Your friend says that light passing the Sun is bent whether or not Earth experiences a solar eclipse. Do you agree or disagree, and why?
The rays coming from the sun should curved by gravitation of sun.A solar eclipse occurs the when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth Annular solar eclipse depends on several factors. Another reason to light passing through sun is bent.the earth’s atmosphere bends the incoming rays of sunlight like a lence.so we see the image of the sun projected above the horizon before the physical sun is actually there. Hence light passing the Sun is bent and Earth experiences a solar eclipse.there is no any strong reason to say that light passing sun dose not bent.
