Partial Solar Eclipse 2018

So, unlike past year, no place on Earth will see the glorious spectacle of a total solar eclipse.

But so central was the July 27 lunar eclipse, with the moon passing nearly directly through the middle of Earth's shadow, that it allowed for not just one, but two partial solar eclipses: one that occurred two weeks before the lunar eclipse, and another on august 11 (two weeks afterward). Even though it will be visible to a wider swath of the world, the August 11 eclipse still won't be visible in the U.S. As per the suggestions of the map, partial solar eclipse 2018 will be seen over the North Pole and eastern parts of Siberia.

We call this an eclipse season.

Because of the moon's orbit, either two weeks before or after a total lunar eclipse, the moon reaches the opposite side of its orbit and crosses the ecliptic again - this time, at new-moon phase - resulting in an eclipse of the sun.

The partial solar eclipse will be visible in the day starting at around 1:32 pm Indian Standard Time (IST), and will be visible till 5:02 PM IST.

In case you haven't been keeping track, this will be the third eclipse in less than a month.

The world will see its last eclipse of the year on Saturday, when the moon will partially block out light from the sun. It is also advised to take a bath before the eclipse begins too.

A solar eclipse occurs, when Moon, the sun and the earth aligned in the same straight line. From this location, it will last 11 minutes.

The last partial solar eclipse appeared on July 13, although it was only visible over the ocean between Australia ad Antarctica.

On July 27, we had a stunning eclipse of the moon - the longest total lunar eclipse of the century.

On August 11, a part of the Sun will appear to be covered by the Moon's shadow.

What time is the solar eclipse?

Out of three solar eclipses that were scheduled to take place in 2018, this one will be the last one.

Where can you see the solar eclipse?

Those in northern Scandinavia, Svalbard in Norway, most of Russia, Greenland, northern China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan will also get a great view of the crescent sun.

According to NASA, the moon will cover approximately 73 percent of the sun when the eclipse is at its peak. So that's two eclipses, one solar and one lunar, linked by the moon's orbit.

According to many experts, one should not watch the solar eclipse with naked eyes and there are specific glasses to watch it with which are available in the market.

Stargazers will need special eclipse glasses to get the best viewing experience and to protect your eyes.

According to the American Astrological Society (AAS), partial solar eclipses can be very risky to look at with the naked eye.
