मथुरा। मुड़िया मेला, हरियाली तीज, रक्षाबंधन के बाद अब श्रीकृष्ण जन्माष्टमी पर कोरोना का ग्रहण लग गया है। राधाष्टमी, बल्देव छठ जैसे ब्रज के आंचलिक आयोजन भी बिना भीडभाड के होंगे। मंदिरों पर भीड नहीं है।Read More
A solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. The first solar eclipse or Surya Grahan of the year 2020 will fall on June 21. This will be an annular solar eclipse where Moon will cover Sun from the centre leaving the outer rim visible, thus creating a ring of fire.
It happens because the moon is far away from Earth and its relative size is not big enough to entirely cover the sun.
The annular solar eclipse of June 2020 will start at 9:15 am on June 21 as per Indian Standard Timing (IST). The full eclipse will start from 10:17 am with the maximum eclipse occurring at 12:10 pm. According to data by NASA, the Moon will block 99.4 percent of the Sun at its peak and will be visible from Northern India.
Northern India states such as Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttarakhand will get to witness the full annular solar eclipse, while the rest of the country will only get to see a partial solar eclipse. Dehradun, Kurukshetra, Sirsa are some of the major North India cities from where the full solar eclipse would be visible. Delhi, Lucknow, Bangalore, Chennai among other cities will get to observe a partial solar eclipse.
Countries in Africa such as Congo, Central African Republic, Ethiopia will observe the full solar eclipse. Pakistan, China and countries of the Middle-East will also have a chance to view the Surya Grahan.
The solar eclipse will be one of two eclipses expected to occur in 2020. The second and last solar eclipse will be observed on December 14.
