National Geographic, Photo of the day (April 25, 2013)

Mesa Arch, Canyonlands

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photo

Mesa Arch in Utah's Canyonlands National Park is one of the finest places for a photographer to start the day. This 4x5 negative was exposed with an old lens, a 121mm Schneider Super Angulon. It was a favorite of Ansel Adams. While an excellent optic for its time, it only had single-layer coating and was subject to more flare than modern lenses. In this instance, it created a starburst pattern with rainbow streaks that add greatly to the character of the image.

Tonight! Full moon and Lunar Eclipse / Πανσέληνος και έκλειψη απόψε

Στην Ελλάδα, η έναρξη έκλειψης της παρασκιάς θα γίνει στις 21:03 ώρα το βράδυ και η έναρξη της μερικής έκλειψης στις 22:54.

Η αποψινή πανσέληνος, που θα εμφανιστεί περίπου στις 11 το βράδυ ώρα Ελλάδος, θα συνοδευτεί και από μια μερική σεληνιακή έκλειψη, που θα είναι ορατή σε μεγάλες περιοχές της ανατολικής Ευρώπης (και στην Ελλάδα), της Αφρικής, της κεντρικής Ασίας και της δυτικής Αυστραλίας.

Πρόκειται για την πρώτη έκλειψη οποιασδήποτε μορφής (σεληνιακή ή ηλιακή) εντός του 2013. Συνολικά τρεις σεληνιακές εκλείψεις θα συμβούν φέτος, οι άλλες δύο στις 25 Μαΐου και 18 Οκτωβρίου 2013.

Στη διάρκεια του έτους θα υπάρξουν και δύο μικρές ηλιακές εκλείψεις.

Η σημερινή θα είναι μια μερική έκλειψη με πολύ μικρή κάλυψη του σεληνιακού δίσκου από τη σκιά της Γης (μόλις το 1,5% της διαμέτρου του φεγγαριού) και θα έχει διάρκεια μόνο 27 λεπτών (η δεύτερη συντομότερη του 21ου αιώνα). Παρά τη μικρή αυτή κάλυψη -και εφόσον ο κατά τόπους καιρός επιτρέψει την παρατήρηση- η έκλειψη θα είναι ορατή με τα τηλεσκόπια, με δεδομένο ότι θα υπάρξει και το σκοτείνιασμα μεγάλου τμήματος της Σελήνης από την παρασκιά.

Στην Ελλάδα, η έναρξη έκλειψης της παρασκιάς θα γίνει στις 21:03 ώρα το βράδυ και η έναρξη της μερικής έκλειψης στις 22:54. Το μέγιστο της έκλειψης θα συμβεί στις 23:07, το τέλος της μερικής έκλειψης στις 23:21 και το τέλος έκλειψης της παρασκιάς στη 1:11 ώρα της 26ης Απριλίου.

Οι σεληνιακές εκλείψεις συμβαίνουν, όταν τα τρία ουράνια σώματα (Ήλιος, Γη, Σελήνη) ευθυγραμμίζονται, με τον πλανήτη μας να παρεμβάλλεται ανάμεσα στο άστρο μας και στον δορυφόρο μας. Οι μερικές σεληνιακές εκλείψεις είναι πολύ λιγότερο θεαματικές από τις ολικές, όταν όλος ο δίσκος του φεγγαριού καλύπτεται από τη σκιά της Γης.

The full moon will get a tiny bite taken out of it tomorrow as it undergoes one of the shallowest and shortest partial eclipses of this century. (See lunar eclipse pictures.)
Here's what you need to know about the rare lunar event.

What is a lunar eclipse?
A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth, and moon align. During total lunar eclipses, the entire moon is engulfed in Earth's darkest shadow. But during partial eclipses, the moon never completely goes dark or turns red—only a portion of its disk appears to go dim. (Read about a total lunar eclipse in 2011.)
"In this case, the moon only just clips the edge of the deepest part of the shadow, called the umbra," said Mark Hammergren, an astronomer at Adler Planetarium in Chicago, Illinois.
"The entire northern half of the moon will be slightly darkened by the penumbra, a broader, less intense area of the Earth's shadow."

Who will see it?
While North America will be left out of the sky show, much of the Eastern Hemisphere can see Earth's shadow brush across the outer half of the moon's surface over the course of the four-hour event. (Take a moon myths and mysteries quiz.)
All the stages of the eclipse will be visible across the Indian Ocean, central Asia, western Australia, Africa, and Europe.
Because only a tiny fraction of the moon's disk will dip into the darkest shadow cone, the entire partial eclipse phase will be a challenge to observe, lasting less than a half hour for viewers, Hammergren said.
"This eclipse is distinguished, or undistinguished, by being the second shortest partial eclipse of the moon in the 21st century, lasting only about 27 minutes," he said.
Luckily, armchair astronomers worldwide can watch the entire event from their computers via a public web feed.
SLOOH—an Internet-based space-tracking service—will be live streaming the eclipse with its robotic telescopes on the Canary Islands (map), broadcasting live over the Web starting at 3 p.m. ET on April 25.

When is best to watch?
The most readily visible part of the eclipse will begin at 3:54 p.m. ET, just as the moon is straight overhead for observers in the Indian Ocean.
The deepest and most interesting part of the eclipse—during which Earth's shadow will fall on less than 2 percent of the tiny sliver of the moon's disk—occurs at 4:07 p.m. ET and leaves the umbra at 4:21 p.m.

What if I miss this one?
Generally, between two and four lunar eclipses occur each year, but ones as slight as tomorrow's are rare. (Read about a 2012 lunar eclipse that occurred during a supermoon.)
The last time such a small partial lunar eclipse occurred was in 1958, and another one like it won't occur until 2034.
But don't fret: Later this year, two more partial lunar eclipses will be visible on May 25 and October 18.
