During the new moon, when the lunar disc passes in front of the solar disc, the solar eclipse is confirmed. The solar eclipse can be partial, complete or circular, depending on the situation. A spectacular annular solar eclipse will occur on Thursday, June 10, but only part of it will come from Italy. Here is everything you need to know about when, where, and how to watch unmissable celestial wonders.
Thursday, June 10, one of Astronomical show The most anticipated and fascinating of the year:Solar eclipseUnfortunately, this phenomenon is only part ofItaly It is not even visible from the entire boot; for example, the central and southern regions will actually be cut off, while the northern region will only be affected by this event.In central Umbria, a partial solar eclipse will begin to be perceived, and it will be possible to observe only a very small part Sun disk Covered by passing by Luna, And in the northernmost cities, such as Aosta, Varese, and Trento, it is possible to reach about 5% of the dark sun.Nothing compares to the spectacular events enjoyed in some regions of Canada, Siberia, and Greenland, in the skies of these regions Ring of fire, The longest duration at the best observation point is 3 minutes and 51 seconds. Here is everything about this spectacular celestial wonder.
What is an annular solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs on the lunar disk new moon (New Moon) is in front of Sun One.As seen from the surface of the earth, the apparent size of the two discs is sky Comparable, when they overlap, the moon can completely block the sun (total eclipse) or partially block (partial eclipse). Remember that the moon may be more or less close to the earth, and the size of the lunar disk changes according to its distance; when it is farther away (Apogee) The disc is small and cannot completely cover the sun during a solar eclipse, so it provides life for a spectacular sight Ring of fire An annular solar eclipse, such as the solar eclipse visible in certain parts of the earth on June 10.
When and where will there be an annular solar eclipse
As mentioned above, the date circled on the solar eclipse calendar is Thursday, June 10. Italian League of Amateur Astronomers (Wow) Means that the partial solar eclipse in Italy will be visible along the Tyrrhenian coast north of 42.4° north latitude and the Adriatic coast north of 43.2° north latitude north of 43.2°.In northern cities such as Milan, a partial solar eclipse will begin shortly thereafter 11:30 And will be in 12:18 (The sun’s disc dimmed by 3.5%) and ended around 13:05. In Venice, the astronomy show will start at 11:48 in the morning and will end at 13:05, with an estimated maximum time of 12:25, while in Florence, it will start from 11:52 to 12:49, with an estimated maximum time of 12. :20. As pointed out, the lower the latitude along the boot, the lower the percentage of the solar disk “gnawed” by the earth’s natural satellites. In a virtual line that ideally encompasses cities such as Piombino, Siena, and Rimini, the transit of the moon in front of the sun will cause the stellar disk to dim by only 0.5%. From Perugia down, the solar disk will not be touched by satellites.
How to see an annular solar eclipse
For anyone who wants to try to observe a solar eclipse, it must be remembered that the direct view of the sun Stella Without proper eye protection, it can cause Very severe visual impairment, depending on Totally blind. Ordinary sunglasses and other do-it-yourself methods are not sufficient for direct observation and are dangerous.Also passed telescope Or other improperly equipped optical instruments have the same risk and damage to the instrument.Therefore, it is necessary to turn to specialized stores-such as astronomical/optical instrument stores-which have specialized stores for sale filter, glasses And the sun visor is designed and certified for safe observation of the sun disc.As pointed out This guide Developed by astrophysicists Gianluca Massi, Science Director Virtual telescope project (VTS), the Italian coordinator of Asteroid Day and the ambassador of the International Astronomical Union (UAI) “Dark Sky for All” project, in order to (indirectly) observe this phenomenon, it is also possible to establish a darkroom, “By punching a small hole in a large enough card and using it as a projection’optical’ on the rear screen, about one meter away from the first one.” In this way, you can project the shadow of the sun and observe the “eaten” part of the moon.However, for those who want to enjoy the performance in the most exciting way, you can also follow a Live broadcast Thanks to Masi’s VTS, its collaborators in Canada (from Toronto and other cities) will start broadcasting the observation of the “Ring of Fire” at 11:30 am on June 10th, Italy time.
