A solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves between the Sun and the Earth.There are three types of solar eclipses namely total,annular,partial.In an annular solar eclipse the moon covers the sun from the centre.This makes the outer rim of the sun perceptible and this phenomenon is popularly known as 'ring of fire'.On 21 June,2020 the annular eclipse is visible from parts of Africa,Asia,northern India including Central African Republic,Ethiopia and many other places but since I live in kolkata which is in eastern part of India so from there only the partial eclipse is visible.I caputured some pictures of thesolar eclipse 3 event through my camera.The eclipse began at 10:46 am and ended at 2:17pm for a total duration of 3 hours and 31 minutes.The moon covered about 65.52% of the sun.
