The Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium in Bengaluru has mounted telescopes to witness the partial solar eclipse on Tuesday evening.
Bengaluru is slated to see a partial solar eclipse on Tuesday, from 5:12 p.m. until 5:55 p.m., when the sun will likely set. The eclipse falls on the same day as Diwali, which was observed on Monday this year, and Balipadyami, which will be observed on Wednesday.
According to The Hindu, a solar eclipse coincided with Diwali in 1995. Only 10% of the eclipse would be seen in Bengaluru, according to the report. Astronomy fans in Bengaluru, however, need not be disappointed because the Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium has programmes planned to help you make the most of it.
According to a story in Bangalore Mirror, the planetarium has set telescopes for the general public to witness the astronomical event. It issued a circular noting that one can see the partial solar eclipse in the western evening sky by using solar goggles, which can protect one’s eyes and vision.
“Those with telescopes can arrange to view the sun’s image on a screen, which is a safer option.” According to the research, obscurity will be 10.09% in Bengaluru, 9.16% in Mysuru, 14.82% in Bellary, and 12.11% in Agumbe.
