New Delhi: India, this morning, missed the spectacular phenomenon of a total solar eclipse, as only a partial eclipse was seen from some places in the country, which began at 4 a.m.

"Today's eclipse, which was partial for many parts of India, was total in Indonesia and Malaysia regions," informed Dr. Ratnashree, the director of Nehru Planetarium.

As the new moon passes directly in front of the Sun during the early hours of March 9, millions of people across Indonesia and the Pacific were treated a total solar eclipse, which began at 6:19 am, according to the official Meteorology.

Western Australia saw a partial eclipse from 8am whereas Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart unfortunately missed the eclipse. It was also visible in Hawaii, east of the international dateline.

Total solar eclipses, a rare event, occur when the moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, and casts the darkest part of its shadow on Earth.
