SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) — Thursday morning CNY was treated to a partial solar eclipse!
What is a solar eclipse? It’s when the moon is between Earth and the Sun and casts a shadow on earth.
The area with a full shadow is called the Umbrea, and the areas with a partial shadow (where CNY was located in the most recent solar eclipse) is called the Penumbra.
