When will the next eclipses be recorded in 2024?

The total solar eclipse on April 8 captured the world’s attention as it darkened part of North America for a few minutes, but two more eclipses will be recorded later in 2024.

This was the first time this solar eclipse occurred in this area of ​​the planet in almost seven years, and it was very special as it will not be recorded again until 2044.

The residents of Mexico, the United States and Canada were lucky enough to witness this solar eclipse directly on their territory; while millions of people were able to watch it through live broadcasts.

A Solar eclipse It occurs when the moon moves between the sun and our planet, casting a shadow on Earth by blocking all or part of the light.

In this regard, this astronomical phenomenon is very special and several myths have been built about it throughout history.

When will the next solar eclipse be?

The next solar eclipse will be recorded on September 17th and 18th. This time it will be partial lunar eclipse which will be visible across much of Europe, Asia, North America and South America.

In this phenomenon, our planet crosses the orbit between the sun and moon, creating a shadow on the lunar surface. However, this time the Earth will not be able to completely cover the full moon.

In addition, South America will also be privileged this year because October 2nd You will be able to think about a annular solar eclipse in Chile and Argentina.

This phenomenon, known as the “ring of fire,” occurs when the moon does not completely cover the sun and a ring remains visible around the star.

What are eclipses and what types are there?

Every year, eclipses occur on Earth due to a process of our planet aligning with the Sun and Moon.

In this way there are two types of Eclipses: Lunar and solar eclipses. The first occurs when the Earth comes between the sun and moon, obscuring their surface.

This phenomenon only occurs during the full moon, when our natural satellite enters the planet’s shadow zone.

“During a lunar eclipse, the Earth blocks sunlight from reaching the moon. This means that the full moon disappears completely at night as Earth’s shadow covers it,” explains NASA.

Depending on the cone of shadow created by the Earth, there can be different types of lunar eclipses: total, partial and penumbra.

Solar eclipses

The Solar eclipses They occur when the moon comes between the sun and our planet, blocking its rays from reaching its surface.

In this case, the moon projects its shadow onto the Earth, darkening the area where it is projected for a few minutes.

“This total solar eclipse occurs somewhere on Earth about every year and a half.” “A partial solar eclipse, when the moon does not completely cover the sun, occurs at least twice a year somewhere on Earth,” NASA said.

In this way, not everyone has the opportunity to see solar eclipses since they are not very common.

When it happens, you have to be in the sunny part of the planet and therefore you can only see them directly in very few places.

Additionally, safety is a top priority when viewing a solar eclipse as it can cause eye damage if observed directly. Solar eclipses are divided into three types: total, annular and partial.

According to the space agency, it takes about 375 years for a solar eclipse to be recorded for a few minutes at the same location on the planet.

Also in 2024 there will be two eclipses that will attract the attention of millions of people on the planet.
