The Solar eclipse or the Surya Grahan falling on 21st August 2017 will not be visible in India. The eclipse will start from 9.16PM and will end at 2.34 AM (IST).
United States of America will be the only country to witness the total solar eclipse. People from almost 14 states in US will be able to watch the total eclipse, while partial eclipse would be visible from around 50 states in US. Rest of the world will have only partial eclipse. The last total eclipse was visible in US in 1918.
Residents of a few states of Canada, Central America, Mexico, Caribbean Islands, Europe and Russia would be able to view Partial eclipse. As the solar eclipse will not be visible in India, there would be no ‘sutak’ time because of surya grahan.
People in India will be able to watch the total eclipse happening in US millions of miles away through the live streaming on YouTube. The live streaming will be made possible through a small auxiliary telescope mounted on the main astronomical telescope.
