A solar Eclipse in August: how it will affect health

  • Solar eclipse will be visible in southern China on Saturday

The eclipse - the third and last the Earth will see in 2018 - will be the only solar eclipse visible in China this year, according to the Chinese Astronomical Society. "The last partially visible solar eclipse across India was way back in March 2016", he said.

A solar eclipse is a celestial phenomenon that occurs when the moon, the sun and the Earth are aligned in a straight line. The solar eclipse in London starts at 9 o'clock in the morning.

The essence of the phenomenon is that the Moon is between the Sun and Earth, and the partial shade from it will cover the surface of the planet.

The 24-year-old joined Atletico in 2015 from Valencia , but has struggled to establish himself during his time in the Spanish capital.

In 2018, the first eclipse was the super blue blood moon on January 31 followed by a partial solar eclipse on the February 15. Mostly it will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, as India is not close to the same, the solar eclipse will not be visible in the country.

It may be mentioned that in a solar eclipse, the Moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth thereby blocking the sun rays from reaching the Earth. Even though it will be visible to a wider swath of the world, the August 11 eclipse still won't be visible in the U.S. Those in northern Scandinavia, Svalbard in Norway, most of Russia, Greenland, northern China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan will also get a great view of the crescent sun. On the other hand, the whole divine occasion will last till 12.32 pm GMT or 5.02 pm IST.

With regard to the maximum phase of a partial Eclipse, it will be registered in the district of the East Siberian sea, near Wrangel island. The moon's shadow travels across the face of the earth from point to point.

Crash reported after plane stolen from Seattle airport
The plane was piloted by a 29-year-old Pierce County man and crashed on Ketron Island , the Pierce County Sheriff's Office said. The plane "was doing stunts in the air or probably the lack of flying skills caused crash into Island", the department tweeted.

Where can you see it?

However, the Ukrainians will not be able to observe the Eclipse this time in real time.

Viewers of solar eclipses are advised to never look directly at the Sun, and either wear specialised glasses or viewing boxes.

Oscars to shorten run-time, add popular film category
