From the ring of fire to the bloody moon – do not miss the chance to enjoy the beauty and thrill of the coming solar eclipse, which will occur on June 21.
Eclipses, especially total ones, can be rare events for viewing, since this is a complex “dance” of orbits, time and visibility. The United States will have to wait until 2024 for the next complete solar eclipse, but modern technology allows us to see the broadcast of the nearest in full.
Observatories around the world are preparing a broadcast, which can be viewed on the website of The Virtual Telescope Project. NASA and ESA will also broadcast the celestial show, including the most impressive “ring of fire” around the Sun, on its resources.
An annular eclipse occurs when the moon is at the farthest point from Earth, and it does not seem large enough to completely cover the sun during a solar eclipse.
