Solar Eclipse Today: Surya Grahan Time, Visibility in India, Where to Watch and More

Solar Eclipse 2022: As the year comes to an end, the world is set to witness the second and the last solar eclipse on Tuesday (October 25). The partial solar eclipse will happen amid Diwali celebrations and can be seen in portions of Europe, western Asia, and northeast Africa. The solar eclipse is set to begin right before sunset in the afternoon and will last for an hour. The partial solar eclipse will be visible from most places, but, its ending will not be visible in the country as it will happen post-sunset.
The Indian cities that will experience the partial solar eclipse are New Delhi, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chennai, Ujjain, Varanasi and Mathura.

In Delhi, the solar eclipse will begin at 4:29 pm IST
In Mumbai, the solar eclipse will begin at 4:49 pm IST
In Kolkata, the solar eclipse will begin at 4:52 pm IST
In Chennai, the solar eclipse will begin at 5:14 pm IST
The duration of the eclipse (from the beginning up to sunset time) will be 1 hr 13 min and 1 hr 19 min for both Delhi and Mumbai, respectively.
The duration of the solar eclipse from the beginning up to sunset time will be 31 min and 12 min in Kolkata and Chennai.

The Surya Grahan cannot be seen from Andaman & Nicobar Islands and some parts of north-east India (name of few of such places are Aizawl, Dibrugarh, Imphal, Itanagar, Kohima, Sibsagar, Silchar, Tamelong etc.).
A solar eclipse is a phenomenon in which the moon passes between the sun and the earth, casting a dark shadow on the earth that can completely or partially block sunlight in some areas. During the maximum eclipse, the Moon will hide the Sun to a degree of around 40 to 50 per cent in the country’s northwestern areas. The percentage coverage will be lower than the statistics indicated above in other parts of the country. At the time of the maximum eclipse, the Moon will cover around 44 per cent of the Sun in Delhi and 24 per cent in Mumbai.
The next solar eclipse will be visible from India on August 2, 2027. It will be a total solar eclipse. From all parts of the country it will be seen as partial solar eclipse.
Eclipsed Sun should not be viewed with the naked eye, even for a very short time. It will cause permanent damage to the eyes leading to blindness even when the Moon covers most portion of the Sun. Safe technique to observe the solar eclipse is either by using proper filter like aluminized Mylar, black polymer, welding glass of shade number 14 or by making projection of Sun’s image on a white board by telescope.

12 Arrested For Killing Baby Elephant In Korba, Chhattisgarh

Korba: Chhattisgarh forest authorities have arrested 12 persons and detained a minor boy for allegedly killing an elephant calf and burying the carcass in Korba. The accused spotted the calf on October 18 and allegedly poisoned it the next day. Later, a herd of 44 elephants to which the calf belonged went on a rampage and killed a man.
Forest authorities said they have arrested 12 people and detained a minor boy for allegedly killing an elephant calf and burying the carcass in a paddy farm, officials said on Sunday. Katghora Divisional Forest Officer Premlata Yadav said that as per the preliminary investigation, the accused spotted the elephant calf at the farm in Bania village under the Pasan forest range on October 18 and allegedly poisoned it to death the next day and buried the carcass in the farm to hide the crime.
Later, a herd of 44 elephants to which the calf belonged went on a rampage and killed a man and three cattle in the nearby Devmatti village, she said.
Acting on a tip-off, forest personnel exhumed the carcass on October 20 following which an investigation was launched into its killing, she said.
Forest personnel found that paddy had been planted freshly on the patch of land where the carcass was buried to cover up the killing, she said. A case was registered for the offence under provisions of the Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972.
Efforts are on to trace the main accused, who is a member of the Pasan janpad panchayat.
The districts prominently affected by human-elephant conflict are Surguja, Raigarh, Korba, Surajpur, Gariaband, Jashpur and Balrampur.

Salman Rushdie Lives, But Loses Use of Eye and Hand: Report

New York: Salman Rushdie’s agent says the author has lost sight in one eye and the use of a hand as he recovers from an attack from a man who rushed the stage at an August literary event in western New York, according to a published report.
Literary agent Andrew Wylie told the Spanish language newspaper El Pais in an article published Saturday that Rushdie suffered three serious wounds to his neck and 15 more wounds to his chest and torso in the attack that took away sight in an eye and left a hand incapacitated.
Rushdie, 75, spent years in hiding after Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a 1989 edict, a fatwa, calling for his death after publication of his novel “The Satanic Verses,” which some Muslims consider blasphemous. Over the past two decades, Rushdie has traveled freely.
Hadi Matar, 24, of Fairview, New Jersey, has been incarcerated after pleading not guilty to attempted murder and assault in the Aug. 12 attack on Rushdie as he was being introduced at the Chautauqua Institution, a rurally located center 55 miles (89 kilometers) southwest of Buffalo that is known for its summertime lecture series.
After the attack, Rushdie was treated at a Pennsylvania hospital, where he was briefly put on a ventilator to recover from what Wylie told El Pais was a “brutal attack” that cut nerves to one arm.
Wylie told the newspaper he could not say whether Rushdie remained in a hospital or discuss his whereabouts.
“He’s going to live … That’s the important thing,” Wylie said.
The attack was along the lines of what Rushie and his agent have thought was the “principal danger … a random person coming out of nowhere and attacking,” Wylie told El Pais.
“So you can’t protect against it because it’s totally unexpected and illogical,” he said.
Wylie told the newspaper it was like Beatles member John Lennon’s murder. Lennon was shot to death by Mark David Chapman outside his Manhattan apartment building Dec. 8, 1980, hours after the singer had signed an autograph for Chapman.
In a jailhouse interview with The New York Post, Matar said he disliked Rushdie and praised Khomeini. Iran has denied involvement in the attack.

Delhi’s Air Quality Stands at 259 AQI, Least Polluted in 7 Years on Diwali Eve, But…

New Delhi: What can be termed as a piece of good news for all Delhiites and people living around the city, the National Capital on Sunday recorded an air quality index (AQI) of 259, which was the lowest for the day before Diwali in seven years, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) data showed.
However, it is important to note that the air quality in the capital is predicted to turn “very poor” on Monday morning while it could worsen to the “severe” category on Tuesday due to emissions from firecrackers and an increase in the share of smoke from stubble burning because of a favourable wind speed and direction.
An AQI between zero and 50 is considered “good”, 51 and 100 “satisfactory”, 101 and 200 “moderate”, 201 and 300 “poor”, 301 and 400 “very poor”, and 401 and 500 “severe”.
Delhi Pollution:  PAST YEARS’ DATA

In 2021, the AQI on November 3 (a day before Diwali) was 314.
It had shot up to 382 on the Diwali day and 462 the next day.
In 2020, Delhi recorded an AQI of 296 a day before Diwali (November 13)
The quality worsened to 414 on Diwali and 435 the day after.
The capital logged an AQI of 287 on the day before the festival in 2019.
It worsened to 337 on Diwali (October 27) and further to 368 the next day.
The AQI was 338 on the day before Diwali in 2018.
Interestingly, it improved to 281 on the Diwali day before aggravating to 390 the next day.
According to the data shared by CPCB, the AQI was 302 and 404 on the day before Diwali in 2017 and 2016

In case firecrackers are burst like last year, the air quality may plunge to “severe” levels on the night of Diwali itself and continue to remain in the “red” zone for another day. The contribution of stubble burning to Delhi’s PM2.5 pollution has so far remained low (up to 5 per cent) due to a slow transport-level wind speed.
“However, the transport-level wind direction and speed is likely to become very favourable from Monday afternoon. It will increase the share of stubble burning in Delhi’s PM2.5 pollution to 15-18 per cent on October 25 and push the air quality into the ‘severe’ category,” said Gufran Beig, founder project director, SAFAR.
