What causes a solar eclipse?
It is a natural phenomenon when Moon comes between the earth and Sun, causing a shadow on a certain part of the earth. At that time Moon seems to appear as its dark shadow which is known as Solar Eclipse.
Moon is very smaller compare with Sun so blocks only shadow in a small area and makes it hidden in some countries only where the Moon shadow falls ( See the diagram above for a clear understanding).
Three Major Parts during a Solar Eclipse.
- UMBRA (Total) : It is the portion of moon shadow where moon completely covers the Sun and known as the total Solar eclipse that causes Sun hidden for some time and looks like a darker night in day.
- ANTUMBRA (Annular) : It is known as annual Solar eclipse when Moon is front of Sun and covers it completely but still outer shadow of Sun can be seen in the area where eclipse is occurring.
- PENUMBRA (Partial) : It is known as Partial Solar eclipse where Moon covers a portion of Sun and some portion is visible in the sky.
Important: No one should attempt to see Eclipse with bare eyes and if required to see then use certified eclipse glasses under special supervision else eyes might get effected.
