Due to the image that appears on the Sun during the eclipse, astronomers call this eclipse the ‘Ring of Fire’.
In the statement, NASA said, “In some places, viewers won’t be able to see this ring around the Moon. Instead, they will experience a partial solar eclipse. This happens when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are not perfectly aligned. The Sun will appear to have a dark shadow on only part of its surface. Viewers in the eastern United States and parts of northern Alaska will see a partial solar eclipse on June 10, along with most of Canada and parts of the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and North Africa. In the United States, the partial eclipse will be visible in parts of the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, and northern Alaska. In most of these locations, the eclipse will occur before, during, and shortly after sunrise. This means viewers must have a clear view of the horizon at sunrise to see the eclipse.”
The event takes place as the first solar eclipse of 2021 and the 16th of the 21st century.
