Share

The first solar eclipse of the year 2020 is going to appear on June 21 which will be visible in different parts of the world including India. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's diameter is smaller than the Sun's, leading to blocking of most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). The article does not promote capturing of the solar eclipse.

A partial solar eclipse is seen from Kathmandu, Nepal. The maximum eclipse will take place at 12:10 IST.

Sunday's eclipse arrived on the northern hemisphere's longest day of the year-the summer solstice-when Earth's north pole is tilted most directly towards the Sun.

India will witness an annular solar eclipse on Sunday morning. The "ring of fire" phenomenon will not be visible in south India.
