On April 20, there will be a rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse or Surya Grahan. On this day, the new moon blocks the sun which leads to a Hybrid Solar Eclipse. The eclipse will appear as a total in some places but will appear as an annual eclipse in others.
Recently, NASA took to Instagram to share details of the upcoming Hybrid Solar Eclipse and where can you watch it. It wrote, “On April 20, skywatchers in Australia and parts of southeast Asia will be able to view a hybrid solar eclipse as it passes over the Indian and Pacific Oceans.”
“Tolar eclipses occur when the Sun, the Moon, and Earth fully or partially align, casting a shadow on our home planet and obscuring the bright face of our closest star. Remember, it is unsafe to look directly at the Sun for most of the eclipse without specialized eye protection,” NASA wrote on Instagram.
