هاشمي ناعم الملمس.
    عند مدخل الشقة استقبل ضيوفك بحائط حجري في خلفية الكونسول مع إضاءة الأباليك الثرية لإضافة مظهر أصيل لبيتك.
