On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined thousands of enthusiasts to witness annual solar eclipse, the last spectacular, celestial treat of the decade. PM Modi took to Twitter to share his experience. “Like many Indians, I was enthusiastic about #solareclipse2019. Unfortunately, I could not see the Sun due to cloud cover but I did catch glimpses of the eclipse in Kozhikode and other parts on live stream. Also enriched my knowledge on the subject by interacting with experts,” PM Modi said on the micro-blogging site. Along with the tweet, PM Modi also posted three pictures.
According to NASA, solar eclipses happen when the Moon lines up just right with the Sun and Earth. Though the Moon orbits Earth about once a month, the tilt in its orbit means that it’s relatively rare for the Moon to pass right in line between the Sun and Earth — and those are the conditions that create an eclipse. Depending on the alignment, the Moon can create a partial, total or annular solar eclipse. During an annular eclipse, the Moon’s apparent size is too small to completely cover the face of the Sun, creating a “ring of fire” around the Moon’s edge during the eclipse.
