Solar Eclipse 2021: As the year 2021 is heading towards its closure, people will get a chance to see the last solar eclipse or surya grahan of the year. The solar eclipse date is Saturday, December 4. However, it can be noted that the eclipse will not be seen in India but people can watch the live stream on YouTube and on nasa.gov/live.
