When is the first solar eclipse of 2024 Will it be visible in India know

Solar Eclipse 2024: The new year has started. This is going to be very special from the point of view of science. This year two solar eclipses (Surya Grahan 2024) and two lunar eclipses (Chandra Grahan 2024) will be visible. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth. The Sun gets covered behind the Moon for some time and the affected part of the Sun is not visible. Similarly, a lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon comes into its shadow just behind the Earth. This can happen only when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned in such a sequence.

However, the first solar eclipse which is going to occur in the year 2024 will be visible in April. But can it be seen in India? Will we have to follow the Sutak period during the eclipse? Let us know.

When will the first solar eclipse of 2024 occur?

According to the American space agency NASA, the first solar eclipse of the year 2024 will take place on April 8. This will be a total solar eclipse and will start over the South Pacific Ocean and pass through Mexico, USA and Canada. Partial solar eclipse will be visible in some countries. These include Costa Rica, Cuba, Aruba, Cayman Islands, Dominica, French Polynesia and Jamaica.

What time will the solar eclipse occur on April 8?

Talking about timing, the solar eclipse which is going to occur on April 8 will start at 3:42 pm (UTC). At that time it will be 9:12 pm in India. The eclipse will end at 4:36 pm (UTC). Then it would be 10:06 pm in India.

Will the solar eclipse of April 8 be visible in India?

The timing of the solar eclipse makes it clear that during the eclipse it will be night time in India, i.e. the sun will have set. India is not included among the countries where the solar eclipse will be visible. Due to absence of solar eclipse in India, Sutak period will also not be effective in our country.
