Eclipses come in two basic "flavors." Solar eclipses occur when the moon hides the sun. They are daytime events and require safe filtration while any part of the sun is visible. The next total solar eclipse for us is " only months away, August 21 of this year, when the moon's shadow sweeps across the country from coastal Oregon to South Carolina on the ~t East Coast. For Pennsylvania and New Jersey about 80 percent of the sun will be covered by the moon, an event that will requre special filters to see throughout the entire eclipse. More about this later. On February 10 we get to witness the second broad category of eclipses, a lunar eclipse, the Earth's shadow blocking the moon, but this one will be decidedly different. If you could see the dark shadow of Earth projected into black space, you would observe a circular region where most of the sun's light was completely blocked called the umbra, and a ring or washer-shaped area surrounding the umbra where the intensity of sunlight gradually diminished towards the umbra, a result of Earth blocking more and more of the sun's light. This secondary shadow of Earth is called the penumbra. During this ha'mr eclipse, visible in the east, the moon only enters the penumbra of Earth, but the position of the moon at its maximum depth, 99 percent at 7:44 pan., EST, is so close to the tnnbra that Ltma will appear decidedly darkened (dusky) in this region. A very small portion ofthe moon, about one percent, opposite to this location will be exposed to full sunlight. The moon will look as if it is gradually losing light from one side to the other. If the moon is made into a clock, at maximum eclipse, Luna should be brightest at the 3:30 position and darkest at the 9:30 location. If you want to heighten the effect of the diminution of light, lay wearing sunglasses to observe the moon. Remember the Cory Hart song lyrics, "I wear my sunglasses at night." Well, here is your perfect opportunity to go Hollywood during the February 10 penumbral lunar eclipse. Clear skies to all!
