The first solar eclipse of the year 2021 will take place on June 10 (Thursday) which will last for a total duration of 3 minutes and 51 seconds.

During the eclipse, the Moon will move between the Sun and the Earth, and with the three celestial bodies exactly in line with each other the Sun's light will be blocked from reaching the Earth.

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), in solar eclipses the Moon isn't close enough to Earth to entirely block the view of the Sun from the planet, leaving a ring of sunlight around the moon.

An annular eclipse is a partial eclipse, and only a part of the sun will appear to have a shadow over it.

The eclipse is going to appear as a ‘ring of fire’ in the sky.

Pakistan will miss out on the eclipse entirely. However, the locations where the partial eclipse will be visible are eastern United States, northern Alaska, along with much of Canada and parts of the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and northern Africa.

As per NASA, in many of these areas, the eclipse will occur before, during, and shortly after sunrise.

Meanwhile, to watch this rare phenomenon, people are advised to use protective solar eclipse-viewing glasses.
