Types of Annular Solar Eclipse
Full, annular and partial solar eclipse.
When the moon completely covers the sun, darkness falls on the earth. In this case, the eclipse is called a complete solar eclipse.
Partial solar eclipse-
When the moon cannot cover the sun completely, it is called Khandagras or partial solar eclipse.
Annular Solar Eclipse-
In annular eclipse, the Moon covers about 99 percent of the Sun and only some outer part of the Sun is visible. In this, the outer part of the sun appears like a bright bracelet in rounding and the middle part is in shadow. This is called the annular solar eclipse.
When does solar eclipse happen
Solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes between the sun and the earth and the moon is cast on the earth. During this time, the Sun, Moon and Earth all come together. The solar eclipse that will occur on June 21 will be a circular eclipse.
