What is a complete photo voltaic eclipse?
A complete photo voltaic eclipse happens when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth and casts its shadow on our house planet. A shadow consists of two parts—a darkish inside circle where all of the daylight is blocked, known as the umbra; and an outer zone of the shadow that blocks solely half of daylight, known as the penumbra.
During a complete eclipse of the Sun, the Moon covers the whole photo voltaic disk, whereas in partial and annular photo voltaic eclipses, the Moon blocks solely a component of the Sun.
This upcoming eclipse shall be of 1.02 magnitude, which suggests at the time of the most eclipse, the Sun shall be fully hidden by the shadow of the Moon. This ‘totality’ is predicted to last for two minutes, 10 seconds.
