Surya Grahan or Solar Eclipse 2021: Solar eclipse is back and you can see it on 4 December. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes in between the sun and the earth for one last time this year. However, only some people in the southern hemisphere will get a chance to witness it. On this occasion, the moon fully or partially blocks the sun’s light in the southern hemisphere. This casts a shadow in some areas of the Earth. Only one place can fully experience a solar eclipse and that place is Antarctica.Also Read – Surya Grahan 2021: Will Solar Eclipse be Visible in India?
