A partial eclipse of the full moon will be seen Monday morning in California and across the Pacific Ocean throughout the rest of the day, finally ending in Australia on Tuesday. The eclipse will occur just as the moon is setting, making the event seem even larger. This partial lunar eclipse is the second nighttime event to occur in this region in the last two weeks.
This same area of the world was able to view the “ring of fire” solar eclipse that occurred last week.
Tomorrow, all areas of the world will be able to view the “Transit of Venus.” This event occurs when Venus passes in front of the sun. Viewers, using the right eye protection, will be able to see the black dot moving across the front of the sun throughout the day. There will be many viewing opportunities on the Internet through live feeds that will not damage the eyes.
The Venus transit will not occur again for one hundred and five years.
