What is an Eclipse?

When one celestial body, such as a planet or a moon moves into the shadow of another celestial body, an eclipse occurs.

From Earth, you can view 2 types of eclipses: a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse.

A solar eclipse is when the Moon comes in between the Earth and the Sun and a lunar eclipse is when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon.

What Is an Annular Solar Eclipse?

An annular solar eclipse is when the moon comes in between the sun and the earth, but the position is such that the moon covers the center of the sun, leaving the outer edges of the sun visible, resulting in a “ring of fire” or annulus around the moon.

The eclipse on 21st June 2020 is an annular solar eclipse, where a ring of fire should be visible around the moon.

The annular solar eclipse will be visible clearly, especially from northern India.
