‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse to take place on June 10

Thursday will be the first solar eclipse of 2021 (June 10). However, experts have stated that this solar 'ring of fire' would not be seen in Pakistan.

In Russia, Greenland, Northern Canada, North Asia, Europe, and America, the eclipse will be observed.

Professor Javed Iqbal of the University of Karachi Astronomer and Director of the Institute of Space Science and Technology declared that Pakistan cannot see its first solar eclipse until 2021.

The eclipse can occur around 1:12pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST). However, it is predicted to end at 3:42 p.m. at 3:34 p.m., said the Professor.

Annual eclipses occur when the Moon — passing between Earth and Sun — isn't quite near enough to cover the sunshine so that a thin solar disc ring is visible.

These eclipses occur every year or two and are observed via a narrow route on the planet only.

On 14 December 2020, the final solar eclipse occurred. Unfortunately, this solar eclipse was also not seen in Pakistan and the area of South Asia.

A solar eclipse happens around two weeks in the earth's shadow before or after a lunar eclipse. About a half of the Earth's surface shows lunar eclipses.

On 26 May, we had the last lunar eclipse that was also not visible in Pakistan.
