In many places of India, partially eclipsed sunrise will happen and the begin of the fractional period of the eclipse will occur soon after sunrise from extreme northeast India.
“As one moves towards the east of the nation, the length of time of the partial eclipse expands coming to up to a duration of around one hour and more in extreme northeast India and in Andaman and Nicobar Islands,” sources stated.
Considering the Earth, all in all, the fractional period of the obscuration will start at 4:49 am while the total phase will start at 5:47 am. The total phase will end at 9:08 am and partial phase10:05 am.
In India obscuration of the Sun by the Moon at the time greatest phase of partial eclipse 24.5 percent in Bhubaneswar, 18.5 percent in Kolkata and 49 percent in Port Blair.
The total eclipse of the Sun would be visible with a narrow corridor on northern Hemisphere. The totality path would pass through Sumatra, Borneo, Indonesia and the North Pacific Ocean.

Eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time. It will cause permanent damage to the eyes leading to blindness even when the moon covers a most portion of the Sun. A safe technique to watch the solar eclipse is either by using a proper filter like aluminized Mylar, black polymer, the welding glass of shade number 14 or by making the projection of Sun’s image on a white board by telescope.
