It is also suggested that solar eclipse should be witnessed through binoculars, telescope or optical camera viewfinder. The world, today, will witness one of the breathtaking visuals of a partial solar eclipse.

The partial solar eclipse will be visible in the day starting at around 1:32 pm Indian Standard Time (IST), and will be visible till 5:02 PM IST. While, it will end at 04:21 pm PST, a private news channel reported. It will be a partial eclipse and will also be witnessed in Pakistan. Earlier, on July 27, second and last lunar eclipse of 2018 was experienced in many countries including Pakistan. Unlike solar eclipses, a lunar eclipse often lasts much longer, and are less rare because they can be seen by everyone on the side of Earth where it's night, while only those within the radius of the moon's shadow on Earth can see a solar eclipse.

The time of greatest eclipse, with almost 75 percent of the sun hidden, will occur at local sunset in Russian Federation from Kolyuchinskaya Bay in far northeast Siberia - a large, usually ice-covered bay in the Chukchi Sea on the northern shore of the Chukotka Peninsula. If the moon is positioned between the Earth and the sun, a solar eclipse takes place.

According to NASA, twice a year, the moon's orbit crosses paths with the sun's orbit for 34 days when up to three eclipses can happen.

We call this an eclipse season. According to, because the moon is relatively smaller than Earth, the shadow is cast on a small area of the Earth's surface. "It can cause eye damage".

A partial solar eclipse is visible over a statue.

The partial solar eclipse will last for over 3 hours and it will be visible from regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

But what makes this event special is that it will be seen by more people (25 percent occultation) than any of the others - the previous eclipses saw 10 and 16 percent occultation.

"Viewers shouldn't look skyward at the eclipse without protective glasses", said Shi Zhicheng, a member of the Chinese Astronomical Society.

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.
