This year’s Solar Eclipse is going to occur on June 10, however, it will not be visible from all the parts of India, except the region of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. The cosmic phenomenon occurs when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in the same line and the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun, blocking the view of the Sun, but not entirely as the moon revolves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit. This covering by the moon renders a ‘ring of fire’ image to the Sun.
