Total eclipse UPSC NOTE


  • Solar eclipses occur when the sun, moon and Earth align. 

  • The moon passes between Earth and sun, temporarily blocking the sun’s light and casting a shadow on Earth.

  • A total solar eclipse is when the moon fully obscures the sun, whereas a partial solar eclipse means it blocks just a portion of the sun’s face.

  • The resulting twilight, with only the sun’s outer atmosphere or corona visible

  • It is never safe to gaze directly at the sun, even when it is partly or mostly covered by the moon. 

  • Special eclipse glasses or pinhole projectors are required to safely view solar eclipses and prevent eye damage. 

  • Failing to take the proper precautions can result in severe eye injury

  • When the last beams of sunlight are about to become obscured, “diamond ring effect” can be seen: The sun’s atmosphere will appear as an illuminated halo, and the last light still visible will look like the diamond of a giant ring

  • As the sunlight decreases even further, an effect known as Baily’s beads will be created by the moon’s rugged terrain. 

  • Tiny “beads” of light will be visible for only a few seconds around the dark moon, as the last bits of sunlight peer through the moon’s mountains and valleys
