Several parts of India and several other countries around the world will see a partial solar eclipse on Thursday. The annular solar eclipse-often called a fire eclipse ring-occurs when the Moon covers the center of the sun, leaving the visible outer edges of the sun to form a “fire ring” or annulus around the moon.
This is the third and final solar eclipse of the year that will occur in Asia, Africa and Australia. The overall blocking of the sun during the eclipse will be 89.4% in Bengaluru, 84.6% in Chennai, 78.8% in Mumbai, 74.3% in Hyderabad, 66% in Ahmedabad and 44.7% in Delhi, Birla Industrial and Technological M. The eclipse will be seen in Kolkata at 45.1 percent, beginning at 08:26:55 am, hitting its peak at 09:52:37 am and ending at 11:32:37 am.
