Solar Eclipse Of April 29, 2014

An annular solar eclipse will occur on April 29, 2014. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, blocking most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide.

The center of the moon's shadow misses the south Pole of the Earth, but the partial eclipse will be visible from parts of Antarctica and Australia.

Famous quotes containing the words eclipse, april and/or solar:

    He who does something at the head of one Regiment, will eclipse him who does nothing at the head of a hundred.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    lady through whose profound and fragile lips
    the sweet small clumsy feet of April came

    into the ragged meadow of my soul.
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)

    The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation, and the credit of truth and honesty is as safe; nor have I any fear that a skeptical bias can be given by leaning hard on the sides of fate, of practical power, or of trade, which the doctrine of Faith cannot down-weigh.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
