Solar Eclipse LIVE Updates

Solar Eclipse (Surya Grahan) June 2020 in India Live Updates: When the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth are aligned in a straight line or an almost straight configuration, such that the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth blocking the rays of Sun from directly reaching the Earth, we witness a solar eclipse. Based on the alignment, there are three kinds of solar eclipses — total, partial, and annular — along with the addition of a rare hybrid of an annular and a total solar eclipse.

The solar eclipse today is an annular eclipse where the Moon is so far from Earth that its relative size fails to cover the Sun completely and leaves the outer rims visible, thus creating a ring of fire in the sky. Today the annual solar eclipse will start at 9:15 AM IST and will be visible until 3:04 PM IST. The maximum eclipse will take place at 12:10 IST. The eclipse will be visible from much of Asia, Africa, the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, parts of Europe and Australia.

According to Nehru Planetarium, Bhuj will be the first city in India from where the beginning of the eclipse will be visible at 9.58 am. The eclipse will end four hours later at 2.29 pm. Looking at the Sun directly can cause permanent damage to the retina so it is recommended to use special goggles, welder’s shield, or pin-hole imaging technique to see the solar eclipse.

Dos to watch the June 21 solar eclipse

* The rays of the sun are extremely bright and damaging when looked at directly. Special glasses can be purchased specifically for this purpose. If you are an avid sun observer we would recommend that you invest in a good pair of solar viewing glasses. However, if you just want to see this specific phenomenon, you can get one’s made out of cardboard.

* Using the pinhole imaging technique you can also put up the image of the Sun directly on a wall. To do so, you can tape a pinhole card sheet o a mirror and reflect the image of the Sun on a distant wall.

Don’ts 

* Don’t look at the Sun directly.

* Ordinary sunglasses should not be used to view the phenomenon.

* Do not look at the reflection of the Sun in the water.

* Do not try to cover glass with lampblack or carbon soot and then try to view the eclipse.
