What is Total Solar Eclipse?

The moon totally blocks out the sun for a few minutes, leading to a period of darkness.

Since the Earth’s surface is curved, sometimes an eclipse can shift between annular and total as the Moon’s shadow moves across the globe, known as Annular Hybrid Eclipse.

Visibility in India

The rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India.
