A partial solar eclipse was seen from various locations across India on Wednesday, starting at 4:49am till 9:08am.
“Today’s eclipse, which was partial for many parts of India, was total in Indonesia and Malaysia regions,” said Dr Ratnashree, director of the Nehru Planetarium.
As the new moon passes directly in front of the Sun during the early hours of March 9, millions of people across Indonesia and the Pacific were treated to a total solar eclipse, which began at 6:19am.
Total solar eclipses, a rare event, occur when the moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, and casts the darkest part of its shadow on Earth.
