  1. Yesterday's (February 26, 2017) partial solar eclipse was of magnitude 99%. Partial or Annular Solar Eclipse is not same as the Total Solar Eclipse as the shadow of moon would not cover 100% of the Sun. However during annularity the shadow of the Moon would coincide with the center of the Sun to form a circular ring around the Sun.
