Earth will bear witness to an annular solar eclipse on Sunday, 21 June.

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the angular diameter of the moon falls short of that of the sun and it fails to cover up the latter completely.

For the unversed, NASA defines this eclipse as, a phenomenon that happens when the moon is farthest from Earth.

A solar eclipse occurs when the disk of the moon appears to cross in front of the disk of the sun.

First, there is a total solar eclipse - which is only visible from a small area on earth.

In Kolkata, the partial eclipse will begin at 10:46 am and end at 2:17 pm, while the timing will be from 10:20 am to 1:48 pm in New Delhi, from 10 am to 1:27 pm in Mumbai, from 10:22 am to 1:41 pm in Chennai and between 10.13 am and 1.31 pm in Bengaluru. Stargazers in the country will be able to view the annular phase of this eclipse in the morning from locations including Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttarakhand and it will be seen as a partial solar eclipse from the rest of the country. The prominent places within this narrow annularity path are Dehradun, Kurukshetra, Chamoli, Joshimath, Sirsa and Suratgarh. The annular solar eclipse will be seen at different timings from these places between 11.52 am (IST) and 12.09 pm (IST), ranging from 31 seconds to 45 seconds, on June 21.

The solar eclipse will be seen as a partial eclipse over Qatar sky, starting over at 7:13am Doha local time, while reaching a maximum phase of eclipse at 8:30am, where Moon will cover 80% of Solar disc at the maximum of the solar eclipse on Qatar sky. He believes that the sunlight and the solar eclipse will be a natural remedy for the virus.

However, the ring of fire will not be as prominent this time as it was on December 26 a year ago and will be a little narrower, Duari said in a statement. As a result a ring of the Sun's disk remains visible around the Moon.

It must be noted that one must never look at the sun with naked eye during a solar eclipse; it can cause severe damage to the eyes.
