Total Solar Eclipse Today

Total Solar Eclipse Today

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves between the Earth and the Sun, partially or completely blocking the Sun's light. This creates a shadow on Earth known as the "path of totality," where the Sun is entirely obscured. Within this narrow band, observers can witness a total solar eclipse, experiencing darkness akin to dawn or dusk.

The upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, will be visible along a 185-kilometre path spanning Mexico, the US, and Canada. The event, lasting about two and a half hours, will feature totality for around four minutes and 27 seconds, significantly longer than the 2017 eclipse. However, it won't be observable from India.

For safety, skywatchers worldwide are advised to wear protective eyewear like certified eclipse glasses during the partial phases to avoid retinal damage from the Sun's intense brightness. Staring directly at the Sun, even during an eclipse, can lead to permanent eye injury or blindness.
