If you were in India, you probably got the opportunity to witness the longest solar eclipse of this century. Although it was visible from almost anywhere in the country, you were better of especially if you were located in the southern part. The eclipse was estimated to continue for several minutes, but unfortunately most of the “sun dial was obscured by the moon.” But still a solar eclipse is no lunar eclipse and is possibly one of the rarest thing you will ever come across in a lifetime.
India will see more solar eclipses. It has been reported that the next solar eclipse will happen on Dec 29, 2019 and Jun 21, 2020.
