How to View Tonight’s Unique Hybrid Solar Eclipse

This week, Skywatchers may get the opportunity to see a hybrid solar eclipse in various regions of the planet.

The forthcoming celestial spectacle, which will take place on Wednesday or Thursday depending on where you live, is particularly noteworthy since it is a hybrid solar eclipse, the rarest type and only 4.8% of all solar eclipses, according to NASA.

Total solar eclipses, partial solar eclipses, annular solar eclipses, and hybrid solar eclipses are the four different types.

A partial eclipse produces a crescent-shaped shadow, whereas a total eclipse occurs when the moon totally conceals the sun. When the moon is at its greatest distance from Earth, it forms an annular eclipse, which hides the sun and produces a striking “ring of fire.”

The annular and complete phases of an eclipse can occasionally alternate due to the curvature of the Earth’s surface. It’s referred to as a hybrid solar eclipse.

Australia and parts of Asia make for the greatest viewing areas for this week’s hybrid solar eclipse. You can view a live feed of the eclipse online if you’re not in that region of the world, though.
