Solar Eclipse
The oncoming annular solar eclipse formation will help us better understand Baily’s beads formations for further research

Annular Solar Eclipse is a treat to watch for everyone living on Earth. This solar event does not take place often in our universe. An annular solar eclipse normally involves the alignment of Earth, Moon, and the Sun on the same plane. However, the moon needs to be at its farthest point from our planet for it to be an annular event.

This Sunday, on June 21, 2020, we will be able to observe this decade’s first solar event from our planet. It will start at 9:15 am IST and reach its peak at 12:10 pm IST. The June 21 annular solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and of course, India. According to the official data from NASA, the Moon will block 99.4 percent of the Sun at its peak and will be visible from Northern India. This will help you see the ‘Ring of Fire‘ better.

Lunar and Solar Eclipse of 2020

The next penumbral lunar eclipse will take place on July 4-5. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth blocks some of the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon and the outer part of the Earth’s shadow, called the ‘penumbra’, covers all or part of the Moon. It is sometimes mistaken as a full Moon as it is harder to spot.

Another penumbral lunar eclipse will occur on November 29-30. It will be visible from much of Europe, much of Asia, North America, South America, Australia, and a few other regions. The eclipse will start at 1:32 am EDT (11:02 am IST) on November 30 and end at 5:53 am EDT (3:23 pm IST) on November 30. It will not be visible from India.

As the name suggests, the Moon will cover the entire disk of the Sun. Let us know what you have to say about this in the comments section below!
