Today sees a partial solar eclipse—but “see” is a generous term, since the only “people” who are liable to actually be able to see it are, well, penguins. The eclipse will only be appearing over Antarctica—but pick up your psychic antennae, and you might just be able to pick up on the astral vibes of the solar eclipse extending their way across the stratosphere, datasphere and astral wavelengths of the world… After all, the sun is the greatest influence on human consciousness in the heavens, and even if you can’t see it, you’ll still be able to feel its effect if it’s happening somewhere…
The Hindu reports:
A peculiar partial solar eclipse will take place on Friday. It will, however, not be visible anywhere in the world except the Antarctica, where it is likely to be seen only by penguins and sea birds. Partial solar eclipses taking place over the polar region, such as this one over the Antarctica, are peculiar in the sense that the centre of the shadow of the moon just misses the earth, Arvind Paranjpye of Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics said.
The partial solar eclipse will begin at [8:38 a.m. Universal Time].
The total duration of the celestial phenomenon will be for about an hour and a half.
The partial solar eclipse will be visible from southern latitudes and the Antarctica, Science Popularization Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE) president C.B. Devgun told PTI.
This southern hemisphere event is visible from a D-shaped region in the Antarctic Ocean, to the south of Africa, Mr. Paranjpye said.
What do you think—can we experience the effects of a solar eclipse even if we can’t see it? And what are those effects?
