An annular “Ring Of Fire” solar decline occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun at a time when the moon is at or close to its furthest point from our earth.
“Ring Of Fire” Solar Eclipse Fascinates Crowds Across US, South America:
Rare’ Ring Of Fire’ Solar decline Fascinates Crowds Across US, South America Hundreds of observers in sunglasses gathered to watch the moon glide across the sun
Campeche, Mexico Thousands of people across the Americas peered at the welkin on Saturday to witness a rare miracle known as an annular .
Solar decline, when the moon passes in front of the sun, shortly producing the appearance of a” ring of fire” in the sky. ” It’s one of those effects you can not miss,” said Oscar Lopez, 26, who travelled from Mexico City to the southern Mexican megacity of Campeche to see the decline.” It’s amazing. We are really lucky as mortal beings to be suitable to witness these effects.
US space agency NASA said the decline was following a path from the US Pacific Northwest over California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, crossing over corridor of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia and Brazil before ending at evening in the Atlantic Ocean.
Lopez and his family were among hundreds of observers wearing sunglasses who gathered to watch the moon sluggishly glide across the face of the morning sun in Campeche, a graphic colonizer- period megacity on the western edge of the Yucatan promontory.
An annular solar decline occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun at a time when the moon is at or close to its furthest point from our earth. It doesn’t fully obscure the face of the sun, unlike in a total solar decline.
