Century`s longest solar eclipse tomorrow
New Delhi: A long wait by sky gazers to look at a rare celestial event will end tomorrow when the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century will be seen.
A total eclipse occurs when the Sun is completely obscured by the Moon. The intensely bright disk of the Sun is replaced by the dark silhouette of the Moon.
During the total eclipse, totality is visible only from a narrow track on the surface of the Earth.
The Indian cities through which the shadow of total eclipse passes are Bhavnagar, Surat, Ujjain, Indore, Bhopal, Sagar, Jabalpur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Gaya, Patna, Bhagalpur, Jalpaigudi, Guwahati and Dibrugarh.
The countries to witness the path of the Moon`s umbral shadow are India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China.
