In August, the inhabitants of the planet will be able to observe two rare cosmic phenomena: on Monday, August 7, a lunar eclipse is expected, and exactly two weeks later on August 21 there will be a solar eclipse.

According to NASA scientists, today's lunar eclipse will be seen by residents of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and even Antarctica. The entire eclipse cycle will take about two hours.

The best time to see this cosmic phenomenon in Ukraine is 21:20 pm. However, then it will be still light, therefore it won’t be so easy with the naked eye to see how the southern quarter of the Moon will get to the shadow of the Earth.

The beginning of the eclipse process is expected in the next few hours from 18:50, and the ending - at 23:50.

As it was reported earlier solar power plant might start working in Chernobyl zone in summer 2017. This will be the first solar power plant in Ukraine; it will be capable of producing 2500 mWatts of electric energy, - Ostap Semerak, Minister for Environment and Natural Resources.
