Explain in common man language How and Why 11Aug Eclipse is not visible In India ?
Solar Eclipse occurs when Moon comes between Earth And Sun such a way that ..shadow of Moon falls on Earth..
But Moon Shadow during solar eclipse will not fall at all places at a time on Moon,Earth are Moving across would the shadow of Moon..travels across face of earth from point a to point b.
Hence India is not in the path of Moon shadow on 11 Aug 2018 so Eclipse is not visible here.
