The year 2020 is astounding for all the space lovers. This year is full of exciting space events. We are not even at the half of the month and get to see the 3 Super Moon in a row, starting with the March’s Full Worm Moon and April’s Full Pink Moon. We are continued with Penumbra Lunar eclipse on 6 and 5 of June and an Annular Solar eclipse on June 21.
The year 2020 will have six eclipses in total, 4 Lunar Eclipse, and 2 Solar Eclipse. But there will be a difference in the pattern of both the Eclipse. The Lunar Eclipse will be Partial, and the Solar eclipses will be Annular.
What is Lunar Eclipse?
Lunar eclipses occur while Earth’s shadow blocks the Solar’s mild, which otherwise reflects off the moon. There are three types total, partial and penumbral with the most dramatic being a total Lunar eclipse, wherein Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon.
What is the Solar Eclipse?
A solar eclipse takes place while the moon gets between the Earth and the Sub, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. A solar eclipse can most effectively take area on the phase of the new moon when the moon passes at once among the sun and Earth, and its shadows fall upon Earth’s floor. However, whether the alignment produces a total solar eclipse, a partial solar eclipse, or an annular solar eclipse depends on several factors.
