Sky gazers are in for a treat today! The new moon has started to sweep in front of the sun to create this year's first solar eclipse (surya grahan) today, June 10, 2021. 

The Moon, Earth, and the Sun will all align together to form a celestial event. The solar eclipse on June 10 is rare and special as it will see the appearance of the 'ring of fire' around the Moon, which will be visible in parts of Canada and Siberia.

In India, the solar eclipse will be visible to people in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. The peak time will come around 4:16 pm when both the Sun and Moon will conjunct exactly at 25 degrees in the Taurus sign.

What happens during an annual solar eclipse?

An annual solar eclipse occurs when the sun and the moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the moon's shadow is smaller than that of the visible disc of the sun. The covered sun, therefore, appears as a 'Ring of Fire', with its rays appearing spread out from the outline of the moon. A sight to behold, indeed!
