Hybrid solar eclipse brings together features of all eclipses, with a little bit Persistent Earth-Moon-Sun alignment, It first manages to be annular, then it is a total eclipse for a very short period of time, and finally it is annular again.

This phenomenon occurs because the Moon is at its threshold point for its penumbral shadow to reach Earth, which due to its curved shape allows its natural satellite to completely block incoming sunlight for a moment. is, then returns to the annular phase. Assumption.

Eclipse Astronomy
A hybrid eclipse first becomes annular, then briefly becomes a total eclipse, and finally becomes annular again.

areas that At least a partial eclipse will be visible this April 20: Part of Southeast Asia, Oceania, a part of Antarctica, Indian and Pacific oceans, known as eclipse of ningaloo passes through the path of totality north west cape (Northwestern Cape), a cape and large peninsula on the northwest coast of Australia.

it’s about a annular solar eclipse In this case the Moon is aligned between the Earth and the Sun in such a way that the lunar disk covers the exact center of the solar disk and leaves a thin layer ring of Fire around the moon.

We’ve managed to see a number of “blood moons” in recent years, a phenomenon that occurs when Earth stands between the Sun and our natural satellite, creating a shadow cone that covers the Moon in its full phase. When exposed to black, it becomes a reddish color to our eyes, hence the name. There is no such lunar spectacle in its plans for any point on the planet this 2023.

Moon And Sun
The last eclipse of the year is a partial lunar eclipse. To whom the credit is due.

For our local readers who are a little disappointed with what this 2023 has in store for us in terms of eclipses, remember that The rarity in 2019, 2020 and 2021 was that three total solar eclipses were viewable from Argentina In April 2022 it was also seen in extreme south.
