Partial solar eclipse as seen from cities across India

While most of India was experiencing a partial solar eclipse, the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh caught a rare glimpse. After witnessing moments like these, it is clear that there will be more opportunities for such events to come.

The solar eclipse was seen only in the northeastern part of India. From Agra to Kolkata and Lucknow to Patna, it turned out to be a great time with scientific studies to go along with it. The Revd Dr. Nick Bivand, a professor at the University of Central Lancashire, put together an expedition of scientists from Lucknow University, the Astronomical Society of India (ASI), the Indian Association of Solar Eclipses (IASE), and other places.

The expedition started on April 16th and ended on April 19th. ASI president Dr. Rajiv Tiwari said that there had been no other eclipse as unique as this in over five decades.

In Agra, the partial solar eclipse was visible when some of the buildings' roofs were closed, and others had screens installed.

Starting with Delhi, where the moon briefly appeared on both sides of the Sun as part of this phenomenon, it soon moved towards Mumbai and Chennai, where it started at 9:44 am IST and ended at 10:03 IST, respectively.

The partial solar eclipse got closer and closer to the cities of Kolkata, Guwahati, and Agra in the northeast. The first three were found to be clouded out as the coverage progressed. In Agra, the partial solar eclipse was witnessed at 10:23 am IST.

At first, cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Kanpur, and Patna experienced maximum coverage of the partial solar eclipse this morning, but by 11:47 am, all had already had their turn.

The next solar eclipse will return to our skies on August 2, 2027, when it will be visible in parts of India.

 When the Moon completely blocks out the Sun, a small part of the Earth goes completely dark for a short time. This phenomenon is known as a total solar eclipse. The Moon's shadow will not contact the surface of the Earth at any time during Tuesday's partial eclipse, according to a statement from the Paris Observatory.

It will be the second solar eclipse of the year and the sixteenth overall. According to NASA, the next total solar eclipse will pass over North America on April 8, 2024.

In conclusion, the partial solar eclipse was visible in Agra when some of its buildings' roofs were shut, and others had screens erected. From Agra to Kolkata and Lucknow to Patna, it turned out to be a great time with scientific studies to go along with it.
