Total Solar Eclipse 2019 will be visible on July 2 in South America, Pacific region and parts of Chile and Argentina just before the sunset. It will not be visible in India, but can be seen online through LIVE streaming platforms. According to timeanddate.com, the Coordinated Universal Time or UTC time for the solar eclipse or surya grahan will be 4:55 p.m. to 9:50 p.m. (UTC) on July 2. A point to remember is that solar eclipse should never be looked without proper eye protection. Proper eclipse glasses or an eclipse projector should be used to watch the solar eclipse or surya grahan. A solar eclipse happens when the moon casts a shadow on the Earth, fully or partially blocking the sun's light in some areas. The solar eclipse's totality is expected to last for 4 minutes and 33 seconds, making it longer than the same solar event that occurred in 2017.
