October 14 is a good day for celestial enthusiasts across the globe. An annular solar eclipse will be seen on Saturday, the first since the year 2012. In fact, such an eclipse is not expected to be seen until the year 2046. 

This is a rare celestial event and will be visible in parts of South and Central America along with Mexico as well as the United States. For those who won't be able to see this, NASA has made it easy and will be live-streaming the same. This is especially important for India as the Eclipse won't be visible here and residents can stream the event live at 4.30 PM IST. 

Moreover, NASA has also made an interactive map so as to track the progress of the eclipse. As per NASA, the air may seem cooler and the sky may become dimmer, but not completely dark, as is the case during a total solar eclipse. 

Skywatchers have been warned to not look at the beautiful ring of fire through a telescope, camera lens or anything that's an optical device while wearing eclipse glasses as it may cause serious injuries to the eye.
