Last Updated on 14 October 2023 IST | Solar eclipse or surya grahan will take place on October 14, 2023 Saturday. Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes in front of the sun and temporarily blocks its light. Today’s solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, often referred to as a “ring of fire” eclipse. This type of eclipse happens when the moon comes between the sun and Earth, but it’s positioned near its farthest point from our planet. NASA explains that due to this greater distance, the moon looks smaller than the sun and doesn’t entirely obscure it. Instead, it covers only the central part of the sun, creating a ring-like appearance with the outer edges of the sun still visible.

How Does a total Solar Eclipse Take Place?
A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, completely covering the Sun’s surface. Individuals positioned within the central region of the Moon’s shadow as it touches Earth will witness a total eclipse. This event leads to a darkening of the sky, akin to twilight. When weather conditions allow, those in the path of a total solar eclipse can observe the Sun’s corona, its outer atmosphere, which is typically hidden by the Sun’s bright face. During a total solar eclipse, viewers are allowed to briefly remove their eclipse glasses (different from regular sunglasses) when the Moon entirely blocks the Sun. The next total solar eclipse in the United States is anticipated on April 8, 2024.
How Does a partial Solar Eclipse Take Place?
In a partial solar eclipse, the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, but the alignment isn’t perfect, resulting in only a portion of the Sun being obscured, creating a crescent shape. When a total or annular solar eclipse occurs, individuals outside the region covered by the Moon’s central shadow will witness a partial solar eclipse.
How Does an Annular Solar Eclipse Take Place?
When the Moon is at or near its furthest point from Earth and passes in front of the Sun, an annular solar eclipse occurs. Due to its greater distance from Earth, the Moon appears smaller than the Sun and does not entirely obscure it. As a result, the Moon appears as a black disc atop a bigger, brighter disc, giving the impression that the Moon is surrounded by a ring. The annular eclipse will occur in the US on October 14, 2023. Due to the curvature of the Earth’s surface, an eclipse’s phase can occasionally change from annular to total as the Moon’s shadow travels around the world. It’s referred to as a hybrid solar eclipse.
