Where to see the last partial solar eclipse of 2018

The time of greatest eclipse, with almost 75 percent of the sun hidden, will occur at local sunset in Russian Federation from Kolyuchinskaya Bay in far northeast Siberia - a large, usually ice-covered bay in the Chukchi Sea on the northern shore of the Chukotka Peninsula.

A solar eclipse occurs, when Moon, the sun and the earth aligned in the same straight line.

The partial eclipse will be a small eclipse as the moon will cover only the edge of the sun, with much of the star still visible.

The third and final solar eclipse of 2018 is just around the corner and is set to be the most-watched eclipse of the year. The Aug. 11 eclipse marks the end of this eclipse season after two previous eclipses during the month of July. Earlier, on July 27, second and last lunar eclipse of 2018 was experienced in many countries including Pakistan.

You can see the viewing times for a few locations in Newfoundland and Quebec in the table below.

Although this will be a partial solar eclipse/ Surya Grahan for the year 2018 but will not be visible in India on 11 August.

Curious skywatchers are advised not to look directly at the sun during the rare cosmic event, because it won't be completely covered and its light can still cause eye damage. Also during that eclipse, the moon crossed the ecliptic going from north to south, the descending node of its orbit.

In this particular solar eclipse, the Sun will reportedly be obscured by the Moon for a total period of three and a half hours on August 11, 2018. In case of a total lunar eclipse, Earth comes between the Sun and Moon's path, and blocks sunlight from reaching the satellite.

The shadow will move from Greenland, part of North America to northern Europe and northeastern Asia. The moon will cover approximately 73% of the sun when the eclipse is at its peak. Addressing this particular belief of poisonous food during a solar eclipse, NASA had said a year ago, "Related to the false idea of harmful solar rays is that during a total solar eclipse, some kind of radiation is produced that will harm your food". Therefore, pinhole cameras and special solar eclipse glasses must be used to observe the phenomena.
