Solar eclipse begins

Solar eclipse began over Karnataka with the moon covering the sun gradually though a cloudy sky blocked its clear visibility in Bengaluru, an official said on Thursday.

“Solar eclipse began at 8.06 a.m. over the state and will last for around 3 hours till 11.11 a.m. It is clearly visible in the coastal and northern areas of the state, while a cloudy sky is hiding the celestial event in Bengaluru and southern region,” state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium Director Pramod Galgali told reporters here.

Hundreds of sky gazers, astronomers, astro-physicists, astrologers and students assembled at the Planetarium and Lalbagh garden in this tech hub to witness the celestial event and had to wait for the cloudy weather to clear for viewing the partial eclipse in progress.
