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.

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.

How to watch Surya Grahan today

Everyone must note that today the rays of the sun will be extremely bright and damaging when looked at directly. You must use special glasses (a good pair of solar viewing glasses is a must). If you don't have glasses you can get one’s made out of cardboard as well. But be careful. You can also try getting a welder’s filter to watch solar eclipse today. If nothing is available, you can use the pinhole imaging technique.(Image: Nehru Planetarium)

Solar Eclipse or Surya Grahan 2020 Today in India Live Updates: Today is the first solar eclipse of 2020. This one will be an annular solar eclipse, during which the Moon will cover the Sun from the centre leaving the outer ring visible, thus creating a ring of fire in the sky. This happens when the Moon is far away from Earth that makes its relative size not big enough to cover the Sun completely. The June 21 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.
