The April 20 solar eclipse will produce a "ring of fire" and complete darkness.

On April 20, there will be a "Ningaloo" hybrid solar eclipse that will produce both a total eclipse, during which the sky will briefly become entirely dark, and an annular eclipse, during which the Moon will partially block the Sun and provide a "ring of fire" effect.

Unfortunately, observers in India won't be able to see any of the eclipse's phases, total or annular. The western coast of Australia will offer the best views of the eclipse. The Australian Ningaloo shoreline is where the word "Ningaloo" originates. The eclipse can still be seen if you are not in western Australia at the time by tuning in to the live stream.

According to the Government of Western Australia, only one town—Exmouth on Australia's west coast—will be able to see a total solar eclipse.

According to retired NASA astrophysicist and eclipse expert Fred Espenak, a partial eclipse will be visible in Southeast Asia, the East Indies, the Philippines, New Zealand, and other regions of Australia. An annular eclipse will be visible to viewers in Timor-Leste and parts of Indonesia.
