Remarkably, the eclipse on Sunday arrives on the northern hemisphere's longest day of the year - the summer solstice - when Earth's north pole is tilted most directly towards the Sun. Because the Moon will be a bit closer to Earth, it will block on the Sun's light entirely. The eclipse then casts a shadow over Earth making it appear dark, even during daytime.
While the eclipse will be a valuable experience, extra caution is required.
There are three more eclipse that will happen in 2020.
"The annular eclipse is visible from about two percent of Earth surface", Florent Delefie, an astronomer and the Paris Observatory, told AFP.
An annular solar eclipse will occur when the angular diameter of the Moon falls short of that of the Sun so that it can not cover up the latter completely. Sounding like the trailer to a horror movie, but much more impressive and considerably less unsafe: day will turn into night, birds may stop singing, sunset will appear all around you, stars and planets will become visible in the darkened sky, and the otherwise hidden solar corona will become visible as white rays streaming out from around the dark lunar disk. It is sometimes mistaken as a full Moon as it is harder to spot. Park at a safe place and watch the eclipse with protective eye gear on.
What is a total solar eclipse? Early in the morning, as much as 99.4% of the sun was covered by the moon for less than a minute. After that, slowly and steadily, the disc of the Moon covers a larger and larger part of the Sun.
An annular solar eclipse, wherein the Sun appears like a ring of fire, will be visible in parts of the country on Sunday, the Ministry of Earth Sciences said. This gives an image of a ring of fire. The eclipse will pass India around 3:04 pm.

However, the Massachusetts Democrat plans to vote against the congressional waiver needed to confirm Austin to the position. Military Academy at West Point , N.Y., has extensive combat experience, leading troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"The next solar eclipse, which will be a partial solar eclipse, visible from India will take place on October 25, 2022. It would be visible in the western part of India". The solar eclipse is unsafe because the Sun outputs more power than our eye is created to handle, and exposing our eye to that kind of power can damage the retina.
Several organisations have organised lectures on the eclipse and also the virtual viewing of the phenomenon. "There are easy tips for viewing the eclipse from the safety of your home".
Allaying rumours that the eclipse will mark the end of the coronavirus pandemic, Sule said, "A solar eclipse is caused when the Moon comes in front of the Sun for a short time".
"I could not see the eclipse properly due to clouds", Ms Kaur, who is the coordinator of the science club at her school, said. Eclipses don't impact microorganisms on Earth. There is no harm in venturing outside, cooking, or eating during eclipses.
Do not use sunglasses, goggles, exposed X-ray sheets or lampblack over glass. The image of the Sun can be seen on this sheet.
Space enthusiasts can track the path of the eclipse using the NASA tracker. Reflect the image of the Sun on a distant wall in shadow. The website adds that in India one can see the Solar Eclipse 2020 or Surya Grahan 2020 at 9:15 am. The maximum phase was observed in northern India.
