The solar eclipse would be 95 percent around noon. Such event is happening after 25 years in Himachal Pradesh.
To popularize/promote the science of eclipses and to remove the misconceptions and superstitions associated with such kind of celestial events the Himachal Pradesh Council for Science, Technology & Environment (HIMCOSTE) is arranging for viewing of solar eclipse for limited viewers near parking of Ellerslie Building, HP Secretariat, State Headquarters Shimla and Padam Dev Complex, The Ridge, Shimla, stated a spokesperson.
The HIMCOSTE has also decided to seek write-ups/ppts from students on their experiences of watching celestial event. He added that the write up should not be more than three pages (less than 1500 words) or power point presentation having maximum of 10 slides. The students can send their entries at firstname.lastname@example.org
