Solar Eclipse: Know the timing and Sutak for the first solar eclipse of the year on June 10,

The first solar eclipse of the year 2021 is going to happen on June 10. But it will be partially visible in some states of the North-East in India. The solar eclipse will start at 1.42 pm and end at 6.41 pm. During this time the moon will completely cover the sun which is called pebble solar eclipse., but this view will be visible only from parts of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. Nainital-based Aryabhatta Dispatch and Research Institute will live streaming the solar eclipse on its website.


According to Dr. Virendra Yadav, Public Outreach Program in charge of ARIZ, this will be the first solar eclipse of the year which is also called Kankarakriti eclipse in Hindi. In fact, in this state, the Moon completely covers the Sun due to which the sun appears in the shape of a shiny bangle or a ring. But people from most parts of India will not be able to see this sight. This eclipse will be visible from Europe including America, Europe, Canada near the North Pole. In India, it will also be visible for a few minutes in some parts of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. But ordinary citizens will be able to see this eclipse through live streaming on the page of ARIZ.

There will be only two solar eclipses this year. The second solar eclipse will happen on December 4. Apart from this, there will be a lunar eclipse on November 19 which will be visible from some parts of India. Scientists will make special preparations to see this eclipse in ARIZ as well.

Haridwar's monasteries and temples will not be closed due to the solar eclipse


The monasteries and temples of Haridwar will not be closed on the day of the solar eclipse on June 10 as the solar eclipse will be visible in India only for 15 minutes that too in Jammu and Kashmir. It will not be visible in Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana etc. Neither its sutak will be imposed nor the temple will be closed. There will be no effect of this. According to Pandit Prateek Mishrapuri of the Indian Prach Vidya Society, the first solar eclipse of this year is taking place on the new moon day on June 10. Shani Jayanti and Vat Savitri Vrat are also observed on this day. This eclipse is taking place in Taurus and Mrigashira constellation. This eclipse will not be visible anywhere in India except parts of Jammu and Kashmir, so the Sutak period of this eclipse will not be valid here. Therefore, Vat Savitri Vrat and Shani Jayanti festival can also be celebrated.

Women fast


On the day of Jyeshtha Amavasya, all married women observe a fast for the happiness of Brahma's wife Savitri and ask for the boon of being married forever. Women will keep this fast on 9th June as there is an eclipse on 10th June. According to both Skanda Purana and Bhavishya Purana, women observe this fast for good fortune. On this day, women worship Lord Brahma's wife Savitri by keeping an earthen pot under the banyan tree and placing an idol of Savitri in it, keeping the suhaag stuff. They asked for a long-married life for themselves. According to Jyotishcharya Prateek Mishrapuri, on this day the moon comes to its exalted zodiac sign which provides longevity. In many parts of India, this fast is also observed on Jyeshtha Shukla Purnima. This fast is observed on the day of the meeting of Chaturdashi and Amavasya. This time this festival is coming on 9th June.
