What is the Eastern Hemisphere?
They aren’t that rare. I saw an annular eclipse here in Arizona in 2012.
The opposite half of the earth you’re not standing on depending on which direction you face.
So if you’re facing westward the other half is eastern and vice versa.
Has there ever been a Ring of Fire around Uranus? Asking for a friend.
Was it a burn’n ringOfire?
The Eastern Hemisphere is a geographical term for the half of Earth which is east of the prime meridian (which crosses Greenwich, London, United Kingdom) and west of the antimeridian (which crosses the Pacific Ocean and relatively little land from pole to pole).
If you see the above while watching the eclipse:
1. Get to your eye doctor IMMEDIATELY
2. Stop the Tequila!
