i've a doubt. in hygen's experiment when a circular object is kept b/w slit and screen (according poisson's description)a bright spot is seen in the center of shadow of object right!? similarly in total solar eclipse the same funda is involved but why doesn't the bright spot occur in the center of the shadow???
