Partial Solar Eclipse 2018 Timing Significance Myths And Precautions About Surya Grahan

Whereas it has also been out that the people in the North Pole will get to see the 65% of the eclipse and it will be the most partial Solar eclipse of 2018. Solar eclipses occur when the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun, blocking light from the Sun.

A solar eclipse occurs, when Moon, the sun and the earth aligned in the same straight line.

People in northern China will on Saturday afternoon get to experience the only solar eclipse visible to the country this year.

Third and last solar eclipse of the current year will be on August 11. The Surya Grahan will not be visible all over India as it is not big enough to cover all the places. Unlike solar eclipses, a lunar eclipse often lasts much longer, and are less rare because they can be seen by everyone on the side of Earth where it's night, while only those within the radius of the moon's shadow on Earth can see a solar eclipse.

Where can you see it?

It will be visible from most of Asia, far northern Europe, Iceland and Greenland, as well as from a slice of northern and eastern Canada.

The most of the Solar eclipse 2018 in August will appear in the Northern part of the World. During a partial solar eclipse, only a portion of the sun is covered by the moon's shadow, making it just as bright as the sun on a typical day.

According to NASA, seeing solar eclipse through naked eyes can damage the eyes so it is always advised to use special eclipse glasses to witness the solar eclipse.
