A solar eclipse means Moon blocking the Sun from view. There are 3 types of solar eclipses: total, partial, and annular.

•Total solar eclipses are when the Moon completely covers the Sun. The Moon’s shadow is cast on Earth.

•Partial solar eclipses are when the Moon covers part of the Sun.

•Annular solar eclipses are when the Moon is in front of the Sun, but does not completely cover it. The Sun looks like a ring.

Websites to Keep Track of the Next Solar Eclipse

There are websites dedicated to helping people stay updated about the upcoming solar eclipses. Their goal is to provide accurate, timely information about eclipses so that people can make the most of them. Each of these websites has different information that can be helpful for planning to see the eclipse.

Some of the best websites to stay updated about the next solar eclipse are:

nasa has educational resources about solar and lunar eclipses, as well as information about eclipse-viewing events. As NASA is a government website, it is the most reliable source of information. However, other sites dedicated to eclipses are even better for regularly tracking the event.

timeanddate, for example, has a countdown to the eclipse and detailed maps of where it will be visible. The website also has an interactive eclipse path map that shows the eclipse path and times for major cities.

eclipsewise has information about the Saros cycle, which is the repeating pattern of eclipses. Despite classic old-fashioned look, the website provides reliable data about upcoming eclipses.


This website provides live updates of the progress of the eclipse as well as an interactive map showing where it is visible. Apart from eclipses, this website also offers information about all other sky events.

Solar Eclipse’s Effects

In fact, it’s not just the Sun that’s affected during a solar eclipse – we are too. How? Well, they say that our solar system is like one big organism, with the Sun at its heart. So, when the Sun’s light is suddenly cut off, it has an effect on us. Some people claim to feel a sense of foreboding or unease. Some animals behave oddly, as if they sense something is about to happen. And there’s anecdotal evidence that solar eclipses can trigger migraines, anxiety attacks and even epileptic seizures in some people.

So, next time there’s a solar eclipse, remember to:

1. Find a good viewpoint.

2. Use proper eye protection.

3. Be prepared to take some amazing photos!

4. Enjoy the experience!
