Solar eclipse LIVE: Ring of fire visible as millions around world try to see it


In a partial solar eclipse today, about a third will be blocked by the Moon.

Parts of the Northern Hemisphere will experience a total eclipse, as some countries are facing near blackouts overhead this morning.

The event – also known as the Ring of Fire – is an annular solar eclipse that occurs every year in different regions of the world.

And people in the UK and US would be lucky enough to catch it.

A partial eclipse will occur in the UK from around 11.13 a.m. BST, while it will be visible at several different times in northern parts of North America.

    How many times does the ring of fire incident happen?

    There are no regular events for Ring of Fire displays but they can happen every one or two years.

    It depends on when all three bodies are aligned, although there are differences because the Moon’s orbit around the Earth is elliptical, causing the Moon to vary in distance from Earth.

    This in turn affects the type of solar eclipse seen when all three are aligned.

    The Ring of Fire will be visible today, although Britons will not be able to see the Ring of Fire even if they are able to see the eclipse.

    Those in northern Greenland, parts of nearby Baffin Bay, eastern Hudson Bay and northeastern Russia would sit in the way of the Ring of Fire.

    different types of solar eclipse

    An eclipse occurs when the Moon moves to a position where it blocks all or part of it from view.

    This eclipse is partial, so about a third of the Moon is likely to be blocked from view on Earth.

    Below are some of the different types of eclipses and how they look on Earth.

    What is Ring of Fire?

    The Ring of Fire occurs during an annular or partial solar eclipse.

    A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Moon.

    During an annular eclipse, the Moon is far away from the Earth so the Moon appears smaller in the sky.

    As small as it appears, it is not completely blocked, so when it passes in front of it it leaves a circular, orange-red ring-like border for the human eye.

    That effect is called the “Annulus” or Ring of Fire around the Moon.

    Eclipse ‘won’t look like a regular Granthshala’

    “It’s not going to look like your regular Granthshala,” Jackie Faherty, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, told SPACE.com.

    “It’s kind of quiet,” Faherty said, “because the way the Moon’s shadow is going to pass over Earth, it’s going to pass over the North Pole.”

    She confirms that it is rare for a solar eclipse to pass over the North Pole.

    safest way to watch solar eclipse

    This is the safest and cheapest way to watch a solar eclipse – with just two pieces of card.

    The do-it-yourself method involves making a pinhole in a piece of cardboard.

    With your back to one side, hold the card with the pinhole up to your shoulder, letting the glistenings begin.

    The other piece of paper should be about three feet away without interruption to project the image to the other side.

    Don’t look through the pinhole.

    Can you see the solar eclipse directly?

    Stargazers will be able to watch the spectacle of the solar eclipse this morning (June 10, 2021), but Britons are warned to make sure they have proper protection as looking straight ahead can lead to blindness.

    Never look straight during a solar eclipse.

    Looking straight ahead can cause permanent damage to your eyes.

    After viewing a solar eclipse, if you or your child has any changes in vision that continue to worsen, seek treatment from an eye care professional.

    Exposing your eyes without proper eye protection during a solar eclipse can lead to “eclipse blindness” or retinal burn, also known as solar retinopathy.

    How Ancient People Interpreted Solar Eclipses

    Many ancient cultures were confused by solar eclipses and thought it was the work of gods or some animal in the sky.

    In ancient western Asia, some people thought were being eaten by a dragon.

    The Vikings thought that two sky wolves were responsible for the bites.

    In China, an ancient myth suggests that a total eclipse occurs when a sky dog ​​is trying to eat.
