Annular solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse is when the moon covers the sun. An annular eclipse occurs when the moon covers the center of the sun, leaving a “ring of fire” to be seen by spectators. It is scheduled to begin at 08:46 Pakistan Standard Time and end at 14:34. The eclipse will be at its maximum at 11:40. Different cities will see the eclipse at different times.

How to see a solar eclipse?

Looking at a solar eclipse with the naked eye can be deadly to the eye and even cause blindness. NASA has advised avoiding looking at the sun directly, wearing special-purpose solar filters such as eclipse glasses, and supervising children throughout the duration of the eclipse. Sunglasses, even if very dark, are ineffective.
