Those who are based in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh will start witnessing the solar eclipse at 12:25. They will be able to see a partial solar eclipse and this celestial event will last until 12:51 for them.
What to do and what not during eclipse
People are advised to not stare directly at the Sun. One can wear safety-approved, protective solar eclipse-viewing glasses to directly view this celestial event.
One can view the solar eclipse by creating a pinhole camera or box projector. To capture an eclipse with binoculars, a telescope, or a camera, you should use a safety-approved, protective solar filter on your lens.
3) Do not use homemade filters or any ordinary sunglasses. The darkest pair of sunglasses will still transmit far too much sunlight, which can easily damage the eyes.
4) People might want to capture the ring of fire with their cameras. But scientists don’t advise to do so. There are high chances that the concentrated solar rays might cause injury to the eyes of the looker.
5) People who are near or farsighted can wear their eclipse glasses over their day-to-day glasses in order to view the eclipse.
6) Children who are willing to watch the solar eclipse must be under parental supervision.
