Types of Surya Grahan

Partial Solar Eclipse
When the Moon partially obscures the Sun’s disk, casting only its penumbra on Earth, we call this phenomenon a partial solar eclipse.
Annular Solar eclipse
When the Sun and the Moon are closer, the Moon fails to eclipse the whole Sun. For this reason, the outer part of the Sun remains visible, forming a ring of fire. We call this phenomenon an Annular Solar Eclipse.
Total Solar Eclipse
A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers the whole of the Sun, casting a shadow on Earth.
Hybrid Solar Eclipse
When there is a transition of the annular solar eclipse to a total solar eclipse or the other way around, then it is called the Hybrid Solar Eclipse.
