KATHMANDU, NEPAL – While a total solar eclipse will plunge portions of North America into darkness on April 8th (Chait 26th), Nepal will remain unaffected, confirmed Sarojraj Shahi, observatory manager and information officer of Koirala Memorial Planetarium and Observatory and Science Museum Development Committee in Kirtipur.

The eclipse, caused by the moon passing directly between the sun and Earth, will cast a shadow across Mexico, the United States, and Canada. Mr. Shahi clarified that Asian countries, including Nepal, will not experience any effects or visibility of this celestial event.

What is a Solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse occurs when the alignment of the sun, moon, and Earth is such that the moon blocks sunlight from reaching parts of Earth. This temporary blockage can create a striking period of darkness in affected regions.

Note: It’s important to remember that it’s never safe to look directly at the sun, even during a solar eclipse, without specialized eye protection.
