What will happen on June 21, 2020?
An annular solar eclipse is set to take place on June 21 and will start at 9:15 PM IST. The eclipse will hit its peak at 12:10 PM IST. A solar eclipse like this one occurs only when the Moon is farthest from the Earth. However, it comes in between the Earth and the Sun blocking most of the Sun. Hence, it creates something called “ring of fire” that looks mesmerising.
According to a report by NASA, this year the Moon will be able to block 99.4 percent of the Sun, when at the peak of the eclipse.
