Pakistan to experience its second solar eclipse of the year

A few weeks after Friday's eclipse on 4 April the third of four ‘blood moon’ lunar eclipses will take place while it is also the first day of spring and the first day of the Jewish religious calendar. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes

A solar eclipse or Surya Grahan is going to occur today when the moon will obstruct the way between the sun and the earth. All the solar eclipses on Friday the 13th - in 1974, 2018 and 2080 - are partial eclipses.

People who are planning to view the partial eclipse should make sure to wear proper glasses to protect their eyes from the sun (eyewear is not required to look at lunar eclipses).

Martin wins Stage 6 of Tour de France, Van Avermaet keeps lead
It was in 2011 when the Tour first finished a stage on the steep, two-kilometre climb to Mur-de-Bretagne. "I saw the moment". However, the commissaries retrospectively handed Dumoulin his 20 second time penalty pushing him further down the standings.

The solar event has brought even more superstition to the already unlucky day, as prominent USA evangelist and pastor Paul Begley took to YouTube to claim that "demonic forces" may be at play today.

The partial solar eclipse on July 13 2018 will be followed by the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century on July 27, 2018, while on July 31, Mars will come closest to Earth. Some sections of modern sciences do nottstick to the idea of following the idea of refraining from food or water but Ayurveda practitioners believe that staying away from food during the eclipse is advisable. In the absence of sunlight, the bacteria tend to get active, which could affect the nutritive profile of your food and prove detrimental to health. This time around the eclipse is just for an hour, so it should not be so hard to fast. The eclipse will be a partial one - when the Moon slips past, only partially concealing the Sun. And the next solar eclipse of 2018 will occur on 11th August this year.
