The process of occurrence of solar eclipse and its types

viva successfuli – A solar eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when the Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned in a straight line, and the Moon passes halfway between the Sun and Earth and partially or completely covers the Sun. Is.

The Moon is much smaller in size than the Earth. Also the distance is enough. Therefore, during a solar eclipse, only part of the Earth’s umbra is in the umbra and an eclipse occurs.

Solar eclipses, especially total eclipses, always attract anyone to watch, especially when these moments are rare. However, despite the beauty of the eclipse phenomenon, it is not very nice to look directly at the Sun.

We recommend that you use eye protection, such as sunglasses, binoculars, binoculars, etc. to view the solar eclipse.

Solar eclipse process.

Reported from the page of the Center for the Demonstration of Science and Technology, National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN). A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are in a straight line. Due to which the Moon appears to be swallowing the Sun wholly or partially.

However, this inline position between the three does not occur every time because the Earth’s orbit around the Sun is not in the same plane as the Moon’s orbit around Earth, but is inclined by about 5.1 degrees from the ecliptic.

An ecliptic is a path traversed by an object around a particular focal point of a coordinate system. An ecliptic on a celestial body is a circular plane in the form of an imaginary line that becomes the path of celestial bodies orbiting a central point of the Solar System.

In the total phase of a solar eclipse, there are some interesting things that we can see. Out of them the intensity of sunlight decreases, the situation on Earth will appear bleak. In addition, the Earth’s atmosphere will also cool, the temperature will decrease, the humidity will increase and the wind speed will change.

If the Moon and the Sun’s orbits are in the same plane, then once a month there will be one successive solar eclipse and one lunar eclipse. But since the reality is not like that, then we have to wait for the correct configuration.

The solar eclipse will occur again in a period of 18 years 11 days 8 hours with the exact same geometry in each eclipse. This is called the Saros Chakra.

The Saros Chakra is an eclipse cycle, which can be used to predict a solar eclipse as well as a lunar eclipse.

Eclipses in a Saros cycle will occur at the same orbital vertices and at the same time. Whether the location of the eclipse in a Saros cycle will shift to the same place as before.

A Saros cycle lasts from 1226 to 1550 years and consists of 69–87 eclipses which are a combination of partial, total, ring and hybrid eclipses. Of the total eclipses in a Saros cycle, there are 40-60 combinations of total, ring and hybrid eclipses.

total solar eclipse

For a total solar eclipse (GMT), on average, it will occur at the same location on Earth only once in 375 years, with periods that may be shorter or longer.

However, time is only a statistical calculation. In fact, the same location may experience GMT in less than 375 years or wait more than 1000 years to experience GMT.

types of solar eclipse

derive from time and dateThere are 4 different types of solar eclipses, including:

1. Annular Solar Eclipse

2. Partial Solar Eclipse

3. Total Solar Eclipse

4. Hybrid Solar Eclipse

A hybrid solar eclipse, also known as a total annular eclipse, is the rarest type of solar eclipse. This phenomenon occurs when a single eclipse changes from an annular solar eclipse to a total solar eclipse or vice versa along the path of the eclipse.
