This is how the annular solar eclipse can be seen in Spain

Tomorrow, June 10 (Thursday), the annular solar eclipse can be seen in Spain , as reported by the National Geographic Institute. The eclipse will also be visible from Europe, North America and Asia. Thus, it will start in the Atlantic Ocean, at a latitude of 23 degrees, and will culminate in Xinjiang (China). It will have a total duration of 299 minutes, that is, approximately five hours.

Annulment phase

The annularity phase of the eclipse will begin in Canada (north of Thunder Bay), continuing through the Baffin Islands (Nunavut) and reaching Greenland. Afterward, you will cross the Arctic and eventually reach the Far Eastern federal district (Russia).

The duration of this phase will be 104 minutes (about one hour and three quarters).

On the other hand, the annular eclipse will reach its maximum point at 12:42 (Spanish time) and will last a total of 3 minutes and 51 seconds. In addition, the width of its shadow, as collected by the National Geographic Institute, will reach 500 kilometers just at that moment.

The eclipse can be seen in Spain as partial. In Madrid, the eclipse will begin at 11:01 a.m. and end at 12:29 p.m., having a total duration of 88 minutes (just under an hour and a half).

How do solar eclipses occur?

The solar eclipse is a phenomenon in which the solar light is totally or partially hidden when a star comes between the Sun and the observer (the Moon in this case). In addition, they can be classified as total, annular or partial.

Sometimes, the Moon can completely cover the disk of the Sun, being visible only from some parts of the planet. However, sometimes the Moon does not completely cover the Sun, so it becomes a partial eclipse (for everyone).

Also, because eclipses require an almost identical alignment by the three stars, they occur very rarely throughout the year. In fact, it takes about a month for the Moon to go around the Earth, so if both planes coincide, there will be 12 eclipses of the Sun and 12 of the Moon each year.

Last visible solar eclipse in Spain

As stated by the National Geographic Institute, the last visible partial solar eclipse in Spain took place on August 21, 2017. However, it did not occur in optimal conditions, as it occurred during sunset.

The next one will be seen on October 25, 2022, in the northwest of the country and the Balearic Islands. Likewise, the next solar eclipse (as a total) In Spain can be seen on August 12, 2026. On the other hand, on January 26, 2028 an annular eclipse can be seen in the country.

The main problem to carry out medical research is to have willing volunteers for it. And if they come out for free, much better. This is the story of unethical behavior in medical research.
