Is it safe to photograph 2021 Solar Eclipse?

If you are using your mobile phone, then you need to put eclipse glasses over the smartphone’s camera lens. If you have a DSLR, then avoid looking through a camera’s optical viewfinder and use the LCD screen.

Solar Eclipse to begin in 15 minutes

Looking at the Sun directly can cause permanent damage to the retina so it is recommended to use special goggles, a welder’s shield, or a pin-hole imaging technique to see the solar eclipse.

Planning to watch solar eclipse using binoculars?

The image of the sun can be put up on a sheet of white paper using a pair of binoculars pointed at the Sun. Do not use ordinary goggles, as they are not dark enough and are made to cut only the terrestrial light. Also, do not use a glass surface covered with lampblack or carbon soot as it is not safe.

Solar Eclipse 2021: How long will the 'Ring of Fire' last?

The annular solar eclipse phase or 'Ring of Fire' will last a maximum of 3 minutes 51 seconds. The annular eclipse of the Sun is a special case of the total solar eclipse in which the Moon does not cover the Sun completely.

Solar eclipse: Eye safety first

It is not safe to look at any solar eclipse directly; annular, partial or total. NASA that those who are viewing a solar eclipse should wear "solar viewing or eclipse glasses" throughout the entire eclipse, especially if one wants to face the sun. These glasses are not the same as your regular sunglasses. For those who do not have glasses, NASA says they should try "an alternate indirect method, such as a pinhole projector," but one should not use these to look directly at the sun.

Solar eclipse 2021: Where all is it visible?

The annular eclipse will be visible in parts of Canada, Greenland, and northern Russia. So people living in these areas will see the ring of fire. 

The areas where the partial solar eclipse will be visible are eastern United States, northern Alaska, along with much of Canada and parts of the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. According to NASA, in many of these locations, the eclipse will occur before, during, and shortly after sunrise. The annular eclipse will not be visible in India, though it will be visible in eastern states such as Arunachal Pradesh but only in limited areas.

Solar Eclipse 2021: A rare event

The annular solar eclipse is a rare and mesmerising sight and you shouldn’t miss it. NASA says annular solar eclipses appear every 18 months somewhere on Earth and they are visible only a few minutes, unlike lunar eclipses. Next year, you will not see a total or annular solar eclipse, as per Timeanddate.com. In 2022, you will only get to see two partial solar eclipses. 

11:17 (IST)10 Jun 2021
Solar Eclipse 2021 event to start soon

During this solar eclipse, the Moon will block off around 70 per cent of the Sun. The ring of fire will not be seen constantly. It will only be seen when the eclipse is at its peak. Before and after that you will only be able to see a crescent shape Sun.

Eclipses helped discover Earth shape?

NASA says hundreds of years ago when people observed the Moon during an eclipse, they saw Earth’s shadow on the Moon and discovered that the Earth is round. “Even after all these years, scientists are still learning about the Moon from lunar eclipses, NASA said.

Scientists also use solar eclipses as an opportunity to study the Sun’s corona, which is basically the Sun’s top layer. During an annular solar eclipse, NASA uses “ground and space instruments to view the corona when the Moon blocks the Sun’s glare.”

How annular solar eclipse occurs?

When the Moon is near its farthest point from the Earth, called apogee, its relative size fails to completely block the Sun and leaves the outer rims visible. It creates a 'Ring of Fire' in the sky.

How solar eclipse happens?

When the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon align in a straight line, we witness either a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse depending on the position of the three bodies relative to each other. When the Moon moves between Earth and the Sun, it casts a shadow over Earth and blocks the light of the Sun from directly reaching the globe.

Based on the alignment and the relative distance between the three celestial bodies, there are three kinds of solar eclipses — total, partial, and annular. As already mentioned, today you will witness an annular solar eclipse.

10:00 (IST)10 Jun 2021
What are the timings for the annular solar eclipse?

In most of the areas, the 2021 annular solar eclipse event will start at 01:42 PM (IST) and it will be at its peak at around 6.41 pm IST. The duration of the annular eclipse at Greatest Eclipse will be around 3 minute and 51 seconds. The map published by NASA suggests that those who are based in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh will start witnessing the solar eclipse at 12:25. They will be able to see a partial solar eclipse and this celestial event will last until 12:51 for them.

Get ready to witness the 'Ring of Fire' as it will also be partially visible from some parts of India. Those who are based in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh will be able to see this rare astronomical phenomenon.
