INDIANAPOLIS — If you’re an early riser, you’ll have a chance to see a solar eclipse.
On the morning of June 10, a partial solar eclipse will be visible and it will more or less coincide with sunrise, says space.com.
Unlike a total solar eclipse, which happens when the moon passes directly between the earth and the Sun, Thursday’s eclipse will be annular, which only happens when the moon is in its first phase.
During an annular eclipse, the Sun becomes a bright ring (or annulus) of light encircling the moon’s dark silhouette. This is why such an eclipse is also known as a “ring of fire” solar eclipse.
In Indianapolis, the eclipse will be visible at sunrise, which will be at 6:19 a.m. It will end at 6:35 a.m, according to space.com. Because it is a sunrise event, it will appear as though the moon is taking a bite out of the Sun, says NASA.
Wherever you will be, it’s best to review NASA’s eclipse safety practices beforehand. Never look at the Sun without proper eye protection.
