About Solar Eclipses

 

What is a Solar Eclipse? 

A solar eclipse is the alignment of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth. When the moon is aligned directly between the sun and the earth, it casts a shadow on our planet. If you are in the shadow (the umbra), you will fortunately get to see a total eclipse. If you're in the light part (the penumbra), you will see a partial eclipse. The best viewing area is within the center path of the eclipse as the round shadow will be cast upon you on earth. 

 

10 Interesting Facts About Solar Eclipses

  • The solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental US since 1979.
  • When the moon completely obscures the sun and leaves only a faint solar corona, it is called a Totality.
  •  There are three types of eclipses — partial (partially blocks the sun), annular (a ring of light appears around the edges of the sun), and total (the moon completely blocks the sun). You will be able to see a total eclipse as long as you are standing within the Totality transit path on August 21st of this year.
  • Our sun is approximately 400 times larger than our moon. By an amazing coincidence, the sun is also about 400 times farther away, which means the discs appear to be about the same size.
  • Once the total eclipse occurs, conditions change rapidly. Air temperature drops, any breeze will dissipate, birds stop chirping, and the onset of night appears. 
  • The moon speeds by the sun at approximately 1,398 miles per hour.
  • A solar eclipse always occurs two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse. 
  • The first solar eclipse was accurately predicted by Sir Edmond Halley in 1715 through the use of Newton's law of gravity.
  • Some of the most popular solar eclipse myths from ancient times speak about a sky wolf sinking his teeth into the sun (Norse), a dragon devouring the sun (China), and the onset of disaster and destruction (Greek).
  • Looking at the sun, even when it is partially covered by an eclipse, can cause eye damage and even blindness. NEVER look at the sun, even during a solar eclipse, without proper eye protection.
