Partial solar eclipse is also known as Aanshik Surya Grahan.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon comes between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on the planet. Even some parts of the World as well will witness the partial solar eclipse on 11 August 2018.

Southern Australia saw a partial solar eclipse on July 13, and Antarctica and South America witnessed one on February 15 of this year.

Solar Eclipse 2018 (Surya Grahan): How to observe Just as it is unsafe to look at the sun with unprotected eyes, it is risky to look at a solar eclipse (surya grahan) similarly; it could permanently damage one's eyesight. If the weather is good in the morning, when the eclipse starts (around 4:02 a.m. E.T.), then it may become the most viewed solar eclipse of the year. The Aug. 11 eclipse marks the end of this eclipse season after two previous eclipses during the month of July.

The partial eclipse will hardly be visible from countries that fall below the Arctic Circle including India.

You can see the viewing times for a few locations in Newfoundland and Quebec in the table below. Unfortunately, astronomy enthusiasts in India will not be able to witness this particular eclipse, as it will only be visible over Northern Canada, North-eastern US, Greenland, Siberia, as well as some parts of Asia, including the cities of Seoul in South Korea and Shanghai in China.




This is caused by retinal burns which occur when the powerful rays of the Sun damage cells in the back of the eye.

People are also advised not to eat during solar eclipse. Whereas the partial solar eclipse will appear when the moon covers some part of the Sun.

The solar eclipse will be visible in Russian Federation, northern parts of China, Mongolia, Northern Europe and northern Canada as well as the Arctic Ocean. You'll have to wait until January 21, 2019 for the next eclipse.

During the lunar eclipse, the moon crossed the ecliptic - the apparent path of the sun in our sky - while at full phase on July 27, resulting in our natural satellite passing through the shadow of the Earth (hence the total lunar eclipse).

What time is the solar eclipse?

During a partial solar eclipse, only a portion of the sun is covered by the moon's shadow, making it just as bright as the sun on a typical day.

According to many experts, one should not watch the solar eclipse with naked eyes and there are specific glasses to watch it with which are available in the market.
