  • Eclipse 2018 Total solar eclipse over the US

When it's a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon, however, in partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured. When the moon passes between the sun and the earth, it stops some or all light from the sun. The Aug. 11 eclipse marks the end of this eclipse season after two previous eclipses during the month of July.

There was another partial eclipse on Friday, July 13 but the lunar event had limited visibility.

On August 11, some parts of the world will be witnessing the partial solar eclipse. As per NASA, the visibility of this solar eclipse will be restricted to northern Canada, the majority of Siberia, north-eastern US, Greenland, Scandinavia and a few sections of central Asia including China. Sun eclipse can also be seen with the help of telescope or pinhole camera.

It is the practice of uttering mantras at the time of the eclipse.

Svalbard, the Norwegian island will be the best place where you can see the eclipse. Mostly it will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, as India is not close to the same, the solar eclipse will not be visible in the country.

Hence India is not in the path of Moon shadow on on August 11, 2018 so Eclipse is not visible here, Mr Kumar explained. This phenomenon is called the solar eclipse. As the three bodies are found in a straight line, residents from some parts of the Earth will find part of the Sun blocked by the Moon's shadow.

The solar eclipse will be visible in Russian Federation, northern parts of China, Mongolia, Northern Europe and northern Canada as well as the Arctic Ocean.

The partial eclipse will be a small eclipse as the moon will cover only the edge of the sun, with much of the star still visible.

People in Shanghai get to see the final part of the eclipse at sunset.

Special glasses to look at the partial solar eclipse. "The moon took a little bit bigger bite out of the sun up here in Sweden", Spaceflash News tweeted.

The Next Solar Eclipse visible in India will occur on December 26, 2019 which again will be visible partially across the contry, he added.
