Thousands flock to Australia to witness rare ‘hybrid’ solar eclipse

Thousands of tourists flock to Exmouth on Australia’s west coast to witness a rare ‘hybrid’ solar eclipse. The eclipse was visible at 11:27 am local time on Thursday. At this time, the sky of the city becomes dark for about a minute. The moon casts a wide shadow over an area of ​​40 km.

Many tourists and scientists cheered after seeing this rare sight of solar eclipse. Some refer to it as ‘dreamlike’.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” said Henry, a tourist from the United States. Tom Naber of Canada said, ‘Unbelievable, I cried after watching the eclipse.’

Two ‘hybrid’ solar eclipses usually have a gap of 100 years, say astronomers. A partial solar eclipse was also seen in other parts of the Pacific Ocean.

The eclipse begins at sunrise in the Indian Ocean and ends at sunset in the Pacific Ocean. But this solar eclipse is witnessed by some as total and partial eclipse.

People living in Western Australia, Timor-Leste and West Papua got a good view of this rare solar eclipse.

Earlier this was done in 2013. Space research organization NASA says that 2031 may see another such hybrid solar eclipse.
