Year’s last solar eclipse to be visible for 20 minutes in Bhubaneswar

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

A partial solar eclipse will occur today at 2.28 pm and last until 5.32 pm. The celestial phenomenon will be seen in Bhubaneswar between 4.56 and 5.16 pm for roughly 20 minutes. Furthermore, only 10% to 15% of the Sun will be obscured by the Moon. The excitement among skywatchers is high since this is the last eclipse of the year. However, experts cautioned people from observing the spectacle with their bare eyes.

A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes in front of the Earth and the Sun, aligning all three celestial bodies in a straight line, preventing sunlight from shining on Earth. The Sarva Moksha will occur at 6:26:52 PM, while the eclipse will happen at 4:56:52 PM.

The Chhatisa Nijog at Puri Srimandir has set the specific ceremonial timetable with the eclipse in mind. Before the ceremonies come to an end, the “Dwara Phita” ritual will be conducted at 12 am, followed by the “Sakala Dhupa” ritual between 2.30 and 3 am, the “Bala Dhupa” ritual at 4 am, and the “Bhoga Mandap” rite at 4.55 am.

Following the “Bhoga Mandap” ceremony, the “Radha Damodar Besha Mailam” ritual, the “Mahasnana” ritual, the other ceremonies, and the eclipse will all take place.
