Unfortunately, the total solar eclipse will not be visible in India. However, you can see the eclipse via a live webcam - from 10:59 am to 3:07 pm IST, according to timeanddate.com.

Sun is a very bright object, and looking at it directly can cause severe damage to the eye and vision. There are special goggles made for looking at the Sun. These goggles filter the sunlight for safe viewing.

Tips for viewing the eclipse:

  • Do not use sunglasses, goggles, exposed x-ray sheet or lampblack over a glass. They are not safe. Nor is viewing the Sun's image on the surface of the water.
  • Welders glass #13 or # 14 can be used to see the Sun directly with naked eyes.
  • Make a pinhole in a card sheet and hold it under the Sun. At some distance, keep a screen of white paper. Image of the Sun can be seen on this sheet. By adjusting the gap between the sheet and the screen, the image can be made larger.
  • Look at the shadow of a bush or a tree. With the gaps between the leaves acting like a pinhole, numerous images of the eclipsed Sun can be seen on the ground.
  • You can use a strainer for making pinhole images.
  • Cover the 'compact' makeup kit mirror with black paper, with a small hole at the centre.
  • Reflect the image of the Sun on a distant wall in shadow. You can get a projected image of the eclipsed Sun.
