Solar Eclipse in 2012

solar eclipse 2012The first solar eclipse in 2012 will be an annular solar eclipse on May 20–21. The term came from the Latin word “annulus,” meaning “little ring”, because the moon will not completely cover the sun during the totality (unlike in a total solar eclipse).

The Solar Eclipse will happen in India and other part of the country on 21st May. The Eclipse can be visible from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkatta, Chenna and many of the indian cities.

Warning: the citizens are advice to NEVER look directly at the sun, It can be safe to view with binoculars, a telescope or with your unaided eye. Eclipse sunglasses, as you might imagine, are not really in demand most of the time,

so it’s hard to know where to find them.

If you can’t manage to get to a location that gives you a view of the full solar eclipse you can use the above NASA link to find out if you can view a partial eclipse from your location.
