Group W Eclipses

An eclipses is a type of syzygy it is when an object crosses between a luminous object and causes a period of shadow on near by planets.

The eclipse of the sun is visible from earth it happens every 18 months. A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun shadows over the moon.solar eclipses are accidents of nature that cause areas of shadow and could be potentially dangerous if the sun was entirely blocked for a long period of time causing a time of cold potentially freezing seas that are facing the sun and are in daylight.

Types of eclipses

There are 4 types of eclipses a
Partial eclipse-A partial eclipse is when only part of the sun is covered by the sun. It occurs when the Sun and Moon are not exactly in line and the Moon only partially obscures the Sun. This phenomenon can usually be seen from a large part of the Earth outside of the track of an annular or total eclipse.
Annular eclipse- An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, surrounding the dark disk of the Moon
Total eclipses-A solar (total) eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. This can happen only at a new moon
Hybrid eclipse-.A hybrid eclipse (also called annular/total eclipse) shifts between a total and annular eclipse. At certain points on the surface of Earth it appears as a total eclipse, whereas at other points it appears as annular. Hybrid eclipses are comparatively rare.
