Solar Eclipse 2023

 About Solar Solar Eclipse A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun's light and casting a shadow on the earth. There are three types of solar eclipses: total, partial, and annular. During a total solar eclipse, the moon completely covers the sun, creating a breathtaking sight of the sun's corona or outer atmosphere, stars, and planets in the sky. A partial solar eclipse happens when the moon only partially blocks the sun's light, while an annular eclipse occurs when the moon is farther away from the Earth, resulting in the sun appearing as a ring of fire. Solar eclipses are rare events that occur only a few times each year, and they can only be seen from certain parts of the world. It's important to note that viewing a solar eclipse can be dangerous to the eyes without proper protection. Special solar filters or eclipse glasses must be used to safely view the eclipse.
