Partial Solar Eclipse 2018, Aanshik Surya Grahan 11 August 2018

The world will see its last eclipse of the year on Saturday, when the moon will partially block out light from the sun. Solar Eclipse 2018 (Surya Grahan): Where it's visible The eclipse will mostly be visible to those countries in the north, Greenland, Iceland, Cananda, Russia, curving all the way down to the northern part China as the celestial bodies move in their orbits.

Canadians will only be able to spot it early in the morning in Nunavut, but the rest of the country - and the entire USA - will be out of luck. Also, it turns dark during a solar eclipse as the Sun gets blocked.

A pinhole projection can also be one way to witness the solar eclipse without the danger of damaging your eyes.

After July's complete solar eclipse, sky-watchers are now getting ready to witness the partial solar eclipse or surya grahan today.

A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes in a direct line between the earth and the sun.

You can see the viewing times for a few locations in Newfoundland and Quebec in the table below.

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

The declaration that was issued on Wednesday will also allocate a whopping $2million to pay for response measures. The National Park Service (NPS) has granted official permits to multiple counter-protests in Washington D.C.

What is a solar eclipse?

On July 27, we had a stunning eclipse of the moon - the longest total lunar eclipse of the century.

In case you haven't been keeping track, this will be the third eclipse in less than a month. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth comes between the moon and the sun, causing the moon to be covered by Earth's shadow and fade away.

Because of the moon's orbit, either two weeks before or after a total lunar eclipse, the moon reaches the opposite side of its orbit and crosses the ecliptic again - this time, at new-moon phase - resulting in an eclipse of the sun. The moon will cover approximately 73% of the sun when the eclipse is at its peak, according to NASA. According to the map, the partial solar eclipse will be seen over the North Pole and eastern parts of Siberia.

If one want's to capture the event on camera, either for photo's or video's, they should add a special solar filter for protection. Addressing this particular belief of poisonous food during a solar eclipse, NASA had said previous year, "Related to the false idea of harmful solar rays is that during a total solar eclipse, some kind of radiation is produced that will harm your food".

According to the American Astrological Society (AAS), partial solar eclipses can be very risky to look at with the naked eye.
