Why are there eclipses? | Make your own eclipse model
Why do eclipses occur? Show the mechanics of a solar eclipse using household items in our simple DIY astronomy video. This is a great experiment for a school science project, teaching the basics of an eclipse in a classroom, or a fun project to teach kids something new about the Solar System.
Solar Eclipse | After Dark Online
On December 14, the shadow of the moon will cross Earth in a rare event called a total solar eclipse. For a small portion of Earthly observers—in this case, those in a narrow strip across South America—the moon will be perfectly lined up between our planet and the Sun, casting an eerie darkness and offering a magnificent view of the solar corona. Join us to learn more about this fascinating alignment and prime yourself for the upcoming eclipse. This program features: Experiencing Totality
This time-lapse audio collage of the 2017 total solar eclipse captures the wondrous reactions of viewers under the shadow. (Begins at 3:31) What is a Solar Eclipse?
Join Exploratorium astronomer Isabel Hawkins and Exploratorium educator Liliana Blanco as they explain the celestial mechanics of a total solar eclipse. Begins at 7:23) Being There with Isabel Hawkins
Exploratorium astronomer Dr. Isabel Hawkins describes the feeling of witnessing a total solar eclipse and shares her experience of the community created around the shared experience. (Begins at 11:02) Eclipse Montage 1998–2019
A highlight reel of the Exploratorium’s coverage of total solar eclipses for the last two decades. (Begins at 37:59) Broadcasting from the Path of Totality with Rob Semper
Exploratorium Chief Science Officer Dr. Rob Semper shares the history of the Exploratorium’s broadcasting of total solar eclipses and the research, technology, talent, and luck that make it possible. (Begins at 40:09) How to Predict Eclipses
This short animation illustrates how a viewer on earth can begin to predict eclipse occurrences through first-person observation. (Begins at 1:00:49) The movements and mechanics of the planets, moons, and stars create awesome effects for us observers on Earth. Predictable yet coincidental, these cycles among the stars lead to gravitational bulges, lunar alignments, and a turnaround of apparent motion. Join us this month as we explore these effects as opportunities for wonder and harbingers of future change.
Astronomy Online: Secrets of the Eclipse #LearnWithMe
Eclipses are one of the most awe-inspiring events observable from our planet. Join Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty as she leads us through a tour of eclipses from all angles and from the best views, in celebration of the last eclipse of 2020, which takes place on December 14 and will be visible from Chile. New York City high school science teacher Deion Desir, an alum of the Museum’s Master of Arts in Teaching Earth Science program, pilots our journey from Earth and through our solar neighborhood, revealing the many secrets of the eclipse as we go. In 2020, the Museum is celebrating the legacy of Charles Hayden, whose vision made the Hayden Planetarium possible and brought the universe to New York City.

What is a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse? | Full Buck Moon 2020
A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs on the evening of Saturday, July 4th, for most of the Western Hemisphere. In this kind of lunar eclipse, the Moon only reaches the Earth’s outer shadow, so it doesn’t darken very much at all, and it won't look red like a total lunar eclipse. As seen from Flagstaff, Arizona, the Moon will rise on July 4th at 7:41 pm PDT. The penumbral lunar eclipse begins at 8:07pm, when the Moon begins to enter the penumbra. In this eclipse, the Moon never makes it all the way into the penumbra. Maximum eclipse is at 9:30pm. The Moon leaves the penumbra at 10:52pm, and the penumbral eclipse ends. Join Lowell Observatory at 8pm PDT on Saturday, July 4th, for a live stream of this penumbral lunar eclipse: https://youtu.be/LI0flPMJifk.
6 Amazing Facts About Solar Eclipses You Didn't Know

FACEBOOK ➜ https://www.facebook.com/astrobyte
TWITTER ➜ https://www.twitter.com/astrobytez A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes in front of the Sun and casts a shadow across Earth. It's also known as an occultation. The reason solar eclipse happens is that the Sun is about 400 times larger than the Moon, but the Moon is about 400 times closer to the Earth. What this means is that the Sun and the Moon both have a very similar size when viewed from Earth, so when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, it blocks the light from reaching Earth. During the eclipse the corona shined like a ring around the moon fully covering the sun totality. During totality, up to a 200-km-wide core shadow was created. The weather during a solar eclipse changes noticeably.
Lufft‘s weather sensor recorded, that it got cloudier and windier shortly before the eclipse started. The temperature dropped 4 °C due to light loss. The global radiation changed significantly with the beginning of the eclipse as reflected by the measurements. The darkness was comparable with the time shortly before sunset. The whole process was like a change from daylight to twilight. As the moon moves in front of the sun, the sun shadow takes the same form as the current one of the solar eclipse. This gets clearly visible when holding a perforated plate in between the sun and the ground. The special shadow looked even sharper on the ground so it was possible to see very fine shapes. Solar eclipses don’t occur every month even the moon seems to take the same path.
The orbit of the moon is tilted relative to the orbit of the Earth around the sun, like a Gyroscope, so the moon often passes below or above the Earth. At those times, it does not cross the line between the sun and the Earth, and therefore does not create a solar eclipse. Only twice a year a solar eclipse is possible. The sun is 400 times larger than the moon and however gets covered completely.
The closer an object, the bigger is its apparent size such. The Sun is about 400 times larger than the Moon, but the Moon is about 400 times closer to the Earth. The result is that from Earth, they appear to be the same size. Because of the various orbits, different types of eclipses occur: If the moon covers the sun only partially, it is called a partial solar eclipse. If the moon moves completely in front of the sun, but cannot cover it completely due to the large distance, it is an Annular Eclipse. Only in the case of a total solar eclipse, everything matches perfectly, so that the sun disappears completely for a few minutes, leaving only its corona. During an eclipse, you can look into the future.
Although the last total solar eclipse occurred around midday, stars were visible during the phase of totality as at night. What is to be seen in the sky, however, it is not the normal stellar constellation but one that will be seen in several months. Visible sunspots are magnetic fields changing the flow of cosmic material.
Although the sun is 149,600,000 km away from the Earth, geomagnetic storms on the sun affect our magnetic field. This can even affect airplane or satellite communication or power grids. The geo magnetic storms, also called prominences, are mostly much larger than the Earth. They consist of a loop of hot gas coming from deeper sun layers, such as 20,000 °F hot helium caused by solar magnetic activity. During the eclipse, these events get visible in form of sun spots. Solar eclipse events won’t happen forever.
As the moon is slowly distancing itself from the earth, the total solar eclipse will expire one day. In around 400 Million years the distance between the moon and the sun will be too far to fully cover the sun’s disk. Then, solar eclipses will only be a magical memory. Credit: NASA/ESA

Rare 'ring of fire' solar eclipse seen across Asia
People gathered in different parts of Asia on Boxing Day to watch the annular solar eclipse, also known as a 'ring of fire'. The annular eclipse started from Dammam in Saudi Arabia and travelled across the Indian Ocean towards southern India and over the northern part of Sri Lanka and ended above the Pacific Ocean. There are usually two solar eclipses on Earth every year, and they occur only when the Earth is completely or partially in the Moon's shadow.

Live: Watch the only annular 'Ring of Fire' solar eclipse of 2019 围观2019年度最后一场天文奇观
On December 26, an annular solar eclipse also known as the "Ring of Fire" occurs through a narrow geographic corridor sweeping from the Arabian peninsula all the way to the Pacific Ocean via southern India, the Bay of Bengal, Singapore and Indonesia, according to Eclipse Portal. CGTN brings live coverage of the view on scene. During the rare event, the Moon crosses the Sun along its center. However, the Moon's size in the sky is not large enough to overlap that of the Sun during the process, thus creating the illusion of the "Ring of Fire."
Solar Eclipse 2019
UAE will be witnessing a rare solar eclipse on 26th December 2019. The event in its entirety is largely a partial solar eclipse, with the “ring” event lasting just a few minutes only in the Liwa region of Abu Dhabi. It will be visible at sunrise on the Arabian Peninsula (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Qatar). Join The Dubai Astronomy Group live to enjoy the unique experience with us. the eclipse will be starting from 7:00 AM And ending at 9:00 AM

During an eclipse, the Moon blocks the light of the Sun, allowing us to view stars that would normally be overwhelmed by the Sun’s glare. Similarly, a coronagraph acts as an “artificial eclipse” to block the light from a star, allowing planets that would otherwise be lost in the star’s glare to be seen.
