A A new annular solar eclipse It will be visible tomorrow in many parts of the United States, including parts of Argentina, and will be able to observe the astronomical phenomenon at 3:55 p.m., which means that some northern states and the province of Buenos Aires will be partially visible. .
Privileged places to view the eclipse from the United States are Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and New Mexico because they are in direct line with the event, so they can appreciate its first phases if the weather permits.
The eclipse will then cross Central America, reach its final phase over South America and end with sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. Mexico, Belize, Honduras, Panama, Colombia and Brazil will also see the annular solar eclipse.
An annular eclipse will occur in Argentina, Chile, Brazil, and Venezuela at 3:55 p.m.; 13:55 in Peru, Colombia and Ecuador.
At that time, and a few minutes, Light from the Sun disappears when it is covered by the Moon, which appears to be night, and for this to happen, the Moon must be located near zero latitude, the apparent path of the ecliptic. A sun without latitude.
when”Ring of Fire“The sky will darken after an eclipse, but not to the extent of a total eclipse. It is important to have adequate eye protection to avoid possible injuries during all phases of the event.
Experts from the National University of La Plata (UNLP) and Konizet suggested that the Sun cannot be seen with the naked eye or through X-rays, and taught how to make a “camera obscura” with paper and cardboard to observe this phenomenon.
“In this type of eclipse, the Sun is covered by only a large or small fraction, depending on how far your city moves from where the annular eclipse was observed, as we can see from La Plata and the surrounding areas. At 4:44 p.m. the Moon covers only 5% of the Sun. ” explained astronomer Maria Cecilia Scalia, extension secretary for UNLP’s Faculty of Astronomical Sciences and Geophysics.
The astronomer, who is part of the “Astrochica” extension project, suggested, “Don’t look at the Sun with the naked eye or through sunglasses, X-rays, etc. It can seriously damage your vision.”
“Do not use the old solar filters placed in the eyepieces of telescopes, which have been discontinued long ago as they are dangerous,” the expert pointed out.
