It is reported by NASA that at some places, the sun will hide up to 99.4%. The moon will be the farthest from the Earth during this time, so it will not be able to completely cover the sun. It is also reported that on June 21, 2020, there will not only be just a solar eclipse but also it will be the longest day as the sun is at the highest altitude of the Earth.

Solar Eclipse 2020-What is special this time?

The eclipse between the Earth and the sun of the moon (Solar Eclipse 2020) is not unique, but this time (June 21, 2020) this astronomical phenomenon is incredibly special, named ring of fire.

What is a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse takes place at a moment when the moon passes between the sun and Earth. The readers must know that the moon is 400 times smaller than the sun but it is exactly at the right distance between the sun and earth, the moon fully blocks the sunlight from the earth’s perspective. An object when closer to us appears to be bigger than the same object far away.

Though the moon is 400 times smaller than the sun, the distance between the earth and the moon is about 400 times closer than that of the earth with the sun. It clearly means that the size of the sun and the moon appear roughly the same from the earth in the sky. This is the reason when the moon comes between the sun and earth during a solar eclipse, it looks like that moon has covered up the light from the sun.

  • When the moon blocks all light of the sun, it is called a total solar eclipse. When the moon blocks a part of sunlight it is known as partial solar eclipse.
  • While moon blocks sunlight it casts a shadow on a part of the earth. Since the earth rotates, the moon’s shadow creates a trail. The trail is known as the path of totality.
  • When the moon blocks the sunlight completely for a few minutes it becomes dark on the earth. It is the time unknown people and animals get confused.
  • The total darkness is a moment for scientists to study the sun’s atmosphere which is called the corona. The corona is very dim and difficult to see because the sun is very bright. During the solar eclipse, the moon gives scientists and the public a glimpse at corona’s beautiful streams and ribbons.

Solar Eclipse 2020: Why solar eclipse is not permanent?

The moon’s orbit is ever-changing, and it grows about 3.8 centimeters larger every year. That means the moon’s orbit takes the moon farther away from the earth and the moon appears smaller from the earth in the sky. The readers should know that the moon’s orbit is not perfectly round. It means the moon is sometimes slightly farther away from the earth and does not create a total solar eclipse.

When the moon’s growing orbit takes it 23,500 km farther away from the earth, the smaller size of the moon will not cover the sun completely and the solar eclipse will not happen for a long time. Due to this reason, the total solar eclipse happens once in more than 600 million years.

What is Solar Eclipse in real life?

In the human body, there are three energy channels known as Sun, Moon, and Sushumna. With initiation from Enlightened Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj and practicing the recitation of Essence Word (SATNAM/ SARNAM), the two channels Sun and Moon merge in the third one. The energy then flows in the channel Shushumna alone and the devotee becomes blissful. The true seeker must go in the refuge of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj for worldly pleasures and salvation.
