From this location, it will last 11 minutes. After one of the longest Lunar Eclipse/ Chandra grahan on 27 July, India is all set to witness the next eclipse of the year on 11 August. The Moon gradually came out of Earth's shadow and partial eclipse ended at 3:49 am, the statement said.

What time is the solar eclipse?

Even some parts of the World as well will witness the partial solar eclipse on 11 August 2018. The eclipse will last for over 3 hours and it will be visible in Northern hemisphere regions. The nature and extent of this eclipse will vary from location to location, and those residing in India will be unable to see the Solar eclipse.

An eclipse should not be seen with the naked eye, maintains NASA as it can cause damage to the eye.
