How to Watch a Supermoon eclipse on Friday 13th, 2018

You missed a solar eclipse Get ready for a lunar eclipse on July 27-28

And for all those who might nonetheless be superstitious in regards to celestial coincidences, it is possible to unwind once this one has passed won't have yet another solar eclipse landing a Friday the 13th before the year 2080.

It happens on Friday the 13th of July, and it will be possible to see South Australia and Tasmania. However, solar eclipse will be partially visible in India, which is further called the partial social eclipse or the extracellular solar eclipse. In some instances, a lunar eclipse can be both preceded and followed by a solar eclipse. 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 said that the eclipse will begin at 1:48 pm.

Even though the Southern Ocean will get the best view of the July 13 eclipse, there will be another chance to see a partial solar eclipse this summer on the opposite end of the world. The partial eclipse will last for 3 hours and 55 minutes. During the year, there are at least two eclipses of the Sun, but no more than five.

Of course, make sure to take all of the proper safety viewing recommendations when checking out a solar eclipse.


A common belief across many cultures is that eclipses can be risky for pregnant women and their unborn babies. However, in olden days the period of solar eclipse was believed to be an inauspicious event as the main energy providing source sun is not clearly visible.

This Friday the 13th will mark a partial solar eclipse, when the moon will pass between the sun and earth, resulting in partially blocking the Sun.

Such long duration of total lunar eclipses had earlier occurred on July 16, 2000, for totality duration of 1 hour 46 minutes and another one on June 15, 2011, for totality duration of 1 hour 40 minutes.

Jonathan Powell, author of South Wales Argus night sky column, said: "For many this will be the eclipse of a lifetime, as it's the longest of the 21st century and there won't be another like it for 82 years".

It will also be a blood moon, since its colour would be reddish-brown.
