Solar Eclipse 2020: Images of the celestial event from around the country. They’re mesmerising
Solar Eclipse which is happening today on June 21 is very special as it’s the last one visible from India this year until it occurs again on 2022.
During a solar eclipse the moon passes in front of the sun and completely blocks its light. Today’s eclipse, however, is special as the moon will not completely hide the sun’s light. The result will be a little bit of light peeking from around the edge looking just like a shining ring - hence, today’s event is also called ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse.
With this annular solar eclipse going on, Twitter is abuzz with posts related to this amazing celestial event. Just like this tweet shared by news agency ANI which shows how the Solar Eclipse 2020 looks from Kurukshetra, Haryana.
