India to miss partial solar eclipse

Sky gazers in India will miss the year's second partial solar eclipse Wednesday as it will not be visible in the country.

The second partial solar eclipse of 2011 will happen on June 1. The eclipse will not cover India but can be seen from the high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere.

The partial solar eclipse begins Wednesday at sunrise in Siberia and northern China where the shadow first touches earth at 10.55 p.m. (Indian time).

As seen from the Earth, a Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the Moon fully or partially covers the Sun as viewed from a location on Earth.
