Solar eclipse happens 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.

The last solar eclipse seen in Vietnam was an annular eclipse on December 26 past year. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the angular diameter of the Moon falls short of that of the Sun so that it can not cover up the latter completely. The annular phase will, however, begin at 10.19 am (IST) and end at 2.02 pm (IST).

The year 2020 has seen two lunar eclipses already and now the first solar eclipse will happen on June 21.

According to the scientist, the coronavirus has broken out after a mutated particle interaction of the first neutron due to fission energy emitted after the solar eclipse. The shadow of the moon is then cast on the earth.

In Mumbai, the partial phase of the eclipse will begin at 10:09 am and will end at 1:27 pm.

The eclipse will seen partially in the Sultanate, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, most of Asia and southeastern Europe, most of Africa, the Pacific, and India. Dehradun, Kurukshetra, Chamoli, Joshimath, Sirsa, Suratgarh are few cities where the annular solar eclipse would be visible. He believes that the sunlight and the solar eclipse will be a natural remedy for the virus. As a result a ring of the Sun's disk remains visible around the Moon.

The solar eclipse will be seen as a partial eclipse over Qatar sky, starting over at 7:13am Doha local time, while reaching a maximum phase of eclipse at 8:30am, where Moon will cover 80% of Solar disc at the maximum of the solar eclipse on Qatar sky. Issuing an advisories including dos and don'ts for people who would like to watch the solar eclipse, the MoES said, "Eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time". The radiation would be much more direct than it was during the last solar eclipse that occurred earlier. It is advised that one must wear solar eclipse glasses while watching the sun during this period.
