10 June, 2021 Annular Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth are in aligned in almost exactly a straight line such that the Moon's shadow falls on the Earth. Annular eclipse is a solar eclipse in which the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun's, because Moon is farther away from Earth in its elliptical orbit. In this position Moon blocks most of the Sun's central region, leaving a thin annulus (ring) like part of the Sun visible. Solar eclipses can occur only on new moons, but not all new moons have a solar eclipse. An annular eclipse will occur on 10 June, 2021. The path of annularity will be close to Earth's north pole. Mid and high norther latitudes will experience a partial solar eclipse. It will be visible as a very minor partial eclipse in the northern most parts of Jammu Kashmir, Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh in India. The rest of India will not experience any eclipse.
