Solar eclipse annual is scheduled on Thursday, but is not visible in India until it is reporter PTI cite a notable astrophysicist in some parts of Arunachal Pradesh. Not only from India, Eclipse can be seen from other countries.
The ring solar eclipse happens along a straight line of the sun, moon and earth virtually in the same plane. When a ring of fire appears on the air it is a partial eclipse.
On Tuesday in Kolkata, the eclipse will not affect almost any part of India, with the exception of Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh, the Director of Debiprasad Duari M. P. Birla Planetarium. Arunachal pradesh, the position, may be visible shortly before sunset,” said Duari.
An eclipse is a natural occurrence. Solar eclipses, on the other hand, were attributed to supernatural causes or regarded as bad omens in some ancient and modern cultures.
People who are unaware of the astronomical explanation for a total solar eclipse may be terrified as the Sun appears to disappear during the day and the sky darkens in a matter of minutes.
Total eclipses are uncommon because the timing of the new moon during the eclipse season must be precise in order for the observer (on Earth) to align with the Sun and Moon’s centres.
Furthermore, the Moon’s elliptical orbit frequently takes it far enough away from Earth that its apparent size is not large enough to completely block the Sun.
Total solar eclipses are extremely rare in any given location because totality occurs only along a narrow path on the Earth’s surface traced by the Moon’s full shadow, or umbra.
