NASA has released images showing the first eclipse of 2021.
According to News i and quoted by Space, The first solar eclipse of 2021 occurred on Thursday, June 10, coinciding with the 20th of Khordad.
The eclipse was more visible in various parts of Canada, Greenland and Siberia, but in many parts of the world, the eclipse was only partially observed.
In many areas, the eclipse coincided with the sunrise, creating a special and eerie landscape.
NASA photographers Bill Ingalls and Aubrey Gemignani were ready to capture this beautiful phenomenon with their cameras.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon is in its trajectory between the earth and the sun and the sunlight is completely covered. But when the moon does not completely cover the sun and a bright part of the sunlight is seen, a “circular eclipse” occurs. As a result, a ring of fire can be seen around the dark circle of the moon.
A circular eclipse, like a total eclipse, is only visible in some parts of the earth.
The next solar eclipse will be on December 4, 2021.
