Indore: In case, your desire to witness
the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century was not
fulfilled on July 22 last year, due to clouds now you will get
another chance for watching a solar eclipse this year.
The Superintendent of Jiwaji Observatory, Ujjain
Dr Rajendra Prakash Gupta told PTI that those who missed the
eclipse on July 22 last year can see it on January 15.
The annular solar eclipse will start becoming visibile
in India between 11.00 am to 12.30 pm and it will end between

sun would hide behind the moon.
