People in parts of the Northern Hemisphere are in for a treat as they will get a chance to watch the celestial event of ‘ring of fire’ or the annular Solar Eclipse. The Solar Eclipse or Surya Grahan will take place on Thursday, June 10.
An annular Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon moves right in front of the Sun, blocking it, except for a ring around the edges and this creates the ‘ring of fire’. The eclispse will be seen in parts of Canada, Greenland, and northern Russia.
“Viewers in parts of the eastern United States and northern Alaska will see a partial solar eclipse along with much of Canada and parts of the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and northern Africa,” US space agency NASA said.
In few countries, the partial eclipse of the Sun will also be seen.
Solar Eclipse, ring of fire: Date and time in India
Solar Eclipse will take place on Thursday, June 10
The eclipse will start at 1:42 PM (IST) and continue till 6.41 PM (IST)
The duration of the annular eclipse will be around 3 minute and 51 seconds.
Why is it called ‘Ring of Fire’?
When the Moon is farthest from Earth, the Moon appears smaller and does not block the entire light of the Sun and there is a ring of sunlight created. In simpler terms, because of the distance, the moon appears a bit smaller and does not block the entire view of the Sun. This is when a ring of light is witnessed. This is also referred to as the ‘Ring of Fire.’

Authorities have ordered that no vehicle with outside number shall ply in any public place unless registered in accordance with Motor Vehicles Act in J&K.
“It has been observed that considerable number of vehicles registered outside Jammu & Kashmir (from adjoining States of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi etc.] have been purchased by the residents of the Jammu and Kashmir and are being plied across the Jammu & Kashmir unauthorizedly, without having been registered with the concerned Registering Authorities (RTOs/ARTOs), in contravention to the explicit provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989,” reads a circular issued by Hirdesh Kumar (IAS) Commissioner Secretary to Government, Transport Department.
