Indian Institute of Astrophysics is hosting a live stream of today’s solar eclipse. Cosmo Sapiens is also live streaming and we have embedded the live stream link below. The maximum eclipse will take place at around 12:10. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the angular diameter of the moon falls short of that of the sun and it fails to cover up the latter completely. As a result, a ring of the sun’s disk remains visible around the moon. Besides, if you miss this one, then India will be able to witness the next annular solar eclipse on May 21, 2031 and a total solar eclipse on March 20, 2034.
