Solar 2

  1. 1.  A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Earth and theSun and casts a shadow on the Earth. There are two parts to the Moon’s shadow:• The dark inner cone shaped part called the Umbra from which the Suncannot be seen at all; and• The lighter outer part called the Penumbra from which part of the Suncan be seen.
  2. 2.  From The Path Of Annularity: The Moon gradually covers up the Sun in the initial partial phase; At maximum the Moon moves in front of the Sun and if it is too small to completelycover the Sun a ring or annulus of bright sunlight remains; then the Moon moves on to uncover the Sun in the final partial phase. The remaining ring of sunlight makes it too bright to be able to see the Sun’s corona andthe sky does not go very dark.
  3. 3.  An Eclipse of the Moon occurs when the Moonmoves into the Earth’s shadow. A lunar eclipse can only occur at full moon.
  4. 4. o Never look directly at the bright surface of thesun without proper eye protection as permanent eyedamage may result.o This applies at any time and especially during thepartial phases of a solar eclipse.o Refer to the advice issued by the queens landgovernment about how to view the eclipse safely.Warning !!!
