Eclipse 2018 What time will the partial solar eclipse be visible on Saturday

The solar eclipse, also known as Surya Grahan in India, will be visible across major parts of the Northern Hemisphere, though India will not get to see the event.India will not be able to watch it and only certain parts of the world such as North and East Asia, Scandinavia in Europe, Iceland, Greenland and the icy regions of Canada around Nunavut and the Northwest Passage will be able to see it, a report said.

A solar eclipse happens when the moon comes between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on the planet.

In the Indian culture, a solar or lunar eclipse is regarded as a very bad omen, especially for the pregnant women.

The partial solar eclipse will be visible in the day starting at around 1:32 pm Indian Standard Time (IST), and will be visible till 5:02 PM IST.

The eclipse will officially begin at 9.02am BST (8.02am UTC) when the moon first appears to make contact with the sun's disk.

During a partial solar eclipse, there is no totality because the moon will only cover a portion of the sun, according to NASA.

Partial solar eclipses can be very unsafe to look at with the naked, eye, accordion to the American Astrological Society (AAS). Having arrived at the ascending node nearly too late for the partial solar eclipse on July 13, the moon now passes the same node nearly too early. The August eclipse was preceded by the brilliant total lunar eclipse Blood Moon on Friday, July 27, and another partial solar eclipse on Friday, July 13.

An eclipse should not be seen with the naked eye, maintains NASA as it can cause damage to the eye.

This was followed by two eclipses during the month of July.

What time is the solar eclipse?

It will continue to brush over Northern Europe, Iceland and the North Pole, covering most of Russian Federation in a transient shadow before dipping down in China's horizon.

As mentioned previously, an eclipse is a phenomenon in which the Earth, Sun and Moon are aligned in a manner, which results in one body being blocked from getting sunlight.

This solar eclipse's view will differ from location to location.

Just like during the August 2017 total solar eclipse, you will need special eclipse glasses to get the best viewing experience of the partial eclipse to protect your eyes. Skywatchers should use binoculars, a telescope or optical camera viewfinder to watch the eclipse.
