Solar Eclipse Ring June 10, 2021. Is it observable in Indonesia?
Eclipse The Sun Ring is one type of eclipse that often occurs. So named because this eclipse looks like a ‘ring of fire’ when it peaks.
Reported by the National Institute of Aviation and Space (LAPAN), this solar eclipse will occur on June 10, 2021. Is it observed in Indonesia? Let’s find out below!
1. The position of the sun, moon, and earth is aligned
Solar eclipses occur when the sun, moon, and earth are in an aligned position. This will cause the sun to block out to get to earth because the moon is in the middle of both objects.
However, the Eclipse is different from other types of solar eclipses. This is because the moon’s condition is in the apogee phase, its furthest point with Earth, so that the sun will not close completely. When it reaches its peak, the eclipse appears to form a ‘ring of fire’ if observed from Earth.
2. Not observed in Indonesia
LAPAN reported that the Solar Eclipse of the Ring on June 10, 2021 was not observed in Indonesia. According to reports, this solar eclipse can only be observed perfectly in the region of Ellesmere Island and Baffin, Canada, as well as the Siberian Region, Russia.
Moreover, a Partial Solar Eclipse will be visible in some areas of Greendland, Iceland, Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and Western China. The best time to watch the eclipse is at 17.43 WIB, 18.43 WIB, and 19.43 WIT.
3. The peak lasts for 3.5 minutes (Solar Eclipse Ring)
Reported by Space, the peak of this ring of fire phenomenon will last for 3 minutes 51 seconds. Meanwhile, the total duration reaches 5 hours, starting from 4.12.16 to 9.11.16 Eastern Standard Time (EST).
The path that the eclipse will travel is 7,700 kilometers. As discussed earlier, the areas included in this route are some areas in Central America, Europe, to Central Asia.
4. Is an annual astronomical phenomenon (Solar Eclipse Ring)
Solar eclipses are actually an annual astronomical phenomenon. True, it will always happen every year, but the location is different. It is rare for an eclipse to occur in the same location.
Note that there are usually two to five solar eclipses in a calendar year. In 2021, there will be only two, the first on June 21, 2021 and the second on December 14, 2021.
5. Cannot be observed with the naked eye
If a lunar eclipse is safely observed with the naked eye, it is also the case with a solar eclipse that requires glasses with an eclipse filter to observe it. This is because sunlight can hurt the eyes to the point of fatality.
Reported by Time and Date, ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by the sun can burn the retina of the eye. As a result, the eyes will be permanently injured and can even cause blindness.
Those are some facts about the Solar Eclipse ring june 10, 2021. Even if it is not observed in Indonesia, you can still see it through live streaming. Hopefully this information can increase your knowledge, yes!
