SUMMARY

The annular solar eclipse of 2019 was witnessed by thousands of enthusiastic people in the coastal states of Kerala, Karnataka and Telangana, where a ring of fire was seen in the morning sky. For the rest of India, clouds and fog blocked a clear view of the solar eclipse. The last solar eclipse of the decade started at around 8:08 AM and lasted for a little over three hours. Here are the glimpses of the solar eclipse and people enjoying the event in India:
