About the Solar Eclipse:
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. Nepal will also witness partial solar eclipse on thursday 26 december from 8:43 am to 11:33 am in Kathmandu,from 8:38 to 11:19 am in Mahendranagar,8:48 am to 11:27 am in Bhadrapur.The annular solar eclipse is supposed to form a beautiful fire ring that should not be witness through naked eyes.
A solar eclipse can only take place at the phase of new moon, when the moon passes directly between the sun and Earth and its shadows fall upon Earth’s surface. But whether the alignment produces a total solar eclipse, a partial solar eclipse or an annular solar eclipse depends on several factors.
The fact that an eclipse can occur at all is a fluke of celestial mechanics and time. Since the moon formed about 4.5 billion years ago, it has been gradually moving away from Earth (by about 1.6 inches, or 4 centimeters per year). Right now the moon is at the perfect distance to appear in our sky exactly the same size as the sun, and therefore block it out. But this is not always true.
