Witness The Vibrant And Vivid Ring Of Fire Today

Weeks have passed since the world collected around to witness the fiery Bloodmoon, the picturesque Supermoon, and finally the total lunar eclipse. Today, the children of earth are to gather yet again to descry the beauty the annular solar eclipse wishes to offer. Also known as ‘the ring of fire eclipse’, it will occur when the Moon comes in between the Earth and the Sun.

The ring of fire eclipse is seen by many to be an extremely rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon covers a part of the sun forming a cosmic halo around its edges. This annular solar eclipse mostly occurs when the moon is the farthest from the earth thereby making the moon appear smaller in size. Several countries across the world have been confirmed to be the lucky ones to decry such a wonderful, yet rare phenomenon.

However, not all states in India might toast this privilege to view such an occurrence as this. According to the map published by NASA, the solar eclipse will be visible in India for a few minutes before the sunset, but only from Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.

According to Duari, director of MP Birla Planetarium, the eclipse shall be visible ‘On the northern borders, in Ladakh, a sliver of land in the border region can experience the last phase of the partial eclipse, again for a short duration, but relatively at a higher altitude than the eastern part of the country.

It is to note that this will be the first solar eclipse of the year 2021. The second and last solar eclipse of this year will occur on 4 December. This will be a Total Solar Eclipse that will begin at 10:59 am and end at 03:07 pm. Remember, do not take in the solar eclipse through a naked eye. It might be far dangerously affecting than it might seem to be. There are, predominantly three types of solar eclipses that might occur in the skies. They are namely total, partial, and annular.
