Eclipses were deemed to be meaningless and religious long ago

It is not correct and it is nothing but Science- Astronomy – great!

Eclipses are two in number- what that happens on New moon Day is solar Eclipse

What that occurs on Full Moon Day is Lunar eclipse.

Tenth of June today the New Moon Day – and hence eclipse is SOLAR!

Annular solar eclipse is today when the Moon  passes between Earth and the Sun,

Partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.

During the eclipse, the Moon’s apparent diameter smaller than the Sun’s,

It blocks most of the Sun’s light and cause the Sun to look like an annulus (ring).

The annular eclipse visible from parts of northeastern Canada, Greenland

The Arctic Ocean (passing over the North Pole), and the Russian Far East,

While the eclipse appears partial from a region thousands of kilometres wide,

Including northern and eastern North America, most of Europe, and northern Asia.

Eclipse starts at 09:55 for 3 minutes 37 seconds along the northern shore of

 Lake Superior in OntarioCanada. The path of the ant umbral shadow

Heads across Hudson Bay through northwestern Quebec and the Hudson Strait to 

Baffin Island in Nunavut, where the town of Iqaluit will see three minutes

And five seconds of annularity. After this, it will travel across Baffin Bay 

And along the northwestern coast of Greenland, where greatest eclipse

Occurs at 10:41:56 UT1 in Naires Strait for 3 minutes 51 seconds.

The shadow will then cross Ellesmere Island and the Arctic Ocean,

Passing over the North Pole (which is located away from the central line

Of the eclipse but sees 2 minutes and 36 seconds of annularity).

Then heads south towards northeastern Siberia where the central line of

Annular eclipse ends at 11:29. The greatest city on the Russian Far East

In annular path, Srednekolymsk, will see three minutes and thirty five

Seconds of annularity, the maximum will occur at 11:27:05 UT1.
