Thousands witness longest solar eclipse of the millennium

Annular Eclipse

KARACHI : The first and longest annular or ring-like solar eclipse of this millennium observed today in many countries including Pakistan.

The eclipse lasted for an average of about twelve hours. In Pakistan, it began at 10:11 am and ended at 2:16 pm. According to meteorologists, the eclipse partially observed in Pakistan and is visible in African countries, India, Sri Lanka, China and Myanmar.

Annular solar eclipses occur when the Moon is too far to cover the Sun entirely. Therefore, when the eclipse reaches totality, you would see a ring (Annulus) around the moon and hence the name annular.
