Solar Eclipse Analemma (Image & copyright: Cenk E. Tezel & Tunç Tezel (TWAN)) Take a picture that includes the Sun in the same place every day & over a year the Sun positions make a figure-8 called an analemma. At northern Winter Solstice the Sun is at the bottom of the analemma. This analemma, shot in Turkey, starting in 2015, includes a total solar eclipse. The base image was taken during totality on 2009-03-29. Mona Evans, “Winter Solstice” www.bellaonline.c...

Asellus Australis (gamma Cancri) and total solar eclipse. In the darkness of a total solar eclipse, stars and planets may be seen during the daytime. Here gamma Cancri is some 0,5 degrees to the left (east) of the totally eclipsed Sun. (Credit: Gote Flodqvist, 1981) Mona Evans, “Solar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...

Diamond and Rubies by Tunç Tezel, Turkey. (Highly Commended) A lingering diamond ring before the beginning of totality on 3rd November 2013, as seen from Pajengo village near Pakwach, Uganda. There was also a thin layer of clouds, which diffused the lights of the diamond and red ring of chromosphere around the Moon.

Hybrid Solar Eclipse 2, by Eugen Kamenew, Germany. People & Space winner. The eclipse began as an annular eclipse at sunrise, but it became total as it crossed the Atlantic. By the time it reached Kenya the Sun was just emerging, creating the dramatic silhouette of the figure on the hill. Mona Evans, "Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2014" www.bellaonline.c...

Headlines in the New York Times November 10, 1919. The results from the English eclipse expeditions confirmed Einstein's predictions in his theory of general relativity. It was sensational. Mona Evans, "Einstein's Eclipse" www.bellaonline.c...

Eclipsed moon with turquoise fringe. 2014-04-15. (Image: Robert & Elisabeth Slobins) Prof Richard Keen says that "most of the light illuminating the Moon passes through the stratosphere, and is reddened by scattering. But light passing through the upper stratosphere penetrates the ozone layer, which absorbs red light & actually makes the passing light ray bluer!" ©Mona Evans, “Lunar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...

Geometry of a solar eclipse. Since the Moon is small compared to Earth its shadow is narrow. Any place where the darker part of the shadow (the umbra) falls would have a total eclipse, but within the outer part of the shadow (the penumbra) the eclipse is only partial.

Phases of the Moon. A solar eclipse can only occur at the new Moon because that's the only time that Sun, Moon and Earth could line up with the Moon blocking the Sun from our view. ©Mona Evans, “Solar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...

If you were on the Moon during a total lunar eclipse, you'd see a total solar eclipse. It might look something like this, with the Earth's nightside faintly shining. (Credit: Hana Gartstein) Mona Evans, "Lunar Eclipses" www.bellaonline.c...

If you were on the Moon during a lunar eclipse, you'd see a solar eclipse. French astronomer and artist Lucien Rudaux imagines the scene. Earth's disk is black here, but except for a very dark eclipse, Earth's night-side would be faintly visible. And the Sun's corona wouldn't be because the Earth's disk would cover it. Mona Evans, "Lunar Eclipses" www.bellaonline.c...

Lunar eclipse geometry. There are two parts to the Earth's shadow: the penumbra and the umbra. The umbra is darker because Earth blocks the Sun's direct rays, but there is some direct sunlight in the penumbra. You would scarcely notice the subtle darkening of the Moon passing through the penumbra. (Credit: Fred Espenak) Mona Evans, "Lunar Eclipses" www.bellaonline.c...

Sun eclipsed by Earth (left) and Moon (right). (Image credit: NASA/SDO) The Solar Dynamics Observatory orbits Earth in such a way that very occasionally it lines up with Earth & Sun (or Moon & Sun) to cause an eclipse. The Moon's shadow is better-defined & more curved than Earth's, because the Moon has no atmosphere, and is smaller and farther away from the Satellite. ©Mona Evans, “Lunar Eclipses” www.bellaonline.c...
