In a Diwali treat, Indians in several parts of the country, including Delhi, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Bengaluru, and Chennai, witnessed a partial solar eclipse a few hours before sunset on Tuesday, 25 October.

Not just in India, the partial solar eclipse was also reportedly visible from the Middle East region as well as parts of north-eastern Africa, Western Asia, and Europe.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, thus obscuring the Earth's view of the sun either partially or totally. The next partial solar eclipse that can be observed from parts of India will take place five years later on 2 August 2027, as per the Ministry of Earth Science.
