Annular Solar Eclipse 2020: Top 5 Apps for Watching Celestial Event. We reported to you earlier that the total Solar Eclipse 2020 is to take place on Sunday 21st June.
The solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun. A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thus completely or partially hindering the light of the Sun for the Earth. This will be an “annular solar eclipse” that will show a ring of fire during the eclipse – also called as annulus. People will see the disc of the moon move gradually in front of the sun until it covers it totally, leaving only a burning ring of light around the border.
The “Solar Eclipse 2020” will be visible in Pakistan, India, Africa, Central African Republic, Congo, Ethiopia and China.
People who descend upon this “path of totality” for the big event are in for an unforgettable experience.
