The last solar eclipse of 2020 will occur on Monday, December 14 that will be seen from some parts of the world. The second and last solar eclipse of the year won’t be visible in India because of its time and the earth’s rotations and revolutions around its axis and orbit respectively.
It will be the only total solar eclipse of 2020 where the moon will completely cover the sun that will block the light coming from the Sun. As a result, there will be a dark shadow or “umbra” on the planet.
US space agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has confirmed that it will provide live coverage on Monday, Dec. 14, of a solar eclipse that will pass over South America, treating parts of Chile and Argentina to views of a total eclipse of the Sun.
Further, NASA says, “A Spanish-language program will air on NASA Television and the public channel on the agency’s website. A separate livestream of the eclipse without narration will air on the media channel. The programming will air in conjunction with the eclipse. The all-Spanish show will provide real-time views of the eclipse and discussions on how scientists use eclipses to study the Sun.”
With Monday’s eclipse, the year 2020 will have witnessed two solar eclipses. The first solar eclipse, which occurred on June 21, was visible in India too.
The solar eclipse will begin post-sunset in India, i.e. at 7:03 pm (IST) and end at 12:23 am on December 15. The eclipse will peak at 9:43 pm.
