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.

When the Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned in a straight line, an eclipse occurs.

The partial solar eclipse will start at 4:02 a.m. E.T. on August 11 and the moon will reach its maximum coverage of the sun at 5:46 a.m. E.T., according to NASA.

This weekend's partial solar eclipse will span across many countries in the Northern hemisphere on Saturday, Aug. 11 - becoming what could be the most widely viewed solar eclipse of 2018.

A pinhole projection can also be one way to witness the solar eclipse without the danger of damaging your eyes.

The peak of the partial eclipse was at 9.46am UT (10.46am BST) and ended at 11.30am UT (12.30pm BST).

You can see the viewing times for a few locations in Newfoundland and Quebec in the table below. The Surya Grahan will not be visible all over India as it is not big enough to cover all the places.

Those who reside in areas where the eclipse will be visible, must be warned that they should not look at the Sun directly.

In case you haven't been keeping track, this will be the third eclipse in less than a month. Following the blood moon on July 27, a partial solar eclipse will be witnessed today.

Photographic film is also inappropriate for taking a picture of the eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth comes between the moon and the sun, causing the moon to be covered by Earth's shadow and fade away. Just over a year ago, millions across North America were anxiously awaiting the "Great American Solar Eclipse" of August 21. As per the suggestions of the map, partial solar eclipse 2018 will be seen over North Pole and eastern parts of Siberia. It is referred to as "partial" because the moon does not block the entirety of the sun, when witnessed from the earth.

If one want's to capture the event on camera, either for photo's or video's, they should add a special solar filter for protection.
