Hybrid Eclipse Viewing 2013
PHYSICS DEPARTMENT, MAKERERE UNIVERSITY IN
CONJUCTION WITH MINISTRY OF TOURISM
What is a Hybrid Solar Eclipse? Solar Eclipses
occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and
the Earth and directly blocks the light from the
Sun. Because the moon is located between the Sun
and Earth the dark side of the moon is facing
Earth and is in a New Moon phase. Like a Lunar
Eclipse there are a few different types of Solar
Eclipse depending on the moon's position.

Introduction
  • Planets (Like Earth) revolve around the Sun as
    their Focus Keplers Law of Gravitation.
  • The Earth rotates about its axis to complete a
    day (24 Hours) hence the Day and Night occurrence
    !
  • The Earth revolves around the Sun to complete a
    Year (365/6 days) hence the Seasons Winter and
    Summer towards the Poles.
  • The Moon revolves around the Earth with one
    complete revolution constituting a Month .
  • The path descried by a planet is an Orbit.

Eclipses Solar and Lunar
  • There has long been confusion about exactly who
    gets in front of whom during an eclipse.
  • Eclipses are named for the body that is being
    darkened by a shadow, either totally or
    partially.
  • If you have a Solar Eclipse, the Earth is covered
    by a shadow.
  • If you have a Lunar Eclipse, the Moon will be
    covered by a shadow.
  • A Solar Eclipse occurs when the New Moon comes
    between the Earth and the Sun.

A Combination of these two along the same path
Constitute a Hybrid Solar Eclipse

This is to Certify that
Benon Fred TWINAMASIKO
Has witnessed the Total Solar Eclipse as part of
the Hybrid Eclipse 2013 at Owiny Primary School,
Nebbi District, UGANDA on Sunday, November 03,
2013 after attending a Sensitization Lecture
about the Eclipse Phenomenon. Uganda is located
on the Equator and is the Pearl of Africa, thank
you for being part of the historical event,
please kindly come back another time in future to
