How Solar Eclipse Will Affect Human Health? Dos, Don’ts And Precautionary Measures To Take During SUN ECLIPSE
01/7 The first solar eclipse of the year
Skywatchers will be treated with a cosmic spectacle on Sunday with the first of the two solar eclipses of the year. On June 21, the Moon will eclipse the Sun to form a “ring of fire” in the sky.
A solar eclipse takes place when the Moon comes in between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the Sun’s rays from reaching the Earth. The solar eclipse taking place will be an Annular Solar Eclipse as the Moon will cover only the centre of the Sun, leaving its outer edges visible, forming a “ring of fire”. An annular eclipse occurs when the Moon is too far away from the Earth to completely hide the Sun.
Eclipses are not considered good even for pregnant women. As per some mythological theories, pregnant women should not step out of their house during the eclipse as it may be harmful to her and her baby. It is said that women who go at this time face difficulty during delivery or their children are born with abnormalities.
Watching solar eclipse directly with the naked eyes can damage your retina and in the worst case, it can even lead to blindness. If you want to view the solar eclipse then use special solar eclipse glasses for it. Many people use sunglasses or photographic negatives, but these things are not effective at all.
