Partial Solar Eclipse 2018

Last solar eclipse of 2018 on 11th

The time of greatest eclipse, with almost 75 percent of the sun hidden, will occur at local sunset in Russian Federation from Kolyuchinskaya Bay in far northeast Siberia - a large, usually ice-covered bay in the Chukchi Sea on the northern shore of the Chukotka Peninsula.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes across the face of the sun, as viewed from Earth.

During a partial solar eclipse, there is no totality because the moon will only cover a portion of the sun.

A partial solar eclipse visible to major parts of the northern hemisphere will start in the early hours of August 11, Greenwich Mean Time, according to USA space agency Nasa.

The eclipse will start at 4:02 a.m. The Aug. 11 eclipse marks the end of this eclipse season after two previous eclipses during the month of July. It will be a partial eclipse and will also be witnessed in Pakistan.

Where can you see the solar eclipse?

The Aanshik Surya Grahan or Partial Solar Eclipse will be visible from northern and eastern Europe, northern parts of North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia, as per reports.

Those who reside in areas where the eclipse will be visible, must be warned that they should not look at the Sun directly. Also during that eclipse, the moon crossed the ecliptic going from north to south, the descending node of its orbit. Following the blood moon on July 27, a partial solar eclipse will be witnessed today. Just over a year ago, millions across North America were anxiously awaiting the "Great American Solar Eclipse" of August 21. "But the only reason behind these myths was ignorance and lack of knowledge", he said, adding, "During an eclipse, you can do all the activities and follow all your dietary habits that you do on a daily basis". In case of a total lunar eclipse, Earth comes between the Sun and Moon's path, and blocks sunlight from reaching the satellite. Depending on where one lives, the sun will be partially hidden behind the moon.

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

One of the easiest and most cost effective ways to view the eclipse is to make a pinhole camera at home to safely watch the eclipse.
