June 21, 2020: A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth are aligned in a straight line such that the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth blocking the sun rays from directly reaching the Earth. The solar eclipse is generally of three kinds total, partial, and annular based on the alignment.
The solar eclipse we witnessed today was 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.
The eclipse was visible from Asia, Africa, the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, parts of Europe and Australia. It was visible from 9:15 AM IST to 3:04 PM IST and the maximum eclipse took place at 12:10 IST.
