Weeks after the world witnessed the closest approach of Jupiter to Earth for over 107 years, stargazers are in for another celestial event in the coming days.
The Sun, Moon, and Earth are set to come together, although, unevenly to form a partial solar eclipse on October 25.
A solar eclipse occurs when the new Moon passes in front of the Sun, blocking the sunlight. While a solar eclipse only happens at a new moon, not every new moon results in the celestial event. The eclipse appears to have taken a bite out of the Sun as it reaches its maximum.
The Partial Solar Eclipse on October 25 will begin at 8:58 am and end at 1:02 pm. During the eclipse, the magnitude will be 0.862.
According to the MP Birla Planetarium, Kolkata, people in Europe, the Middle-East, North-East Africa, Western Asia, the North Atlantic Ocean, West China, India and its neighbouring countries, including the North Indian Ocean will be able to witness a Partial Solar Eclipse.
