Solar Eclipse | The Dr. Binocs Show | Educational Videos For Kids

Hey! Where did the lights go? Is it night already? No Dr. Binocs, something just
hid the Sun. It’s scaring me. Oh, don’t worry buddy,
this is nothing but the Eclipse! Here, take these glasses! Hello friends! Thanks for passing by. As you can see, the Sun’s got hidden
and it’s really dark out here. Do you know what it is? Don’t worry, it is nothing
but the Solar Eclipse! Come, let me tell you something
about the Solar Eclipse today. Zoom In. A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon comes in between
the Earth and the Sun causing a shadow of the Moon
to fall on certain portions of the Earth. From these locations, it appears as
if the Sun has gone dark. Since the Moon is very small in front
of the Sun, it only blocks a part of it. Hence, a Solar Eclipse cannot be seen
from every part of the Earth, but only from the locations
where the shadow of the Moon falls. So buddy,
no reason to get scared now, is it? No Dr. Binocs, not at all! The three major parts
during a Solar Eclipse are Umbra, Antumbra, and Penumbra. The umbra is the portion
of the Moon’s shadow where the Moon completely covers the Sun. This is when the Total Solar Eclipse occurs, where you cannot see the Sun at all. Antumbra is the area beyond the umbra. Here the Moon is completely
in front of the Sun, but doesn’t cover the entire Sun. The outline of the Sun can be seen around
the shadow of the Moon. And that is when you see
the Annular Solar Eclipse! Penumbra is the area of the shadow where only a portion of the Moon
is in front of the Sun. This is when the Partial Solar Eclipse occurs, which let’s you see only a part of the Sun. You could see how the Solar Eclipse works,
in your homes! Take these two balls,
the bigger blue ball is the Earth and the smaller white ball
will represent the Moon. Place them like this and light up the torch. The torch will be our Sun. There there, you just got a
home-made Solar Eclipse! Amazing, isn’t it? One should never watch the
Solar Eclipse with bare eyes because of the harmful UV rays. The longest a total Solar Eclipse
can last is seven and a half minutes. So now if day suddenly turns into night, you would know it is the Solar Eclipse. This is me Zooming out. Tune in next time for more fun facts!
