Solar eclipse this Sunday. Precautions and some tips

Solar eclipse this Sunday. Precautions and some tips
Ignacio Zara

Solar eclipse. This Sunday, November 3 2013, we’ll have a short solar eclipse. The celestial event is known as a hybrid solar eclipse, a rare event in which the Moon blocks most of the Sun for some regions on Earth, but covers the star entirely from others. Anyway, an incredible experience for anyone.

Astronomers believe the best place to watch it, it’s the Gulf of Guinea, where the Moon will hide the entire solar surface, but it will last only for a minute and four seconds.

In Europe and America, it will be short and rare. Latitudes near the tropics are the best. Then, in Europe the best point will be the Canary Islands and in North America, Florida.

Precautions and tips:

You should never look at the Sun without proper protection. You have to use approved filters and indirectly observe the eclipse by projecting the Sun in a cardboard or white surface.

To appreciate the eclipse will not be necessary to use a telescope. Our eyes (using appropriate filters) can notice it.

The observation without filters can cause instant blindness and irreparable damage to the eye. Never use negatives, tinted windows, CDs … because they do not protect from ultraviolet rays.

In any case, you should look at the Sun for more than 30 seconds at a time and making numerous breaks .

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
