On Thursday afternoon, Bay Area residents and visitors will be able to view a partial eclipse of the sun in the southwestern sky, but experts warn that looking at the sun for more than a glance without proper protection or a filter can damage eyes.
A partial solar eclipse will be visible from the Bay Area later this month.
California and several other states in the western United States are getting front row seats early Wednesday morning to the second and final total eclipse in the “Blood Moon” tetrad series of 2014.
After dazzling sky watchers Monday night, get ready for round two. Set your calendar for October 8th, when the second total lunar eclipse in this “Blood Moon” tetrad occurs, but this one is for super early risers, or serious night owls. The full eclipse will occur at 3:55 a.m. over the San Francisco – San Jose – Oakland area.
A driver who was blinded by the sun struck a woman and her 10-year-old daughter as they crossed a street in South San Francisco on Sunday evening, police said.
Bay Area sky watchers are in for a rare treat this weekend. After almost two decades, a “ring of fire” eclipse will be visible in the continental United States.
