Photos from the Solar eclipse Viewing in FUTA

 
The Sun is surrounded by eight planets, each of which moves around it in paths that are known as orbits. Some of these planets including the Earth have moons that orbit them. At times, the moons come between the planets and the Sun. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun’s, blocking most of the Sun’s light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region of the Earth thousands of kilometers wide.
