There are four types of solar eclipse (surya grahan). This is because the moon needs to be between the sun and the earth for the eclipse to take place. Even some parts of the World as well will witness the partial solar eclipse on 11 August 2018.

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

The eclipse will start at 4:02 a.m.

"But the only reason behind these myths was ignorance and lack of knowledge", he said, adding, "During an eclipse, you can do all the activities and follow all your dietary habits that you do on a daily basis".

When the moon completely covers the sun, it creates a total solar eclipse, casting a shadow of the moon across the Earth's surface. 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.

The solar eclipse will be visible in Russian Federation, northern parts of China, Mongolia, Northern Europe and northern Canada as well as the Arctic Ocean.

What time is the solar eclipse?

Other parts of the world that will have views of the partial solar eclipse, albeit a much smaller version of it, include Harbin, China, Nuuk, Greenland and Seoul, South Korea. If done otherwise, it will still remain a good idea not just limited to solar eclipse. It is referred to as "partial" because the moon does not block the entirety of the sun, when witnessed from the earth. Skywatchers should use binoculars, a telescope or optical camera viewfinder to watch the eclipse.

According to many experts, one should not watch the solar eclipse with naked eyes and there are specific glasses to watch it with which are available in the market.
