moon covers some part of the Sun.
This Eclipse is the third in 2018. A total solar eclipse - like the one that took place on August 21, 2017 - occurs when the disk of the moon blocks 100% of the sun.
The same Eclipse took place on 31 July 2000, and the next will be only 21 Aug 2036.
The Association of Astronomy in Jeddah announced that this partial eclipse, celestial event in which the moon briefly lapses with the sun, will be visible from Northern and Eastern Europe, North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia, making it the most watched solar eclipse of 2018 especially in Russian Federation; however, it will be totally invisible in the Arab region. On the other hand, the whole divine occasion will last till 12.32 pm GMT or 5.02 pm IST.
The solar eclipse will be visible from a number of countries and offer millions of people the chance to glimpse the unique astronomical event. As the three bodies are found in a straight line, residents from some parts of the Earth will find part of the Sun blocked by the Moon's shadow. In Yakutsk, the maximum eclipse occurred at 7:14 p.m. local time (1014 GMT), when the moon was covering about 57 percent of the sun. You can check out the path of the eclipse from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre (GSFC) map. The eclipse ended at 8 p.m. local time, about half an hour before sunset. Therefore, pinhole cameras and special solar eclipse glasses must be used to observe the phenomena.
