Eager stargazers are preparing for an early morning on Tuesday in order to view the latest lunar phenomenon. So eclipses aren't rare, it's just in order to see one, especially a total solar eclipse, you have to be in a particular location.

Even though the disk of the sun will be temporarily covered by the moon during the eclipse, you still can't stare directly at it.

The solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth and sun to darken the daytime sky.

There are four different types of solar eclipses: a partial solar eclipse, annular solar eclipses, total solar eclipses and hybrid solar eclipses.

"We're going to be looking at this event with unprecedented eyes", said Alex Young, a solar physicist who is coordinating NASA's education and public outreach.

The moon will retreat to the earth's penumbra again between 3:19 a.m. and 4:53 a.m., she said.

The sun is 400 times bigger than the moon, but the moon is 400 times closer to Earth.

In its astronomical diary for August, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the partial lunar eclipse would occur before midnight on Aug. 7 until the wee hours of Aug. 8. It was visible in India and all over Asia, Europe, and Africa, according to Nehru Planetarium officials. This averages out to about one and a half eclipses each year. "Our astronomy club will have a couple of telescopes set up with the solar filter attached so you will be able to see magnified views of the sun that way".

Solar eclipses occur when the moon comes directly between the sun and the earth, blocking our view of our local star. "Cows on some farms will maybe think its time to go back into the barn - you know a lot of things happen both up in space and on the ground".

In honor of the event, officials over at the Shreve Memorial Library are hosting an All-American Eclipse Viewing party at the Broadmoor Library in Shreveport. It requires the moon to fall between the sun and the Earth, so that it seems from our perspective to cover the sun - and that's only possible during a new moon.

The total phase would end at 01:02 PST (on August, 21st) whereas the Penumbral Eclipse would end on 02:04PST (on August 21st).
