A total solar eclipse will be visible on March 20.
However, it will not be visible in India. Solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes exactly in front of the sun as seen from the earth, and thus blocking the sun. This happens on a new moon or amavasya day.
The sequence of events is as follows on March 20 will be as follows. The eclipse will begin at 1:11 pm when only a part of the sun would be cut off. At 2:42 pm. the sun will get fully blocked. At 3:48 pm the total phase of the eclipse will end and only a part of the sun will begin to appear. Finally, 5 20 pm the eclipse will end. However, from any given place on the earth, the total eclipse can be seen for a maximum of 2 minutes and 50 seconds.
The eclipse can be seen mostly from very high latitudes. This day also marks by a coincidence the beginning of spring, what is called the Spring Equinox.
On this day the length of the day will equal the length of the night, but thereafter the length of the day will progressively increase as the length of the night decreases.
