A solar eclipse sets in when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, and blocks out the Sunlight for a specific period of time and cast a shadow on parts of Earth. Since the Moon’s shadow is not big enough to engulf the whole earth, so the shadow is always limited to a certain area. As Earth and Moon are in constant motion with regards to each other, this area changes during the course of the eclipse. Earth continuously rotates around its axis while it orbits the Sun, and the Moon orbits Earth. This is the reason why solar eclipses seem to travel from one place to another.
A partial Solar eclipse observed around the globe today early morning. There are reports that in some parts like Singapore and UAE, thousands dazzled by rare “ring of fire” which is also coined as “Diamond ring’ sometimes.
Millions gathered, from casual onlookers to astronomy enthusiasts armed with the telescope and captured stunning glimpses of Solar eclipse around the world. Her we are sharing a few astrophotographs.
