First solar eclipse of year not visible in most of India

The first solar eclipse of the year, an annular eclipse at that, is expected to occur shortly after noon today, according to projections made by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa).

The annular solar eclipse, where a “ring of fire” appears around the Moon due to the remnant halo of the Sun, will mostly be visible in the northern hemisphere, most prominently from parts of northeast Canada, Greenland, and Siberia.

In the UK and Ireland, people will witness a partial solar eclipse while most of India, barring a few cities, will be missing out on the celestial phenomenon.

The solar today will not be visible in the skies in most of India.

However, the solar eclipse will be visible to people in some extreme regions of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh, shortly after daybreak.

The solar eclipse on Thursday is expected to begin here shortly after noon, at 1:42pm.

The peak time will come around 4:16pm, when both the Sun and the Moon will conjunct exactly at 25 degrees in the Taurus sign.

After that, the phenomenon will begin to recede and the solar eclipse will finally end at 6:41pm.

Indians will be able to watch the solar eclipse , online via the internet streaming services provided for this purpose by the official websites of Nasa and Timeanddate.com.
