Surya grahan 2019 December: Solar eclipse will last for over three hours.

New Delhi:

A partial solar eclipse or Surya Grahan will be visible in some parts of India and the world on December 26, Thursday. A Solar eclipse is a natural phenomenon that takes place when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth. This year's partial solar eclipse is an annular solar eclipse, where the Sun appears as a ring (annulus) around the Moon. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA has advised to not look at the sun directly at the time of the solar eclipse as it may permanently cause damage to the eyes.

According to Norway-based site timeanddate.com, the solar eclipse would start in Saudi Arabia, move across southern parts of India, and end in the Pacific outside of the Philippines. While only the people within the path of annularity will see the ring of fire, billions of people across southern Asia can see a partial solar eclipse, it said.
