As the name suggests it is a solar eclipse. There are three major types of solar eclipses.
The total solar eclipse, partial solar eclipse and the annular solar eclipse.
The name “annular” has its origin from a Latin word “annulus”, "a ring". If the characteristic ring of fire is visible from even just one location, the whole eclipse is called an annular solar eclipse.
However, in most places and for most of the duration, an annular eclipse looks like a partial solar eclipse. At Box of Science we are trying to reach out to people so that they may understand and observe this celestial event, as such events are very rare.
This graphic map is representation of the visibility of annular solar eclipse from India. The color gradient shows how the Sun will look from different locations in India.

An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's visible diameter is smaller than the Sun's, which blocks most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like a ring.
