It will start with a partial solar eclipse on January 6, though it will not be visible in India, Dr Rajendraprakash Gupt, Superintendent of the Ujjain-based Jiwaji Observatory, told news agency PTI.
On January 21, a total lunar eclipse will take place which too would not be visible in India as it would be daytime here, he informed.
