On the 26th of this month, Tianyu will stage a spectacular solar eclipse. Astronomy experts said that during this solar eclipse, the whole of China can be observed partial solar eclipse, and the further south of the eclipse (the moon covers the diameter of the sun) the greater. Solar eclipses occur when the sun, moon, and Earth line up in a straight line and the moon is in between. The eclipse is divided into total, pericycle and partial eclipse, if the moon is far away from the earth, and the sun is closer to the earth, the moon’s sphere of view is small and can not completely cover the sun, a solar eclipse will occur.

When the solar eclipse occurs, the sun in the sky becomes a ring, and the golden glow is like a ‘golden ring’.
Shi Zhicheng, a member of the Chinese Astronomical Society and director of the Tianjin Astronomical Society, said the solar eclipse will begin at 10:29:50 bsterbeijing on the 26th and end at 16:05:43, after more than five hours. The anicycle begins in the Middle East, through the southern tip of India, Sri Lanka, into Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and other countries, and finally ends in the western Pacific. The average width of the pericycle belt is about 115 kilometers, and the longest time you see the eclipse can be seen in about 3 minutes and 40 seconds.
“At about 10:56, the moon and half-shadow entered the Ali region of Tibet, and then the moon and half-shadow swept across the whole of China to the northeast, and china could see a partial solar eclipse of varying degrees, of which Hainan had the largest eclipse, at 0.499; After 15:37, the moon and half shadow left our country from Hainan Province, and for our country, the eclipse lasted more than 4 hours. Shi Zhicheng said.
Astronomy experts said that although not as spectacular as the total solar eclipse and the solar eclipse, but the partial eclipse is also wonderful, when the sun is missing a corner, as if really by the legendary dog bite.
