ECLIPSES OF SUN in a few days, write down the DATE. The REGIONS of ITALY where it will be VISIBLE, TIMETABLE and RISKS
A partial solar eclipse is comingMake a note of this date: Thursday 10 June.
There will be aeclipse of the sun that in Italy will result partial, but that in some parts of the world it will be total: eye, in particular, a Canada, Greenland and Russia).
But what is an eclipse? It is a optical phenomenon, observed from Earth, of darkening of all or part of the solar disk by the Moon, which occurs during the new moon.
It’s a quite rare event as the Sun, Moon and Earth must be perfectly aligned in that order; that is, it is possible only when the Moon, whose orbit is inclined by five degrees with respect to the ecliptic, intersects the latter, at a point called node.
When the node is between the Earth and the Sun, the shadow of the Moon passes in some points of the earth’s surface and we witness a solar eclipse. If, on the other hand, the node is on the opposite side, a lunar eclipse occurs.
Thursday 10th June half of Italy will therefore be able to witness a small solar eclipse: our star will in fact be darkened of 10-12%. Not much, it is true, but it is a rather fascinating phenomenon nonetheless.
As shown in the attached map all northern regions and part of those central will be able to witness this phenomenon. At the Center it will be possible to observe it from all the provinces of the Tuscany, dall’Umbria (a large part of Perugia) and from Market (Ancona, Macerata and Pesaro).
Instead, it will be invisible from the rest of Italy.
START TIME. Depending on the city we live in (those who live further north will see the solar disk cover a little more) the starting time will vary: in fact, it will pass from 9.28 of Aosta all 10.07 of Ancona.
ATTENTION. Should not be NEVER look directly at the Sun in your instrument (camera, smartphone, telescope or telescope), if not adequately protected by special filters. You could in fact run into permanent damage to eyesight.
