What is Annular Solar Eclipse?

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly in front of the Sun, but the Moon is at a farther distance from the Earth than during a total solar eclipse.

As a result, the Moon appears smaller than the Sun and does not completely cover the visible disk of the Sun. Instead, a thin ring or “annulus” of sunlight remains visible around the dark disk of the Moon.

During an annular solar eclipse, observers can witness the unique and spectacular visual effect of a “ring of fire” around the dark disk of the Moon.

Proper eye protection, such as eclipse glasses or solar filters, must still be used when observing an annular solar eclipse, as looking directly at the Sun can cause permanent eye damage or blindness.

When does Annular Solar Eclipse Occur?

Annular solar eclipses occur when the Moon is at or near its farthest point from Earth in its elliptical orbit, and the Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned in a straight line. This alignment allows the Moon to cast its shadow on the Earth, resulting in an annular eclipse.

Annular solar eclipses are less common than total solar eclipses, occurring only a few times a year and only visible from specific regions of the Earth where the alignment is visible.
