There is a partial eclipse of the sun tomorrow

There is a partial eclipse of the sun tomorrow”

There was a partial eclipse of the sun visible from sites in Caithness back in 2015.

A partial eclipse of the sun will be visible in the Netherlands on Thursday morning, as the moon crosses across the sun from right to left.

This causes the sun to appear as a very bright ring, or annulus, in a phenomenon dubbed as the "ring of fire".

He said: "Looking at the sun directly, without the appropriate protective eyewear can result in a condition known as solar retinopathy which can cause temporary or permanent visual loss".

The next full solar eclipse happens September 23 2090. If it is at its closest point to Earth then it can block out most of the Sun's rays - a total eclipse.

Another fun and completely safe way to indirectly observe the eclipse is to fetch a kitchen colander and look at the shadows projected onto the floor or a wall; at the peak of the eclipse you'll see lots of tiny crescent suns. You should never look at the sun before, during or after an eclipse without protective eyewear. The solar eclipse will start at 1.42 pm Indian time and will end at 6.41 pm.

However, there are a few fakes on the market, so people should make sure any glasses they plan to use are ISO 12312-2 tested and certified, meaning they've met standards for eye safety when looking at the Sun set by the International Organization for Standardization, Aur noted.

That's because, in part, these glasses are made of paper and adhesive, so "there may be some delamination due to humidity, if the glasses got wet, were stored in excessive heat, etc. ..." Another method for safely viewing the eclipse is to use a pinhole projector, according to AL.com. The delicate retina cells can be damaged by the sun's rays, which remain powerful even during an eclipse.

If your location has bad weather or it doesn't fall along the annular or partial eclipse paths, there are plenty of viewing options online. Annular eclipses occur when the moon is farther away and so appears smaller than the visible disk of the sun.

Another livestream of the solar eclipse will be broadcast at timeanddate.com, at 5 am EDT (09:00 UTC).

The Royal Observatory Greenwich is also live-streaming the eclipse on its website and YouTube channel.

The fact that eclipses look the way they do from Earth is essentially luck.

This solar eclipse timetable provides viewing prospects for various cities in the US and around the world.
