Ring Of Fire To Be Seen Saturday Night
Ring of Fire Eclipse will be seen tomorrow. This is when the moon will pass directly between the sun and the earth.
According to AccuWeather:
Just hours after the official start of summer, the moon will pass directly between the Earth and the sun in a celestial alignment known as a ‘ring of fire' solar eclipse.
This weekend's eclipse will begin about six hours after the June solstice, which occurs on Saturday, June 20, at 5:43 p.m. EDT (Sunday, June 21, 3:13 a.m. IST). Only people across Africa and Asia will be able to witness it with their own eyes, but people from all around the globe can watch the event live in the broadcast below, which will be hosted by Slooh.
This ring of light around the moon during the height of the eclipse is how it became known as a ‘ring of fire' eclipse.
It is extremely important to use proper eye protection throughout the entire eclipse as the moon will never completely block out all of the light from the sun.
Not using proper solar filters or eclipse glasses can result in permanent eye damage.
