Last solar eclipse of 2018 on 11th

Last solar eclipse of 2018 on 11th

In addition to potentially being the most viewed eclipse, the August 11 eclipse will also be the last eclipse - lunar or solar - of 2018. It will not be witnessed in Pakistan.

The world will see its last eclipse of the year on Saturday, when the moon will partially block out light from the sun.

The partial eclipse will be visible from 1:32 pm to 5:02 pm (IST) on Saturday. While, it will end at 04:21 pm PST, a private news channel reported. After July's complete solar eclipse, sky-watchers are now getting ready to witness the partial solar eclipse or surya grahan today. Earlier, on July 27, second and last lunar eclipse of 2018 was experienced in many countries including Pakistan.

How is partial solar eclipse different from total solar eclipse?

The solar eclipse will be visible in Russian Federation, northern parts of China, Mongolia, Northern Europe and northern Canada as well as the Arctic Ocean. Although, this myth gains traction around the time of a total solar eclipse, some people refuse to cook or eat even during partial eclipses.

A solar eclipse can be full or partial depending on the portion of the Sun obscured by the Moon when viewed from the Earth.

We call this an eclipse season.

All 5 gates of Idukki Dam opened as Kerala battles unending rains
All of the dam's gates being opened will heighten concerns of extreme flooding along the banks of the rapidly swelling Periyar. Mani, who hails from Idukki, said: "Things are pretty bad and I have visited the affected areas on Thursday morning".

When the moon completely covers the sun, it creates a total solar eclipse, casting a shadow of the moon across the Earth's surface.

A partial solar eclipse is visible over a statue. Because the moon is near perigee (the point closest to Earth in the moon's orbit), the dark shadow cone of the moon - called the umbra - tapers to well beyond us (by a distance of approximately three times Earth's radius), but also completely misses touching our planet, passing 4,500 miles (7,300 kilometers) above the North Pole.

The wide path of this eclipse means more people will be able to catch it, compared to the July 13 partial solar eclipse.

According to experts, homemade glasses or normal sunglasses are not safe to watch the partial eclipse.

"Viewers shouldn't look skyward at the eclipse without protective glasses", said Shi Zhicheng, a member of the Chinese Astronomical Society.

According to NASA, seeing solar eclipse through naked eyes can damage the eyes so it is always advised to use special eclipse glasses to witness the solar eclipse.
