Types of Solar Eclipse

Types of Solar Eclipse



Eclipse is an astronomical event. When the Moon passes through the middle of the Earth and the Sun and the Sun is completely or partially covered by the Moon when viewed from the Earth. That is, when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, the image of the Sun behind the Moon is covered for some time. This phenomenon is called solar eclipse.


 

Surya Grahan Types 


 

Total Solar Eclipse

 


A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely obscures the face of the Sun while moving across the Earth. It is visible only to those who are in the shadow of the Moon when it hits the Earth. The sky will become dark, like dawn or dusk.


The first type of solar eclipse is the total solar eclipse. This happens when the Moon, being very close to the Earth, comes between the Earth and the Sun and the Moon completely takes the Earth in its shadow area, as a result of which the Sun's light does not reach the Earth and there is darkness on the Earth. The situation arises when the whole sun is not visible on the Earth.


 

Annular Solar Eclipse

 


An annular eclipse occurs when the Moon is at or near its farthest point from Earth, and passes in front, blocking out sunlight. Due to its greater distance from Earth, the Moon appears smaller than the Sun and does not completely obscure it. As a result, the Moon appears as a dark disc on top of a larger, brighter disc, giving the impression that the Moon is surrounded by a ring.


The third type of solar eclipse is the annular solar eclipse. In an annular solar eclipse, when the Moon, being far away from the Earth, comes between the Earth and the Sun, i.e. covers the Sun in such a way that only the central part of the Sun comes in the shadow area and is seen by the Moon as seen from the Earth. The Sun does not appear completely covered, but due to the illumination of the area outside the Sun, it appears shining in the form of a bracelet or ring. The solar eclipse made in a bracelet shape is called an annular solar eclipse.


 

Partial Solar Eclipse

 


A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth but the three celestial bodies are not exactly in a line. It appears that the Sun is partially hidden and is taking the shape of a crescent. People outside the region of the Moon's inner shadow experience a partial solar eclipse during a total or annular solar eclipse.


Another type of solar eclipse is a partial solar eclipse. In a partial solar eclipse, when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth in such a way that only some part of the Sun is not visible from the Earth, that is, the Moon is able to take only some part of the Sun in its shadow. Due to this, some part of the Sun is in the eclipse and some part remains unaffected by the eclipse, then the eclipse in that particular part of the earth is called a partial solar eclipse.


 

Hybrid Solar Eclipse

 


Due to the curved shape of the Earth's surface, some annular and total eclipses occur alternately and this condition is called a hybrid solar eclipse Surya Grahan).

 

Conclusion

 

When the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, then the image of the Sun behind the Moon is completely covered for some time. This process itself is called a solar eclipse. Due to the coming of the Moon between the Earth and the Sun, the Sun's light does not reach the Earth, due to which the Earth appears dark in the daylight for some time. According to scientists, when the Sun, Moon, and Earth come in a straight line, then a solar eclipse occurs. Talk to astrologers to know more about the type of Solar eclipse.
