First Solar Eclipse of the year likely to occur on the 10th of June 2021
Some parts of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh will witness the first solar eclipse of year on 10th June.
Each year has a number of climatic transitions that cause a change in weather, seasons and time. The geographical phenomenon where the celestial bodies, the sun, moon and the earth reach the position where they are exactly in a line so as to cause a hinderance in the path of light of the sun reaching the earth is called an eclipse. The eclipse of the year 2021 is likely to occur on the 10th of this month.
The Indian term for solar eclipse is ‘Surya Grahan.’ This year it won’t be visible to the entire country but will be restricted to parts of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. People belonging to the regions which are likely to witness the natural phenomena are advised to watch they eclipse through a protective eyewear like sun-glasses. While cities like NY and Washington DC will see a partial eclipse, the prediction is that parts of Canada, Russia and Greenland will be able to witness the black out.
Nasa has reported that on the eclipse day, the moon is not completely near the sun. There is a full chance of a dark and dull day, however, due to the distance between the moon and the sun, there is a ring of light which is visible to the viewer. Hence it is said that the eclipse will be in the form of ‘ring of fire.’
