Most of Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia was treated to a spectacular partial lunar eclipse. If part of the sun still sticks out, it's a partial eclipse. For those hoping to catch a glimpse of the event, Wisconsin Optometric Association president David Nelson says you need to protect your eyes.

It will take place onMonday, August 21, 2017, but will only be visible across the United States.

"It now appears that some companies are printing the ISO logo and certification label on fake eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers made with materials that do not block enough of the sun's ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation to make them truly safe", the organization warned. Even if you're not in the path of totality, our app allows you to calculate exactly how much of an eclipse you'll be able to see and get a preview with our eclipse simulation.

Despite this widespread impact on generation, technical experts in both California and the US federal government that they expect that the eclipse will not affect reliability of the electric systems.

The university will provide free glasses to view the eclipse, and will also open its solar telescope for observation. When that happens, a small part of the Moon's surface is covered by the darkest, central part of the Earth's shadow, called the umbra.

A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, the earth, and the moon align in an nearly straight line.
