Posted November 16, 2018 09:19:00 The last solar eclipse in India will be visible in the city of New Delhi on Tuesday, and the National Astronomical Observatory (NAO) said the event will be seen in the entire country.
The NAO said the total eclipse will take place at about 6:18pm (11:18 GMT) and will be the largest to hit India in a decade.
The total eclipse is due to start at around 11:36pm local time (17:36 GMT) in the eastern suburbs of the capital, but the Nauset-based observatory said the partial eclipse will be much shorter, around 10:15pm local (11.15 GMT).
The total solar eclipse will also be visible from a distance of around 20 kilometers (12.5 miles), and the total solar eclipses are known to last up to one hour.
The Nausets eclipse of February 18, 2012 will last for just over two hours and will see a total solar storm.
The partial eclipse is expected to last for about two hours.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has taken a leading role in campaigning for the 2019 elections, will attend the eclipse.
Nauset, located in southern India, is also a prime location for the annual Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) annual meeting on Wednesday.
The Naos eclipse will coincide with the start of a major lunar eclipse, the Moon’s total lunar eclipse on November 19, 2019.
