The last Solar Eclipse of the year will be visible from some parts of the world on 4 December 2021. Solar Eclipse is also called Surya Grahan in Hindi.

According to NASA, some people in the Southern Hemisphere will have the chance to experience a total or partial eclipse of the Sun on 4 December.

While total Solar eclipse will be visible only from Antarctica, partial solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Saint Helena, Namibia, Lesotho, South Africa, South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, Crozet Islands, Falkland Islands, Chile, New Zealand, and Australia. It will not be visible from India.

"A solar eclipse happens when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, fully or partially blocking the Sun’s light in some areas. For a total solar eclipse to take place, the Sun, Moon, and Earth must be in a direct line," NASA added.
