What is Solar Eclipse?
The solar eclipse occurs when the new moon moves between the Sun and Earth. It blocks the sun rays to reach the earth casting a shadow on the different parts of the earth.
The shadow of the moon is not big enough to cover the entire earth so the shadow is always partial in nature. The shadow on the different areas keeps on changing due to the earth and the moon’s constant motion.
The earth incessantly rotates around its axis while it tracks the Sun, and the Moon orbits Earth. This is why solar eclipses appear traveling from one place to another.
What are the different types of solar eclipses?
Solar eclipses have four different types including partial solar eclipses, annular solar eclipses, total solar eclipses, and hybrid solar eclipses.
Partial solar eclipses happen when the moon partially covers the sun disk, as you can see in the image below:
Annular solar eclipses occur when the moon is unable to fully cover the sun and the edges of the sun look like the fiery ring, as you can see in the image below:
Total solar eclipses take place when the moon completely covers the Sun. the total solar eclipses happen only when the moon is near perigee, the point of the Moon’s orbit nearby to Earth.
Hybrid Solar Eclipses are the rare type of eclipses and occur when the same eclipse alters from an annular to a total solar eclipse and along the eclipse’s path.
