The world will witness the last total solar eclipse of the year, today on Saturday, December 4. The eclipse will be visible prominently in South America, Australia, South Africa and in countries in the Southern Atlantic. According to experts, the solar eclipse will last four hours and eight minutes. According to the scientific community, a solar eclipse happens when the moon moves between the sun and the earth, thereby casting a shadow on the earth as the moon partially or fully blocks the sun’s light. A total solar eclipse is formed when the sun, moon and earth are in a direct line.
According to NASA, the solar eclipse will begin as a partial solar eclipse on December 4 at 5:29 am Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The total solar eclipse will begin at 7:00 am (UTC) and end at 9:37 am (UTC). The last total solar eclipse of the year is being considered to be very special by astrologists as the day is also being observed as Shani Amavasya. The astrologers firmly believe December 4 is a wonderful day because of the coincidence. According to Hindu religious texts, Shani Dev is the son of God Surya and if both the planets sun and Saturn are pleased the time and day turns to be auspicious.
