Solar Eclipse August 11: where to watch

Come August 11 and the world will witness yet another partial solar eclipse of the year. According to Nasa, it is unsafe to see solar eclipses through naked eyes.

A partial eclipse occurs when the moon covers only part of the sun, according to Space. A partial solar eclipse should not be viewed with bare eyes, and special glasses should be used.

What is a solar eclipse? Whereas the partial solar eclipse will appear when the moon covers some part of the Sun.

In 2018, the first eclipse was the super blue blood moon on January 31 followed by a partial solar eclipse on the February 15. "The two lunar eclipses were visible from India". The Partial eclipse on August 11 will be the third time when the moon could be seen taking a bite of the Sun, this year. Europeans from below the Arctic Circle and above will catch the partial eclipse - Scandinavia, Russia and Iceland and probably the north of Scotland will see this fantastic event.

However, 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, the report said. Following the blood moon on July 27, a partial solar eclipse will be witnessed today.

The peak of the partial eclipse was at 9.46am UT (10.46am BST) and ended at 11.30am UT (12.30pm BST).
