People thronged to see the solar eclipse
Huge crowds turn out to watch a total solar eclipse in Exmouth, Australia. People watched the eclipse with their binoculars and telescopes. By 9:40 it was completely dark. This solar eclipse is said to be very rare and hybrid. Apart from Australia, the effect of this solar eclipse was also seen in Indonesia.
Professor Sabine Belstead of the University of Western Australia said it was gradually getting dark before the total eclipse. During this, the people who came to see the eclipse became completely calm. The temperature also started decreasing and the flow of air stopped.
Scientists from other countries saw the solar eclipse
People from other countries also came to see the solar eclipse. Many scientists were also included in these. Astronomical photographer Catherine told that scientists from different parts of the world came to Australia to see the eclipse.
He said- When everyone was taking out their belongings to watch the solar eclipse, I started seeing the movement of birds. He said that as it started getting dark the birds started hiding. He immediately calmed down.
Most solar eclipses occur on new moon days, because then the moon is closer to the Earth. Every 18 months a solar eclipse occurs in some part of the world.
