Pastor: July 27 eclipse is sign of Apocalypse

One More Blood Moon this July – What Should We Expect?

The last lunar eclipse occurred on January 31, an event called "Super Blue Blood Moon".Unlike solar eclipse, there is no need to wear protective eyewear while watching the lunar eclipse. While there are numerous superstitions associated with eclipses, the ominous date for this eclipse (Friday the 13th is considered unlucky and is associated with horror in Western superstition) is creating a lot of buzz online.

Traditionally, Indians believed that solar eclipses are inauspicious as the Sun is not clearly seen and it could lead to an increase in bacteria and germs. During a total solar eclipse the entire Sun is obscured by the moon for a brief period of time.

The partial solar eclipse will peak in the Southern Hemisphere, close to the South Pole, on Friday, July 13. Stargazers must try not to witness the celestial performance with their naked eyes and keep their special protective eyewear and glasses ready.

According to experts the intake of food, do's and dont's during an eclipse differ too.

Who can see the partial solar eclipse?

The middle of this summer's eclipse season coincides with a total eclipse of the moon on July 27, and it is so central (the moon will pass nearly straight through the middle of Earth's shadow) that we can also have two "marginal" solar eclipses - the first comes two weeks before the lunar one and the other solar eclipse comes two weeks after. To help prevent side effects, during the time of eclipse, Shiv Chalisa should be read, the needy should donate food and basil leaves should be eaten.Scientific and astronomers recommend that seeing a solar eclipse through the naked eye is risky and it can also damage the sight. It would last for a duration of 1 hour 13 minutes. Chanting of mantras dedicated to sun god is another practice followed by many households in the country. For which this eclipse will hardly be visible to people all over the world.

The Christian preacher, who thinks we are now living in the end times, has interpreted the July 27 lunar eclipse as an apocalyptic sign.

The Moon orbits around the Earth once every 28 days, but the Moon's orbit around Earth, much like Earth's orbit around the Sun is not a ideal circle- it is an elongated oval, or ellipse. This moon has also been known as the Full Thunder Moon and the Full Hay Moon.
