According to astronomers, the first solar eclipse of this year will take place on Sunday, June 21, which will also be visible in Pakistan.

Pakistan’s Meteorological Department says a total solar eclipse will occur at 11:40 a.m. and end at 2:34 p.m. The duration of a total solar eclipse will be one hour and 50 minutes. The eclipse will begin at one o’clock.
In most cities, the eclipse will cause darkness during the day and a ring-shaped halo around the sun.
The second solar eclipse in Pakistan this year will be on December 14.
Astronomers say that the eclipse occurs when the moon completely covers the sun. For this reason it is also called the Ring of Fire.
Astronomers say the Ring of Fire can be seen from Sukkur to Gwadar.
It may be recalled that earlier this month, lunar eclipses were seen in different countries of the world including Pakistan. The lunar eclipse started at 10:46 pm Pakistan time.

Regarding the lunar eclipse, Director Met Office Khalid Mahmood said that it would be difficult to see it with the naked eye.
