But back in these parts it's called the Full Sturgeon Moon because August is when, the Farmer's Almanac says, the sturgeon fish was most easily caught in the Great Lakes.

By the way, if you're hoping to check out a total solar eclipse in CT, unfortunately you'll have to wait until May 1st, 2079 to see it.

"The partial eclipse begins at 3:50pm and ends at 8:21pm GMT (11:21pm local time)".

The total phase would end at 01:02 PST (on August, 21st) whereas the Penumbral Eclipse would end on 02:04PST (on August 21st). The outer or penumbral shadow is a zone where the Earth blocks part but not all of the Sun's rays from reaching the Moon.

If you don't want any of that bother you can always watch the livestream of the astrological event.

Keep your eyes on the night sky this coming week as it will serve up some astronomical treats, starting with a partial lunar eclipse on Monday and ending with the Perseids meteor shower on Sunday.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth throws some major shade at the moon. The last solar eclipse visible from India was in March 2016.

On August 21, a total solar eclipse is projected to cut a broad swath all across the continental United States - beginning on the west coast in OR and moving across Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and SC.

F Espenak / NASA A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow).

"About a quarter of the moon should go a reddy colour or will certainly go dark and that's because the shadow of the Earth is on it". This will happen in the region of the constellation Leo, the Lion, where every year at this time the Sun moves in front of the star Regulus~the star at the heart of the Lion.

However, we will see some eclipsing. "It'll be interesting to see, in different places across the country if it makes a difference, whether the eclipse occurs in the morning as it will in Oregon".

There are four different types of solar eclipses: a partial solar eclipse, annular solar eclipses, total solar eclipses and hybrid solar eclipses. Since the moon's orbit around Earth is tilted about 5 degrees with respect to Earth's orbit around the sun, we only have eclipses at about six month intervals.
