For the eclipse chasers Christmas, this year will be a couple of hours late. The reason for this is the final solar eclipse.
The eclipse this year won’t be the same as the one back on August 21, 2017. That is known as the ‘Great American Eclipse,’ and this one won’t be visible from North America.
The Solar Eclipse will begin at 03:43 am according to the Universal Time, precisely on December 26, the Annular Solar Eclipse.
The astrologists say that during the year 2020, the annular solar eclipse will be a little bit tricky, at it will last a couple of seconds. For example, in Ethiopia, the eclipse will last 61 seconds, in Oman 37 seconds, or Tibet only 23 seconds.
Because for sure, there will be people watching the eclipse from the edge so that they will see the crown of the Sun and that will be white and hot.
If you are asking yourself when will be the next annular solar eclipse that will be visible in North America, well, you are not the only one.
The eclipse in August 2017 will remain a precursor to a golden age of eclipses. But, as one of the biggest and the most important eclipses in America is expected to happen on April 8, 2024.
During this eclipse, people from twelve states across the US can see it. But, let’s not rush. Before this eclipse, there will be two more.
The first eclipse will be in Canada in 2021, and the other one in the southwest US.
The first one will happen on June 10, 2021. This event will occur right after a total lunar ‘blood moon,’ and it will be a 94% coverage of the Sun’s surface. It will be visible in Ontario at sunrise, northern Quebec, Greenland, and north-eastern Russia.
People who chase eclipses may be seen in the planes.
The second annular solar eclipse is happening on October 14, 2023. It will bring 95% coverage of the Sun’s surface. People from Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico would be able to see it.
A lot of eclipse chasers and other people often travel around the world to see the eclipses and take a picture of them. All in all, the annular solar eclipses are not as exciting as the total solar eclipse, for which the eclipse-chasers will travel anywhere on the planet to see it.
