What If

1 day ago

a total solar eclipse is one of the most impressive sites in our universe as rare as they are they don't just happen on Earth on some planets they occur every single day today we're going to take you throughout the solar system to experience what a solar eclipse is like on different planets from a triple solar eclipse on Jupiter to the weirdness of a Mars solar eclipse join us as we take you on a journey to experience every solar eclipse in our solar system but first what is a solar eclipse well
a total solar eclipse on Earth happens when our moon passes between us and the sun blocking sunlight for several minutes these events happen on Earth every 18 months or so but we rarely get to see them that's because a lot of the time these solar eclipses happen somewhere out over the ocean on April 8 8 2024 most of North America will be able to see a total solar eclipse so get ready scientists estimate the next time this will happen will be in the year 2033 but you know what a solar eclipse lo
oks like on Earth what does it look like on other planets but before we get to that let me introduce you to a new game I've been playing it's called Beast Lord the new land and it's got over 10 million downloads it's a free strategy mobile game that allows allows you to play as 500 different animals to defend and conquer the animal kingdom you can explore the game map play with your friends or battle your enemies one of my favorite Parts is the Beast system now you got to get to level 16 to unlo
ck it but it's totally worth it instead of regular animals you get to unlock dinosaurs to play with I'm talking about T-Rex spino anky and over a dozen others these beasts will give you a huge Advantage when it comes to surviv and battling in the game and if you're really up for a challenge you can face the mega Beast this is one of the hardest bosses in the game but if you train your squad up to a high enough level I'm sure you can take it you can also capture your own Mega Beast by defeating e
nemies in the wild and maybe finding a mega Beast egg if you manage to hatch one of these well say hello to one of the most powerful creatures in the game check out Beast Lord the new land and use my code B L 777 that gives you the supplies you need to get started in the game download the game by clicking the link in the description and build your own beast land Jupiter Jupiter the largest planet in our solar system has 95 moons but that only tells part of the story since Jupiter has such a big
gravitational pull it's got thousands of different kinds of asteroids celestial bodies and space debris orbiting around it now despite having 95 moons only four of them are known to cause a total solar eclipse on the planet eio ganam Europa and Kalisto each provides a unique solar eclipse experience one of my favorites is EO it's 1,800 kilm in diameter making it the third largest moon of Jupiter and for reference that's about 5% bigger than our moon now NASA has captured some incredible images o
f what a solar eclipse looks like with EO that shadow you see there is being cast by the sun onto the planet another incredibly cool aspect of this solar eclipse is that EO is the most volcanically active Celestial body in the solar system because of all these volcano you'd look up at the solar eclipse and see a sparkly ball of fire blocking out the sun this amazing site would last around 13 minutes solar eclipses found on Earth can last from a few seconds to about 7 minutes this is due to the p
roximity of the Moon to our sun and the speed at which the moon travels but what about a triple solar eclipse yeah that's right now this only happens once or twice every 10 years but at times eio Kalisto and ganam will all line up and block out the sun creating this incredibly cool effect now watch as these planets create some mesmerizing Shadows on Jupiter's surface wait for it wait for it huh nothing's happening oh right well that's because Mercury and Venus don't have any moons to block out t
he Sun but why well Mercury is moonless because of how close it is to the sun since it's a smaller Planet its gravity is too weak to hold on to other celestial bodies they either crash into the planet or be swallowed up by the sun now Venus is a bit of a different story billions of years ago the planet may have had a moon but then millions of years later it was impacted by another massive Rock hurling through space this caused the planet to change its orbital Direction causing its moon to crash
directly into the planet maybe one day a big enough asteroid will swing by and create a brief solar eclipse for Venus and Mercury but for now they'll just have to imagine what a solar eclipse is like luckily you won't have to Let's swing over to our other planets Mars Welcome To Mars the red planet has the opportunity to showcase multiple solar eclipes because it has two moons damos and Phobos but is a bit of an issue these solar eclipses are quite different from what we might see on Earth and t
hat's because they only provide a partial solar Eclipse these little guys are practically glorified asteroids Phobos has a diameter of 22.2 KM and damos is even smaller with a diameter of 12.6 km now because of their tiny size and their distance from the Sun and Mars they can only block out parts of the Sun but despite this the sights are still incredibly mesmerizing now what if we looked at the eclipse from the Viewpoint of one of the moons well from this epic Viewpoint you'd see Mars eclipse t
he moon creating a full solar eclipse the coolest part well depending on the time of year this could happen every day Saturn now Saturn's got dozens of moons approximately 146 of them some of its moons are bigger than Mercury now similar to some of the other planets NASA has been able to capture some breathtaking imagery of eclipses happening on the planet but now we're going to show it to you in a way that's never been done before now just like with Mars depending on your Vantage Point you coul
d experience multiple solar eclipses a day depending on the season and which moon you decide to camp out on Uranus now Uranus has about 28 moons just five or so are big enough to provide a full solar eclipse the only problem they're incredibly rare yeah since the planet has an 84-year orbit around the Sun a solar eclipse happens only once every 42 years the reason for this is that Uranus is tilted on its side the extreme tilt results in strange patterns of sunlight on the planet not to mention i
t causes Uranus's moons to float along its equator once every 42 years Uranus's poles happen to line up and face the Sun once this happens then the moons are able to align in a way that they can pass in front of the sun causing a total solar eclipse out of Neptune's 14 moons half of them are able to produce a solar eclipse so the view from this planet must be pretty incredible right unfortunately what you get here is less than Stellar Neptune is so far away from the Sun that instead of the blist
ering star that we know from our perspective on Earth the sun there is just a small little Sparkle in the sky you see all these Stars while looking up at the night sky here on Earth well that's what our sun would look like on Neptune it gets 1 1900th of the sunlight we get back at home now because of this when a solar eclipse does happen it's not that noticeable and it only lasts a few seconds Pluto now it's not technically a planet anymore but we got to give some love to the littlest guy in our
solar system Pluto has a particularly interesting solar eclipse that happens every 120 years Pluto takes turns eclipsing the sun with its largest moon Char on roughly every 6 and 1 half Earth days another twist well since Pluto only shows half the planet to the moon only half the planet experiences the eclipse so there you go this is what happens when moons and other celestial bodies cover up the sun hey have you ever thought about what would happen if the sun suddenly produced a solar flare he
aded right for Earth well that sounds like a story for another what if
