Annular Solar Eclipse: 21 June 2020

An Annular Solar Eclipse (ASE) will be visible on the morning of 21 June 2020 in India, with the annular track passing through Punjab, Haryana and Uttarakhand.

Solar eclipses are of huge public interest and prodive an exceptional opportunity to promote science and scientific temper among the people, as well as challenge the myths surrounding the topic. The mass campaigns during past solar eclipses in India are unique in their range and reach.

Given the current global CoViD-19 pandemic, we recommend that you watch the solar eclipse while following the usual physical distancing precautions.
