Nigeria To Experience Total Solar Eclipse On August 21

A solar eclipse (Annular) occurred last February 26, 2017 the next solar eclipse (Total) would be on Monday, August 21, 2017. 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. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometers wide. According to Space. com, this eclipse is the 22nd of the 77 members of Saros series 145, the one that also produced the solar eclipse of August 11, 1999. Members of this series are increasing in duration. The longest eclipse in this series will occur on June 25, 2522 and last for seven minutes and 12 seconds. The eclipse will have a magnitude of 1. 0306 and will be visible from a narrow corridor through the United States.

It will be the first total solar eclipse visible from the southeastern United States since the solar eclipse of March 7, 1970. A partial solar eclipse will be seen from the much broader path of the Moon’s penumbra, including all of North America, northern South America, Western Europe, and Africa. Experts caution that the only safe time to look at the sun without special eclipse glasses is during totality when the surface of the sun is completely blocked by the moon. Also, long-term power cuts, destruction of electronic devices and increased cancer risks are worrying consequences of the Earth being hit by powerful solar eruptions. New research suggests these coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are on a collision course with Earth and are much harder to predict than previously thought. The huge ‘sneezes’ of solar plasma can reach our planet in one to three days and could have a devastating effect on life, as we know it.
