A Solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, but the type of eclipse that unfolds depends on how far away the moon is from the Earth.

Experts had warned people not to look directly at the sun without any protective eye apparatus as it could damage eyesight. The radiation would be much more direct than it was during the last solar eclipse that occurred earlier.

We repeat, DO NOT stare directly at the eclipse if you plan on witnessing it. Remember to wear protective eye gear, like sunglasses or goggles, and don’t forget to wear sunscreen!
