FIRST SOLAR ECLIPSE 2014: WILL TRANSFORM SUN INTO RING OF FIRE



On April 29, 2014, we will experience an Annulus Ring of Fire or Solar (New Moon) Eclipse. Tuesday’s solar eclipse is known as an “annular” — rather than “total” — lunar eclipse. That’s because Tuesday’s eclipse will occur when the moon is close to its farthest distance from the Earth, making it too small to cover the sun completely. The resulting effect looks like a ring of fire, called an “annulus,” appears around the silhouette of the moon.

The solar eclipse occurs at 06:14 on 29th April 2014 

This Solar Eclipse is an annular eclipse. Annular means ‘little ring’. Due to the Moon’s orbit, it will appear slightly smaller than the Sun so when it passes across the face of the Sun, the eclipse will appear rather like a ring of fire. This eclipse belongs to Saros cycle 148 and will be visible from parts of Antarctica and Australia.
