A solar eclipse is an event in which the moon passes in front of the sun, and during a total eclipse, it makes only the sun's corona visible. In other words, the moon creates a shadow and hides the suns light. In some parts of the United States, it will be a total eclipse.
The next total solar eclipse in the U.S. will be April 8, 2024. They happen about every 18 months around the world. For the United States, they are less common.
There are somewhere in between 2 and 5 solar eclipses a year. An eclipse is caused when two objects in space are in line with each other. In twelve months, there will be 5 solar eclipses around the world, which is unusually high.
There are 4 main types of solar eclipses, Annular Eclipse, Hybrid Eclipse, Partial Eclipse, and Total Eclipse. They are all caused when the moon orbits around the Earth and blocks out the Sun.
Yes! On April 8th, 2024 a total solar eclipse will pass through southern Indiana, but not Northern Indiana.
The sun has an extremely high intensity of light, and it can be too much for our eyes to handle. It is safe to look at a total eclipse when the moon is completely covering the sun, but when the moon doesn't completely cover it, you shouldn't look at it.
When viewing an eclipse, you should always wear eclipse glasses, because they filter the dangerous light. Don't take pictures, or view the eclipse through a telescope at all.
The music connection I chose is by the Beatles. It is called Here Comes the Sun. It is a connection because when the moon passes over the sun, the sun appears to come out from behind the moon.
The extra connection I chose was an article about the eclipse changing the tides. In the New England area, the tides will be unusually high around the time of the eclipse. During the eclipse, the moon's gravitational pull will be much greater because the sun and the moon are aligned.
You can. It will not damage your phone, but it may be slightly blurry. This is a connection to the eclipse because many people will try, and they want to know.
