New Delhi : The solar eclipse will be visible shortly before sunset in India only in parts of Arunachal Pradesh and Ladakh. This will be an annular solar eclipse and this astronomical event occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth come in a straight line.
This celestial event will be visible from near Dibang Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh at around 5:52 pm. At the same time, in the northern part of Ladakh, where the sunset will happen at around 6.15 pm, the solar eclipse will be visible at around 6 pm.
The solar eclipse will be visible in large areas of North America, Europe and Asia. There will be a partial solar eclipse at 11:42 am Indian time and it will start taking an annular form from 3:30 pm and then by 4:52 pm, the sun will appear in the sky like a fire ring (ring of fire).
This year both the Solar Eclipse, Vat Savitri Vrat and Shani Jayanti are on the same day. Therefore, there is confusion among people regarding the worship of Vat Savitri Vrat and Shani Jayanti. Eclipse is not visible in India, its effect is not considered. Therefore, there will be no effect of this eclipse and worship will not be prohibited in temples. Apart from this, the worship of Vat Savitri Vrat and Shani Jayanti can be recited throughout the day.
