Solar Eclipse 2023 on October 14: Will India be able to see the ‘Ring of Fire’? Everything you need to know

    Skywatchers will be treated to an amazing skyshow on Saturday, October 14, when an Annular Solar Eclipse occurs. For the first time since 2012, the Solar Eclipse, often known as the ‘Ring of Fire,’ will be visible from most American cities.

    This Eclipse is known as a ‘Ring of Fire’ because the Sun appears in a peculiar form as a result of the Moon partially obscuring it. A sparkling ring develops in the sky as the Moon moves between the Sun and the Earth, partially hiding the Sun.  

    An annular eclipse happens when the moon’s apparent size is smaller than that of the sun, causing the sun to seem ring-like.

    It is worth noting that the annular Solar Eclipse on Saturday will be the last seen from the United States until June 21, 2039.
