Total Solar eclipse, February 16, 1980 – Cancellation from Japal Rangapur Observatory

A total Solar eclipse occurred on February 16, 1980. A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometers wide.

The telescope at Rangapur has been used for photoelectric observations of binary stars, peculiar stars, pulsating stars, star clusters and also for the spectroscopic study of binary stars and peculiar stars.  The telescope is also used for obtaining scientific information on comets, planetary atmospheres and near Earth Asteroids.  The department obtained two 12-inch telescopes from the UGC-SAP funds.  These telescopes are being used by the students for their practicals and in their research projects.  In addition, a 10 feet radio telescope operating at 10GHZ was installed at Japal-Rangapur Observatory in  1980 for conducting research on the Sun.

Date Of Cancellation:-16.02.1980.
