A unique sight is going to be seen in the Northern Hemisphere of the Earth on Thursday. This time a solar eclipse will look as if it has formed in the sky. When the moon comes between the earth and the sun, a solar eclipse occurs, but this time the moon is at a greater distance from the earth. Therefore it will not completely cover the sun and sunlight will be visible from the edge. This is the only solar eclipse of this year.
Why is it made?
At this time of the year, the Moon and the Sun are at such a position relative to the Earth that both seem to be of the same size. The Moon’s orbit is not circular, so it sometimes appears larger and sometimes smaller according to its distance from Earth. When it is far away, it does not completely cover the sun when it comes between the earth and the sun and then the outer part of the sun looks like a ring.
Where will you look?
This year this ‘ring’ will be visible over the North Pole, Greenland and parts of Canada. Partial solar eclipse will be visible in parts of North America, Europe and Asia. It will not have a complete ring, but it will look as if the moon has eaten a piece of the sun. In the US, it can be seen before sunrise in areas like Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, North Alaska. However, it will not be visible in India.
how to see?
It can be seen online, those who are planning to see it in the sky, they must wear special glasses for this. Watching a solar eclipse directly without glasses can damage the eyes. Apart from this, special filters like telescope-telescope should be used.
