The ophthalmologists have described Sunday’s eclipse “dangerous for the human eye”.
Sunday's eclipse arrived on the northern hemisphere’s longest day of the year -- the summer solstice -- when Earth's north pole is tilted most directly towards the Sun.
June 21 also marks the longest day and shortest night of the year. From here the days will become smaller, while the nights start gaining more duration till they become longest on December 22.
The solar eclipse would begin at about 9:45am on Sunday across the country.
The Penumbral Eclipse will begin at 07:30 am.
