What is a Solar Eclipse?
A solar eclipse occurs on a new moon day when it comes in between the earth and the sun and all the three objects are aligned.
What is an Annular Solar Eclipse?
An annular solar eclipse occurs when the angular diameter of the moon falls short of that of the sun and it fails to cover up the latter completely. As a result, a ring of the sun’s disk remains visible around the moon.
The sky gazers will get an opportunity to observe the “ring of fire” during the phenomenon.

Solar Eclipse Live Updates, India:
Solar Eclipse View From Arunachal Pradesh:
People in Arunachal Pradesh will be able to witness Solar Eclipse just before the sunset. They will be able to see a minuscule fraction of the sun covered by the moon.
Impact of Surya Grahan:
Eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time. It will cause permanent damage to the eyes leading to blindness even when the moon covers most portion of the Sun.
A safe technique to observe the solar eclipse is either by using a proper filter like aluminized Mylar, black polymer, welding glass of shade number 14, or by making a projection of the sun’s image on a whiteboard by telescope.
