What will happen during eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves in front of the Sun as seen from a location on Earth. During a solar eclipse, it gets dimer and dimmer outside as more and more of the Sun is covered by the Moon. During a total eclipse, the entire Sun is covered for a few minutes and it becomes very dark outside.

What is a ring of fire eclipse?
A “ring of fire” or annular eclipse happens when the moon is near its farthest point from Earth during an eclipse, so the moon appears smaller than the sun in the sky and doesn’t block the whole solar disk.
Why solar eclipse is dangerous?
Exposing your eyes to the sun without proper eye protection during a solar eclipse can cause “eclipse blindness” or retinal burns, also known as solar retinopathy. This exposure to the light can cause damage or even destroy cells in the retina (the back of the eye) that transmit what you see to the brain.
Why sun rays are harmful during eclipse?
When there is limited light, the iris expands the size of the pupil to allow more light into the eye to see. The damage occurs because the eye is fooled by the celestial phenomenon and allows a potentially dangerous amount of UV light into the eye, which has the very real capacity to damage the retina.
Why can you see a corona during a total solar eclipse?
The corona is usually hidden by the bright light of the Sun’s surface. During a total solar eclipse, the moon passes between Earth and the Sun. When this happens, the moon blocks out the bright light of the Sun. The glowing white corona can then be seen surrounding the eclipsed Sun.
Is a lunar eclipse?
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned (in syzygy) with Earth between the other two, and only on the night of a full moon.
Can you see the ring of fire in Louisiana?
Unfortunately, residents of Louisiana will be at a disadvantage for this particular viewing – but not out of luck entirely. According to CBS News, the annular solar eclipse will be seen with the naked eye from lots of places around the globe – just not Louisiana.
What is eclipse of the sun?
When the Moon is in a direct line between the Sun and the Earth, the Moon’s disk-shaped outline appears to cover the Sun’s bright surface, or photosphere. The part of the Earth directly in the Moon’s shadow sees a total eclipse of the Sun; areas around it see a partial eclipse.
